Michelle Just, president and CEO at Beatitudes Campus in Phoenix, recently was consecrated as a Diakonal Minister by the Council for Health and Human Services Ministries (CHHSM) of the United Church of Christ.

“I am honored to earn the designation of a Diakonal Minister,” says Just. “This program emphasizes the servant leadership that is the foundation of Beatitudes Campus.”

The curriculum for this distinction is administered by the CHHSM Nollau Leadership Institute, a Cleveland-based organization related to the United Church of Christ (UCC). Beatitudes Campus is a ministry of the United Church of Christ, and founded fifty years ago by Church of the Beatitudes.

CHHSM’s Nollau Leadership Institute is a yearlong program that creates opportunities for small groups of leaders to gather in person and online to learn and mentor one another as they explore how to lead faith-based health and human services organizations. Participants come together with a variety of faith traditions and occupational backgrounds.

Six Beatitudes Campus staff members are now Diakonal Ministers.
