The Council for Health and Human Services (CHHSM) recently consecrated Rev. Beth Long-Higgins (left), director of outreach and mission integration, as a Diakonal Minister at a ceremony in mid-December for the Nollau Institute. After completing a year-long program focusing on leadership development, Beth earned the designation in a program for middle and upper level managers of CHHSM member agencies.

In April, two members of the United Church Homes staff attended the Cleveland-based institute — Amy Kotterman, director of hospitality services, and Cheryl Wickersham, vice president of housing services.
