Everyone makes decisions. We face little choices daily and major decisions throughout our lives. God is present with us, guiding us throughout our lives, but how do we know we are hearing God? How can we be more attentive to God’s guidance? This course offers practices, biblical-theological insights, and a process to equip participants to be as intentional as possible in discerning God’s guidance. The fruit of learning to discern well is wisdom and a deeper relationship with God. 

This five-week course will be on Tuesdays from 7:30-9:30pm (April 4 – May 2).

Each session will include teaching, personal reflection questions, and group discussion.

There will be a moderate amount of mid-week homework:

  • Daily Lectio Divina
  • Daily Prayer of Examen
  • Brief Reflection Paper (between a half-page and two pages)
  • Optional Activity: Clearness Committee

Week 1: Decisions and Prayer
Week 2: Scripture, Spirit, and Community
Week 3: Heart and Mind
Week 4: Discernment Process
Week 5: Stories and Next Steps

Recommended Reading (not required):
The Voice of Jesus, Gordon T. Smith


  1. The course fee covers printing costs and also gives participants a little incentive to show up and participate since they paid for it. 
  2. The number of participants is limited. Your registration questions will be reviewed and we will get back to you about whether you are accepted into this course. If not, your course fee will be refunded.
  3. If you participated in "Identity" and/or "Gifting and Calling," there is no need to respond to the registration questions again. Simply write "see earlier registration."
