A Summer Sabbatical

Healthy Congregations will be doing some space renovations during July and August. We will be taking a material ordering and shipping sabbatical for the summer months.

If you need materials for the Summer or early Fall, please make sure those orders are in to our office by June 30.

No material sales will be accepted again until September 1.

What will still be active: 

Registrations – You will still be able to register for events, like the 2017-18 Healthy Leadership Series, through the Sabbatical.

Memberships – You will still be able to both register as a member as well as access the membership portal on the website.

Contacting the Office – While there will be no one answering the phones, you will still be able to contact the office through email (office@healthycongregations.com) and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

What is Healthy Congregations?

Healthy Congregations is an ecumenical and interfaith organization that takes seriously the times that we live in and the challenges of thinking more clearly about families, congregations, and leadership. Healthy Congregations, Inc. offers resources and training that are based on a view of life that looks at communities as living systems that incorporate thinking, feeling, responsibility, and purpose.

Making use of the contributions of leaders in the field of Bowen family systems theory and congregational life, Healthy Congregations, Inc. has created educational resources and leadership development material designed with the purpose of encouraging healthier, clearer and deeper individual and community life.


The purpose of Healthy Congregations, Inc. is to develop training, education, and consultation in emotional process as it relates to community and congregational systems.

  • 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
