Men's Spirituality Initiative

Underwriting support from:

DCM now offers several men’s spirituality programs. These programs originated in response to men’s requests for opportunities to work on their spirituality in the company of other men. This initiative is not intended to negate or ignore the need for men and women to work together toward spiritual development. It does, however, offer a specific focus on a participant’s life experience and needs, similar to programs we offer based on generation, life stages and transitions. Below are offerings for men of all faiths and cultures. If you have questions or would like additional information, please call the DCM front desk at 616.454.1241 (Option 5). We welcome your inquiries.
