Congregational Resources

The Center for Health’s focus on improving denominational health reflects the Wesleyan belief that good health is a congregational endeavor. Healthy churches and congregations foster healthy clergy and church leaders—and vice versa. Congregational resources can enable parishioners to successfully carry out vital mission and ministry, while creating a healthy environment for work and worship.

Consider using the following resources for help creating a healthy work and worship environment for pastors and parishioners alike. A congregation plays a key role in encouraging clergy and lay leaders to take time for self-care. The Center for Health wishes you a healthy congregational journey!

Pastor/Staff-Parish Relations Committees

The Pastor/Staff-Parish Relations Committee (P/SPRC) is in a unique position to support the health and well-being of their pastor/s, and thereby also support the mission and ministry of the congregation. The following resource provides practical suggestions and a process for constructive dialogue.
