Columbia Theological Seminary (CTS) is where we were inspired to start the HSHC.  It is also where our organization is housed, thanks to the generosity of the seminary.   Since we are located on the seminary grounds, we have the unique opportunity to partner with CTS on a variety of different projects, events, and activities, some of which are highlighted below.

Here’s What’s Going on for the CTS Community!

Small Groups (new groups forming this fall)

This is an opportunity to consider the concept of health (the wellbeing of individuals, communities, and creation) from biblical, theological, and practical perspectives, while also joining in table fellowship (postponed for now) with others in the CTS community.

“Prepare & Share” (new groups forming this fall)

Practicing conscious eating is important for many reasons – physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing; environmental and ecological welfare; compassion for animals; resisting consumerism; or just curiosity and variety!  HSHC wants to support you, whatever your reasons, by facilitating a health-focused meal-sharing program.

Fitness, Nutrition and Wellness Coaching (available online)

We are available to help you discern, plan for, and live into the vision you have for maintaining your spiritual, physical, and emotional health in the vocation to which God has called you. While this is important at every stage, it can be particularly critical for seminarians.

Here’s what to expect:

  • Cost: first session is complimentary. Each additional session is $10.
  • Consultations usually last between 30 and 60 minutes.

Yoga, Moving in Wholeness Small Group, and so much more on the campus of Columbia Theological Seminary.


“As a second career seminarian, I came to seminary with many habits that deserved examination.  Healthy Seminarians – Healthy Church provided the opportunity to reexamine how I treat myself and how that impacts the people I am called to serve.  It provided theological groundwork for me to recognize that loving neighbor should be in balance with loving myself, rather than one overpowering the other. Finally, HSHC provided an avenue to build relationships with people who encouraged and continued the conversations we started in their Moving in Wholeness small group.”
