The Center for Christian Spirituality
The Center for Christian Spirituality is an intentional ministry of spiritual formation and contemplative life. The Center exists to companion with persons and congregations by providing experiential resources for the spiritual journey.

We believe that the life-journey of each person involves living into the fullness of our God-created selves. We want to help spiritual seekers grow as the persons God created us to be.

This journey of exploration and growth entails an inward dimension in which we become more and more aware of God, self, others, and the world. Then it entails an outward dimension as we are sent into the world as salt and light, participating with God to love, care for, and embody Christ in the world (Gal. 2:19 – 20).

Micah 6:8 summarizes our intention: “What the Lord wants from us is this, only this: to do what is right to all people, to live constantly in intimate love and to walk in humble communion with our God.”

To assist persons and congregations on this journey, The Center for Christian Spirituality offers a variety of opportunities for prayer and growth. Contemplative worship, classes in spiritual formation, spiritual direction, contemplative prayer groups, spiritual retreats, and pilgrimages are all offered to the church and community to assist in deepening the lives of persons in God.

The Center for Christian Spirituality is a ministry of Chapelwood United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. Jerry Webber directs this ministry with the assistance of Nancy Sterling.

On Wednesday nights throughout the year, Jerry Webber offers classes on contemplative living. You can access the web cast and archived classes by copying this URL into your browser:
