Welcome to the Center for Healthy Churches
We believe that local churches can and should be a source of light and life in their communities.
The Center for Healthy Churches exists to build up the church of Christ by offering hope, help, and healing to churches and clergy members in need.
Birthed out of the rich tradition of pastoral care, and informed by years of experience and success in local churches, CHC offers a wide variety of ministries and services for churches and clergy alike.
CHC Presents Interim Ministry Training
Our interim ministry training (S.T.E.P.™) is a skills-based course emphasizing the need to discern the unique DNA of the church, its context, and its compelling mission and vision for the future. It is the best training for the next generation in interim and transitional ministry. S.T.E.P.™ trained transition pastors can confidently provide an in-depth consulting/advising process based upon the Spirit’s leadership and the individual church’s needs. Join us in Nashville or Atlanta in 2022!

What Is a Consultant?
A CHC Consultant is someone who works alongside you to cultivate greater learning, insights, and help you plan for the future of your congregation. Our consultants are trained facilitators who have a demonstrated track record of successful congregational ministry. They know how to help your congregation discern and implement the steps necessary for your church to thrive.
What Your Church Can Expect
At CHC, we focus on process consulting. Our role is to help you design a path forward that maximizes local wisdom and expertise under the leadership of God’s Spirit. We don’t offer easy, ready-made answers, but compassionately guide you to explore truly sustainable possibilities.
