HSHC, along with our partners, work to improve the health of seminarians, congregations, and the world.

TESTIMONIAL

“As a theological librarian, I am aware that very little research exists on the health of seminarians which makes the work of HSHC so vital.  Bringing awareness on the importance of health in all its definitions is one reason that the John Bulow Campbell Library partners regularly with HSHC.  This partnership provides an integrated approach to helping seminarians learn and practice healthy habits during their seminary career and hopefully during their lifetime.”
