center for healthy churches
Church Consulting and Coaching
The Center for Healthy Churches offers thoughtful and wise consulting and coaching for ministers and churches navigating the challenges of today and future opportunities. We exist to build up the church of Christ by offering hope, help, and healing through coaching churches and ministers in need. Our role is to help you design a path forward that maximizes wisdom and expertise under the leadership of God’s Spirit. We believe local churches can and should be a source of light and life in their communities.
We specialize in pastoral and leadership transitions, congregational visioning, conflict management, clergy coaching, staff team cohesion, transitional minister training, outreach strategy, navigating merger and legacy, and other areas of church development, which allow the spirit of God to speak in a fresh and new way.
Birthed out of the rich tradition of pastoral care and informed by years of experience and success in local churches, CHC offers various ministries and services for churches and clergy alike.
Southern Baptist Church Discernment Guide
The laity and clergy in Southern Baptist Churches have asked us numerous times regarding guidelines to engage in a healthy process of discernment related to recent SBC actions. As a result, we prayerfully offer these thoughts and guidelines for those involved in such deliberations.
Some churches will feel no need to address the issue, as the actions of the SBC in New Orleans accurately reflect their understanding of the role of women in ministry and in leadership positions in the church.
Others will see this as a “last straw” that solidifies their movement away from the SBC. Still, others will be caught up in a dilemma imposed upon them, which can bring significant division to their congregation if not planned and carried out thoughtfully.
Coaching for Clergy and Congregations
A CHC Coach/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 the process of thoughtful and wise coaching for clergy and congregations. 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.
