Spiritual Formation Trainings
courses & workshops to stimulate growth

Outdoor Workshop Setting

The growth process as a follower of Jesus is at times exhilarating, at times arduous. Alongside the refining work which is forged alone or within close relationships, intentional learning in the company of others often provides just the stimulus for growth we need. Courses, workshops or spiritual retreats offer fresh insight and motivation for our spiritual formation.

Deeper Devotion offers a variety of courses and workshops, each which can be tailored for the audience.
