Our Vision

Woman providing support to students in classroom

CHHSM’s vision is a just, caring and compassionate world for all.  Uspiritus in Louisville, Ky., works to make that vision a reality for hundreds of young people.

CHHSM believes advocacy, service, healing and compassion are central to what it means to be the church in action today.

Health and human services are not mere extensions of the church, but rather at the heart of the church’s calling to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world. We serve God by serving others.

As providers of critical services to diverse people in need, we are committed to strengthening our collective impact, while welcoming into membership new ministries continually being formed by United Church of Christ  congregations to meet emerging human needs.

CHHSM is an association known for its:

Bold Vision, with a vision of care for all people.

Inspired Leaders, who inspire and support one another to address shared challenges.

Shared Values, through faith-based leadership development, collaboration, and business partnerships.

Together, we celebrate and perpetuate the longstanding heritage of health and human service ministries in the United Church of Christ.  We offer quality leadership formation opportunities that strengthen our member organizations and new ministries in formation.  We offer programs and services that strengthen our members and the missional impact of the whole church.
