The Residential Program in Spiritual Direction commenced in 2001 under the directorship of Rev Roger Sharr. The program is based on a model from the Wollaston Centre for Christian Spirituality in Perth. The program was run through St John's Ministry Centre in Morpeth NSW from 2001 until 2007 when the centre was closed.

In 2008, Suzanne Dunbar became director of the program and it moved from Morpeth to St Joseph's Conference and Spirituality Centre at Kincumber. The program has undergone some revision under Ms Dunbar's leadership and is registered as an unincorporated organisation ABN: 31 463 050 698.

It is now affiliated with Barnabas Ministries Inc. which provides oversight, support and advice on matters related to course content, program rigour and financial accountability. On successful completion of the program, participants receive a Certificate of Completion endorsed by Barnabas Ministries.
