CHHSM Members Eligible for Continuing Education Grants

CHHSM members are now eligible for continuing education (CE) grants from the Brown Endowment Fund for Pastoral Scholarships.

Any UCC-related institution may now apply for a grant to help offset the cost of hosting a CE event. CHHSM members can apply for a grant from the Brown Endowment Fund for Pastoral Scholarships if the proposed CE event is targeted toward helping five or more authorized ministers learn together how to strengthen the practice of ministry.

Grants ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 are available. Applications for requests are due May 1. Applications will be considered three times per year.

CHHSM Board and Staff are grieved to learn of the death of our friend and colleague, Greg Watson, who died in October 2022. Greg was vice president of operations for Embrace Living Communities, based in Oak Brook, Ill.Greg was a graduate of CHHSM’s Nollau Leadership Institute, class of 2018-2019, and was consecrated as a Diakonal Minister during our 2019 Annual Gathering in Chicago. In an article about his class in June 2018 — not long after the group’s first retreat — Greg said, “The best part is not only beginning the process of clarifying your calling; but also, understanding and accepting one’s personal strength. Recognition of one’s ‘true' self enables us to serve from a place of wholeness.”Greg also served on the CHHSM Board of Directors, and was a beloved friend and colleague to many in the CHHSM family. Embrace Living stated on its website, “Greg was an outstanding servant leader for 17 years at Embrace Living Communities. He will be greatly missed.”CHHSM sends its prayers and love to Greg’s friends, family, and Embrace Living colleagues. ... See MoreSee Less
