Thoughtful and wise coaching for ministers and churches navigating the challenges of today and opportunities of the future.
The Center for Healthy Churches offers thoughtful and wise 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 local 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, interim minister training, and many other coaching areas, 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 a wide variety of ministries and services for churches and clergy alike.

CHC presents Interim Ministry Training (IMT): the next generation in interim ministry.
An IMT-transition pastor can provide an in-depth consulting and advising process based on the Spirit’s leadership and the individual church’s needs. The Center for Healthy Churches Interim Ministry Training best guides a new generation of interim and transition pastors.
This training is based on the principles developed by Russell Crabtree in Transition Apparitions: Why Much of What We Know about Pastoral Transitions Is Wrong. Crabtree uses an evidence-based approach which shows a one-size-fits-all approach ignores the uniqueness of each congregation.
Coaching for Clergy and Congregations

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.
