The process of being formed into the likeness of Jesus for the sake of others and the world
Spiritual Formation at the Vineyard is a ministry purposed to array individuals and our other ministries with formational tools that facilitate God’s ongoing work in our lives. We collaborate on services and meetings, initiate formational small groups, and offer spiritual direction all with this central aim. God is up to beautiful things in this world, and we simply want to join Him in what He’s up to.
Many of us have a desire to go to deeper places with God, but we’re not sure how to get there. If that’s you, we invite you to participate in some of these events and practices with us. If you are a leader who would like to bring spiritual formation into the ministry you lead, someone from our team would love to collaborate with you.

Formational Small Groups
Various weekly and bi-weekly formational focused meetings in a Small Group setting
Spiritual formation in the life of a Jesus-follower happens best in the context of community and with intention and repetition. It’s our aim to offer at least one formational small group each trimester: fall, winter, and summer. Formational Small Groups are less about doing or learning (although that happens too) and more aimed at discovering and surrendering to what God’s already doing in a person’s journey of faith.
All our small groups are vital and the Vineyard offers a wide-range of small group tracks, but if you’d like to choose one that is Spiritual Formation-focused, go to our Small Groups page and select the Formation filter under Track.
A quarterly meeting for local spiritual directors providing on-going professional development
A supervision is a positive and enabling process that offers the opportunity to bring a spiritual director and a skilled supervisor together to reflect on work practice. Our cohort brings multiple spiritual directors together at one time to learn from each other as they collaborate with a supervisor. It is the process by which a director can review and evaluate their work through discussion, report and observation with colleagues. If you are an already-trained spiritual director in the Augusta area, the invitation to you is open. Contact Angela Otero to learn more.
