Programme Description

Christ has called us to cultivate a deeper and more intimate relationship with him. Our spiritual formation, however, can be hindered in two ways.

Some of us may be comfortable with understanding faith cognitively, but many wrestle with how imagination and emotions fit into Christian formation. Others may struggle to differentiate a human experience with an authentic encounter with God.

For these reasons, there is a crucial need for personal spiritual discernment and more importantly, co-discernment in community, and with experienced guides. Through this GCSF, BGST hopes to help Christians establish a biblical understanding of spiritual formation and how to apply it.

The DipTS is right for you if:

  • You are interested in Christian history, spirituality and faith .

  • You desire to lead others in the journey of spiritual formation in your small group or other ministries in church.

  • You are a marketplace Christian who aspires to bring spiritual formation into your workplace in creative ways.
