MTSO welcomes Healthy Congregations staff and offices

MTSO and Healthy Congregations Inc. entered into a mutually beneficial partnership in late 2017. The organization’s offices and much of its programming now reside on the MTSO campus.

Healthy Congregations is an interfaith organization that equips leaders for challenges of thinking more clearly about families, relationships and faith communities. Its resources and training are based on seeing all communities as living systems that incorporate thinking, feeling, responsibility and purpose.

The Healthy Congregations team develops training, education and consultation in emotional process as it relates to community and congregational systems. It provides:

  • Training for those interested in leading workshops.
  • Advanced training for those who serve as teachers of emotional process thinking and its resources.
  • Leadership development.
  • Opportunities for case studies, coaching, consultation, conversation.
  • Network for those interested and committed to making the connections between emotional process and clarity of purpose in an organization.

The relationship between Healthy Congregations and MTSO affords the school’s students, faculty and staff the opportunity to participate in Healthy Congregations events at reduced cost.

“The important work of Healthy Congregations as an ecumenical resource for leaders of faith communities aligns closely with ours,” said MTSO President Jay Rundell. “We’re excited to be hosting this group and welcoming participants in their seminars and workshops to our campus.”
