Itinerant Spiritual Directors


PAX is excited to offer the Itinerant Spiritual Directors Program.

The Itinerant Spiritual Directors (ISD) program is a grant program that offers your church the opportunity to add a trained spiritual director to your staff for a pre-determined amount of days per month.

We recognize that many churches would welcome having a staff person trained in spiritual direction bringing with them knowledge and training in spiritual formation; yet budgetary and time issues can cause difficulty in making this staffing advantage a reality. The itinerant model offers the benefit of being cost effective while also preserving a confidential space for members and staff to meet with a spiritual director not already known to them in a different role. Also, an itinerant spiritual director can lead spiritual formation small groups and/or workshops.

The Itinerant Spiritual Directors program can be tailored to meet the needs of your church. Space is limited, so please be sure to take advantage of this grant program and find out how your church can benefit from having a spiritual director on staff. Also be sure to explore how the ISD program can help you to bring the PAX Institute training programs into your church.

To explore how you can become a part of the ISD program, please contact Rama Ziegenhals at
