Emmanuel House is a Spiritual Formation Center that is committed to developing reflective, missional leaders through classes, retreats and personal Spiritual Direction. Our goal is to partner with local churches and ministries to cultivate lay-leaders who are strong in the Biblical texts, skilled in working with others and sensitive to the culture in which they minister. We want to help leaders engage in the process of their own spiritual formation as they point others to Christ.
Our hope is to provide leadership training and spiritual direction to those who don't have the time or resources to attend a traditional seminary. We also want to be a resource for local churches and other ministries that don't have the resources or manpower to do this kind of training themselves.
So far, we have seen about 40 students graduate with the equivalent of a Master's Degree of Divinity (MDIV) and/or certification in spiritual direction. Even those who did not complete the Master's requirements gained much just by being at Emma House for a short time!
