Transformation Intensive

The Transformation Intensive course is taking a sabbatical year from 2019-2020 to give our leaders a rest after 5 years of ministry. Applications for 2020-2021 will open next spring. If you are interested in exploring other ways to engage Ignatian spirituality, please email

The Transformation Intensive is a rigorous eight-month course of spiritual formation inspired by the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola. It requires participants to set aside an hour a day for prayer and faithful attendance of weekly meetings for instruction and small group spiritual direction.

The Intensive is designed to help people encounter Christ in the gospel narratives and be transformed by Him. It is a school of prayer, healing, and spiritual renewal.

Historically, it has been used as a method of discernment for important life decisions. It is ideal for anyone deciding whether or not to be part of a church planting team, discerning a call to ministry, or pondering a career change.
