Our Sustainable Faith Graduates
We have had the honor of training others in the fine art of spiritual direction since 2015. Over that time, we’ve now seen dozens of students blessed as they come together in training cohorts across the Heartland of America! Here are our Sustainable Faith cohorts over the past four years! Congrats to each grad!

Read some Student Testimonials
I’ve done some of the training exercises (in spiritual direction) with Marty and Sandy Boller, and as a therapist who has done a lot of research into, as well as published some professional essays on, spirituality and spiritual transformation, I think this is one of the most transformative kinds of ministry people can participate in and lead others in.
This truly has been nothing less than totally transformational for me! I see God different and can accept how much He truly loves me. My prayer life has changed to the point that I get lost in it and know that I am better at loving God instead of looking to see how He loves me.
This has increased my capacity for self-awareness and self-compassion, while reinforcing my sense of my own gifts, talents, abilities and wisdom.
This program has rocked my world in a wonderful way. Thank you for making spiritual direction training accessible!
Marty & Sandy did a great job creating an atmosphere of trust where I felt free to learn, be vulnerable, and put myself “out there.” I’m already looking forward to Year Two.
What an intentional year! Forming new friendships with members of my cohort; plans for going further in Year Two training; casting vision for networking and professional growth; laughter, tears, and growing closer to our Amazing Father God, Savior Christ, and Holy Spirit.
This has been such an encouragement for me! Marty and Sandy have truly been difference-makers in my life!
I have been involved in men’s ministry for over 15 years. After 9 months of training I have been given a number of new tools that I have already been able to use. The best part is to see God taking men deeper in relationship with Him. I personally have become a better listener and facilitator of what God is wanting to do in these men’s lives.
This year has changed my life! I’m so thankful for Marty & Sandy. They are excellent teachers/coaches and I am excited to travel forward with them in Year Two.
