Spiritual Direction Certificate

Cherry Hill Seminary is pleased to offer a new program that is the first of its kind, as currently there are no programs grounded in earth-relating/deities-honoring spiritualities. The Spiritual Direction Certificate is unique because it not only helps spiritual directors to be deeply grounded in their own spiritual identity, but also equips them to practice with clients of a variety of (and no) spiritual identities.

This 24-month virtual program is for seekers – those who are discerning a call to spiritual direction ministry and who wish to explore that call. Does this sound like you?
