Register Now for CHHSM Diakonal Ministers Retreat

CHHSM announced today (Jan. 10) that the second annual Diakonal Ministers Reunion Retreat will be held March 4, 2019, at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago. The reunion is a one-day event prior to the opening of CHHSM’s Annual Gathering.

The retreat is designed to reconnect past participants of the Transformational Leadership Program, the Faith Based Leadership Institute and the Nollau Leadership Institute. The reunion workshop will help Diakonal Ministers re-focus on the “why” of their work and will also emphasize the natural congruency between leadership and spirituality.

The reunion retreat also will include built-in time for socializing and reconnecting, as well as an opportunity to share the tie-in between vocational journeys and participation in CHHSM’s servant leadership programs.

Led by Peggy Mullan, current Nollau faculty member and former CEO of Beatitudes Campus, the retreat will emphasize the intersection between spirituality and leadership, including the importance of incorporating sabbath time into day-to-day life – at work and at home.

The cost is $100/person. Some scholarship funds are available for those who need support. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation, room and meals. Registration is required and is limited to 25 participants.

Download the registration form. The form can be filled in by hand or by using Acrobat on your desktop computer.

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
