Sacred Ground welcomes people from all walks of life. We live in challenging times with much uncertainty in our world. Much of life can seem fragmentary and without depth. People everywhere are seeking ultimate meaning and purpose. Distractions abound. How can we find God in the world today? How can we grow into God’s love for us individually and for all of creation? Having a skilled spiritual director or listening companion is crucial to helping one delve deeply into the mystery of the divine.
Sacred Ground helps people explore the meaning of their lives whether or not they have the financial ability to pay for the service. Almost half of those who come to Sacred Ground pay less then the full $70 fee. No one is turned away. This is the core value of our ministry.
We also provide partial scholarships to students in our spiritual direction certification program and keep all our fees as low as possible to be accessible to more persons.
Sacred Ground is very conscientious with its resources. Administrative overhead is less than 15% of our income and virtually all expenses and income are used for programs and services. Much of our financial support comes from our own membership community – just over half of our gifts in the 2009-2010 Fiscal Year came from our own membership. Sacred Ground members believe strongly in our ministry. Sacred Ground is registered in the State of Minnesota as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization. Our federal ID Number is 41 1868439.
As funds are available, we enhance and increase the scope and number of programs, workshops, and retreats. If you would like to make a gift to Sacred Ground to support our ministry, please click here:
