Welcome to Our Website

We are so happy that you have stopped by the website for The Center for Faith and Community Health Transformation! We hope that you will find many resources here that support the work you are doing to promote the health and well-being of our communities. This is also a gathering place for the faith and health movement.  Post your events, find others who are doing similar work, connect through the faith and health community of practice and let us know if there are resources you’d like us to add or link to.

Nexus is our Community of Practice Gathering Spot–a place where you can keep up with what is happening in faith and health work in the region and share what you are doing with others…all in one place.

There are 3 things you can do through Nexus:

  1. Explore Upcoming Events on our Calendar…and upload your own events that you want others to know about;
  2. Use the Directory to find others who are doing work on a similar topic or in your neighborhood.  You can also post information about your own organization so that others can find you;
  3. Participate in Forum discussions and networks that are happening around faith and health work in the region.

You can access all these features without joining Nexus, but when you join, there is more you can see and do. Joining is easy. Just create a user name and password and you’re up and running!

If you have questions or need help, please contact Kirsten at or 630-929-6107.
