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.

Dates:  The dates for the in-person class are October 28 – 31, 2024. The lab will begin at 10 am on Monday (9 am T, W, Th) and conclude Thursday by 5 pm.  The training will be held in the Charlotte, NC area.

Costs for training:

  • Standard: $1950
  • This event is partially underwritten by a grant.  The cost of this training is $1200.

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.

(Registration for this course will be live by August 1.)
