Internet's 1st Site for Integrating  Ecclesiology & Body Anatomy in order to  develop healthier churches & clergy.

Both Church Health and Clergy Health are crucial areas of study and concern for the 21st Century Church in America.

This site presents a
practical ecclesiology (doctrine of the church) for the ongoing journey toward healthy churches for a hurting world.

Clergy and their families today have more stress and far less resources for deal with it than the previous generation had. Thus, this site provides a comprehensive
Triage & ER Care page for clergy, their families, and churches.

American society is now more open to discussing
mental illness. One sign of improving congregational health is the willingness to show radical hospitality to and be in ministry with those who have a mental illness and their families. 

The foundation for this site builds upon my dissertation.
"PREACHING FOR A WHOLE PERSON RESPONSE IN DEVELOPING A HEALTHY CHURCH."
Diss. Asbury Theological Seminary, 2001.
