MCC Spiritual Direction Network
The Office for Leadership and Development launched a new initiative in 2016 in the area of Spiritual Direction. Because we affirm the importance of the individual’s spiritual journey and formation, the MCC Spiritual Direction Network has been formed to bring emphasis to the ministry of Spiritual Direction within MCC. Further, the Network will provide information and guidance to MCC’ers worldwide about the nature and purpose of Spiritual Direction and provide a list of Network Members to those seeking Spiritual Direction within an MCC or inclusive context. This Network will bring significant attention to the Contemplative nature of Spiritual Formation making it a perfect companion for other resources available in MCC such as “Creating a Life that Matters” and the L.E.A.D. program for leadership development.
Beyond the provision of information and emphasis, the Spiritual Direction Network will serve as a referral source for anyone seeking information about Spiritual Directors who have demonstrated a passion to work from an inclusive perspective. Additionally, because the cost of traditional Spiritual Direction is often beyond the reach of Seminarians, In-Care persons and Clergy in transitional or small church situations, the Network will also seek to ensure a pool of Spiritual Directors who are committed to making Spiritual Direction available for all who desire it. Finally, the Spiritual Direction Network will serve as a supportive arena for Spiritual Directors within MCC by providing for open discussion, and resources for continuing education and professional development.
For more information about the network, please contact Rev. Elder Dr. Mona West at RevMonaWest@MCCchurch.net . The OFLD is excited to add this ministry to the other resources that have been made available for all MCC’ers worldwide.
