Certificate in Spiritual Direction

Do people look to you for advice or spiritual counsel? When those opportunities come up, do you sometimes feel inadequate to the task? Or do you plunge right in without really taking time to touch the person’s soul? If you want to be more spiritually effective in helping others with problems in their lives, you will benefit by the teaching and practice presented in the Certificate in Spiritual Direction curriculum offered by NewWay Ministries and Dr. Larry Crabb in collaboration with Our Daily Bread University.

In an attempt to lower students’ costs and provide even more opportunities for spiritual growth, we’ve changed our arrangement with New Way Ministries. With the Certificate in Spiritual Direction courses now available through our premium subscription, instead of paying $40 per course you can now study all four SoulCare courses for less than $10 per month. Now only that, but your monthly subscription gives you unlimited access to our entire library of premium courses. (Over 170 and counting!)

All of your previous work is saved. You won’t have to retake any courses. When you purchase your subscription, be sure to use the same email address you’ve used when registering for SoulCare courses in the past.
