Consulting Services


CHHSM offers its members consulting services in two ways.  First, the CHHSM staff is available to resource your organization, and secondly, members can contract with an expert in the CHHSM Consultants Network.

CHHSM Staff Consulting

While most consulting is deficit-based and problem-oriented, CHHSM focuses on strengths and possibilities.  We utilize an appreciative approach through practices that help leaders and organizations discover what they are doing right in order to build upon those strengths and better pursue their mission.

We assist members with a variety of issues, including leadership formationgovernance training, team-building, program evaluation, fund development, marketing and communications. Through our consulting services, members discover ways to:

  • Build an organizational culture rooted in a sense of vocation
  • Integrate faith-based values and business strategy
  • Establish practices that reinforce core identity and mission
  • Discern new opportunities for mission and organizational development
  • Communicate the ministry’s distinctive quality and character

To explore these options, please contact us.

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
