Abstract
A field research report describing Merge, a group spiritual direction process among first year students at Ohio Northern, a United Methodist-related university. Merge sought to help emerging adults grow in faith, utilizing conversation, silence, reflection, and creative arts. Participants took part in nine weekly group sessions and a culminating retreat, during which they helped in planning for the future of Merge as a program of the religious life office at Ohio Northern. Growth was measured utilizing the Faith Maturity Scale. Merge was found to attract spiritually aware emerging adults who were seeking an outlet for spiritual growth in college.
