Applying to FIND



FIND has a discernment period each year for prospective students.  Discernment consists of three parts:

  • An application is completed, application fee of $175 is paid, and three letters of support from the candidate's spiritual community are received;


  • The candidate has two interviews with faculty members; and,


  • The candidate attends a discernment retreat with several faculty and others who are in discernment for the class. The discernment retreat is at Camp Allen near Navasota, Texas. For 2024, it will be July 26-27, and the cost is $125 for overnight with supper, breakfast and lunch and all materials for the event. The retreat must be attended in person.

Classes will be in person ONLY for the Class of 2027 which begins in September 2024, at Middleway Urban Monastery, 309 N. Tabor Ave., Bryan, Tx. 

Discernment is mutual in that both the director and faculty of the school and the candidate seek God's will in whether the person is being called to this ministry.


Contact us any time if you have questions or would like to begin the process.
