THE ASSOCIATION OF
Covenant Spiritual Directors
The Gift of Caring Presence
Are you seeking a deeper relationship with Christ? A soul friend or spiritual companion can offer support, encouragement, and accountability on your journey. Spiritual direction is a ministry of listening, discernment, and prayer in a confidential setting of encouragement and compassion. Through this ministry one discerns the presence and work of God’s Spirit with a companion who sets aside the concerns of their own life to attend to the experience of God in the life of another.
We are committed to the foundational Covenant question,“How goes your walk with Christ?
About the Association of Covenant Spiritual Directors
Our desire in the Evangelical Covenant Church is for individuals to have a deep, abiding life with Christ. This kind of experience is in keeping with the strong traditions of our denomination as we consider the formational question in the narrative of our history together: “How goes your walk with Christ?” We believe that a gentle, listening presence can help bring transformation in people’s lives.
The Association of Covenant Spiritual Directors (ACSD) exists to facilitate a broader connection between Covenant-affiliated spiritual directors.
We provide a team of vetted directors who provide visibility and advocacy for the practice of spiritual direction, support and resource our members, and coordinate shared ministries with regional conference networks. Members often offer direction at Covenant regional and national events.
