The Council for Health and Human Service Ministries (CHHSM) is committed to advancing the work of all health and human service ministries of the United Church of Christ in creating a just, caring and compassionate world.

The Institute builds upon CHHSM’s nearly 20 years of formal leadership training that began with the Transformational Leadership Program and continued with the ecumenical Faith-Based Leadership Institute. Led by a core team of four faculty members, the Nollau Institute draws upon the best in adult education and leadership training, grounded in a fundamental appreciation of faith heritage and spiritual formation.

Participants help design their program, assist in the facilitation of sessions, and mentor each other. As spiritual formation, the program invites participants into certain practices and disciplines in the context of a community of leaders who encourage and hold each participant accountable. The Institute is open to leaders from CHHSM ministries and partnering organizations, such as colleges, seminaries, conferences and other institutions related to the United Church of Christ.
