Spiritual Formation

Turning Information About God Into Experience With God

It’s possible to know a lot about God without actually having a relationship with him. Spiritual Formation ministry helps people turn what they know about God into experiences with God. We do this by introducing people to spiritual practices, offering spiritual direction and hosting The Clearing, a monthly contemplative worship experience.

Spiritual Direction

God invites each of us on a unique journey with him. As we follow him, there are times when we sense a clear path forward and at other times the trail is hard to find.   Spiritual directors are trained to walk with you as you look for God at work in your life. We meet one-on-one with people, usually once a month to listen, offer observations and ask questions.

Everyone who serves on our spiritual directing team has either completed training or is currently enrolled in the Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction.

If you would like to receive more information about spiritual direction, please contact Michelle Bauer at michelle@vineyardaugusta.org or at 706.863.9766.

Soul Care

September 2020

Sowing Seed

God is always at work in our lives – loving, teaching, guiding, and correcting. The Parable of the Sower uses the metaphor of seed and soil to help us understand why we aren’t always able to hear his voice or put what he shows us into practice.

Forming a close relationship with Jesus is a two-way street – he initiates by scattering the seed and then waits for us to respond. Is the soil of your soul ready to receive him?
