More than ever, the world needs prophetic voices. Unfortunately, organizations that offer formation and support for emerging prophetic leaders are rare.
The Center for Prophetic Imagination exists to nurture prophetic witness. And one of the ways we do this is through our two year Certificate in Prophetic Spirituality
The emphasis of our Certificate in Prophetic Spirituality is the work of prophetic ministry–that work that exists at the intersection of deep spirituality and radical praxis.
Our program has been designed with two complimentary constituencies in mind: faith leaders who long to go deeper into the practices of prophetic action and activists who want to anchor their work in deep spiritual vitality.
Our program draws upon the wisdom of spiritual directors and activists, scholars and storytellers, wilderness guides and urban artists.
The five core intensives of our two year certificate draw upon a significant time in the life of Jesus:
- Jesus in the wilderness (intensive one)
- Jesus in the countryside as he heals the sick and casts out demons (intensive two)
- Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration (intensive three)
- Jesus in the Temple (intensive four)
- Jesus’ death and resurrection (intensive five)
Two online courses supplement these intensives with deeper study in the history of radical Christian spirituality as well as the nature of the oppression with which we struggle.
Together, we will embark on a journey of transformation that will re-shape our way of seeing and engaging the world so that, like the prophets, we might become people of action who are deeply rooted in the presence of God.
