Living Compass Certification Workshop FREE to matriculated GTS students & faculty/staff


Living Compass Coaching Certification Workshop.   The Living Compass Faith and Wellness Ministry is a new ministry that is helping Episcopal Churches across the country do the following:

  • strengthen the wellness and wholeness of individual members
  • create deeper, authentic community between members
  • provide programs that are easily accessible nonmembers in the community
  • provide programs that can be easily offered off-site in other settings in the community

Living Compass is flexible and adaptable to each local context.  It provides resources to run small groups, adult and youth formation classes, and parenting wellness groups/classes, in addition to resources for teen and youth programs.  Living Compass is also an effective tool for one-to-one pastoral care and spiritual direction.

Participants in this workshop will receive the training and certification necessary to offer all Living Compass programs.

The format of this day will be highly collaborative and participatory.
