Wellstreams Application Process


Who Should Apply?

Wellstreams is open to adults who wish to discern a call to companion others on their spiritual journeys. We look for those individuals who can demonstrate the ability to reflect deeply on their own life experience and have the capacity to articulate their own theological or spiritual tradition. Many who have sought this program have had others affirm their spiritual gifts of presence and prayer.

With intentional discernment woven throughout the program, it is not necessary to know beforehand how you may put your Wellstreams learning to use it is only necessary to be open to the mystery and movement of God’s Spirit.

Accepted applicants are required to be in spiritual direction, meeting regularly (every 4–6 weeks) for the duration of the program. (If you do not have a spiritual director we can help—see our Referral Service.)
