This program, designed by Rev. Larry Williams, began in 2002 under the umbrella of The Center for Congregational Health. Larry co-led the groups until his recent retirement. Sister Joanna Walsh, FcJ., the other co-leader, recently accepted a call by her order to London, England. A change in leadership at The Center for Congregational Health brought a change in relationship with PSGP. Many of the more than seventy pastors, men and women from Baptist, Presbyterian, Moravian, Lutheran, Methodist, Disciples of Christ, and Church of Christ, who have participated in the program felt strongly that it should continue. They established a memorandum of understanding with CBFNC for the management of funds and promotion. Following a discernment prayer retreat by select group of alumni, David Whiteman and Sister Joanna were called to leadership in 2013. In 2014, Sarah Friday Peters joined the program as co-director. Sarah's leadership was significant toward the future of PSG program and the receipt of our first educational grant. In 2016, the PSG Program welcomed Sister Evelyn Craig, IHM, as Co-Director.
