CCS Upcoming Courses
CCS Upcoming Courses
The Center for Christian Spirituality (CCS) offers courses in ascetical theology, spiritual direction and the spiritual guidance of children. Whether you are pursuing a formal program of study or simply wish to take a course to enhance your ministry or spiritual journey, you will find something here that will interest you.
Courses come in a variety of formats, both traditional and new. Courses might meet once a week for twelve weeks, over six weeks in a module format, biweekly, or over a few days or a weekend in an intensive format. For intensive courses, students undertake reading and practical work in advance and then complete final written or praxis-related projects within several weeks after the course.
Here are upcoming CCS courses in Summer 2013. To learn more about these courses, including days and times for class sessions, visit the seminary's online registration system.
