Faith communities are looking for assistance in meeting the increasingly complex challenges of mission, ministry and congregational life. The programmatic, cookie-cutter answers once offered by denominations and traditional consultants are now often inadequate to meet these challenges. The need is growing for consultants who can provide more personalized, context-specific help to faith communities.

To meet this growing need for qualified consultants, the Center for Congregational Health is offering a process to train and develop consultants to work with faith communities. The training consists of a 4-day classroom experience, followed by individual fieldwork and participation in a series of teleconferences.


The dates for the class are October 16 – 19, 2023. The lab will begin at 10 am on Monday and conclude Friday by 5 pm.  The training will be held at Hayes Barton Baptist Church, 1800 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, NC  27608.

Costs for training:

  • Standard: $1,995
  • This event is partially underwritten by a grant.  The cost of this training is $500.

Please note: a quality learning experience is dependent upon a minimum number of active participants. The Center reserves the right to cancel any training event that does not reach a minimum of 10. Please take this into consideration when making travel arrangements.
