DSF is excited to offer Spiritual Direction sessions to its students in partnership with certified spiritual directors, who are specially trained in accompanying people on their spiritual journeys. Each session is a one-on-one meeting with one of the spiritual directors listed below (and other spiritual directors who may be added along the way). Each DSF student may meet for spiritual direction once per month; the duration of the meetings depends on the individual spiritual director. The cost for students is $40 per session. DSF is covering all other costs.

Applications to become an NBA Incubate Partner open every year in the spring. Our Partners receive up to four years of access to professional consultants, opportunities for learning, peer support, and grant funding. In a spirit of mutuality, Incubate Partners agree to share the story of their mission with the wider Disciples community and beyond. Together, we expand the church’s understanding of and capacity for health and social service ministry as part of Christ’s work in the world.


BELOVED Compassion Network (BCN) has been teaching and facilitating the Compassion Practice since 2016. Its healing and transforming power has been especially impactful in the lives and ministries of Emerging Clergy and seminarians already serving in ministry.
