The spiritual path of the laity, as well as all others, is not simple or easy. There is always an opportunity for spiritual movement and growth. As a person who provides leadership for associate relationships, it is important to have an appreciation where an associate is in her/his faith development in order to minister to her/him. Understanding the flow of faith development also allows an associate leader to anticipate the needs and questions of an associate without taking it personally. This chapter is designed to address both of these elements: what is a lay/associate spirituality as compared to the traditional model and what is common faith development of people, including associates. In addition, direct applications for associate leaders will be suggested.
