Our Purpose

The Canadian Fellowship of Christian Spiritual Directors (CFCSD) exists to champion Christian spiritual directors in their work, advocate the ministry of spiritual direction within Canadian churches and connect those seeking spiritual direction with trained spiritual directors and prayer companions.


  • Champion

    • We seek to provide opportunities for the individual growth of affiliated spiritual directors through supportive fellowship, professional ministry development, resourcing and encouragement.


  • Advocate

We seek to increase the awareness among pastoral ministry leaders, congregations and leaders about the role of spiritual direction in Christian formation.


  • Connect
