Group Spiritual Companioning

Group Spiritual Companioning is a growing ministry that responds to an increased need for small, spiritual communities in our churches, schools, and society. The groups serve to be a safe and sacred place where one's story is heard and where attention is paid to asking intentional questions and making observations that help to clarify one's experience. 

Spiritual Companioning groups meet once a month and are a way for people to connect on a deeper level about where God and the Spirit may be moving in their life. Usually a meal is shared and then there is a good mix of silence, prayer, sharing and responding. Companioning Groups are available for:

  • Students
  • Faculty and Staff
  • CSB Alumnae
  • Couples
  • Co-workers
  • Parish members
  • Friends

You do not need to work at or attend the college or live in the area. We have groups meeting across the state and can help you join an existing group or start your own.  If you are interested or would like more information about Group Spiritual Companioning please contact our office.  We may be reached by email at journey@csbsju.edu or by phone 320-363-5939.  

More information about the Philosophy of Group Spiritual CompanioningFrequently Asked Questions, and a Session Format Outline are available to help you learn about spiritual companioning groups and discern if a spiritual companioning group is right for you.
