MTM Regional Boards

The MTM Foundation Board of Trustees has established four regional trustee boards – one each in Alabama, Western Michigan, East Tennessee, and Virginia. The regional boards work under the direction of the national board and their purpose is to help expand the awareness and ministry of MTM by supporting activities in their respective regions and by recruiting and training qualified professionals to serve as local resources for ministers needing the services of MTM.

Each regional board will sponsor “awareness” breakfasts, luncheons, or dinners to help publicize MTM and its mission and programs in that region, assist in planning and conducting Healthy Transitions Wellness Retreats for Ministers and Spouses in their regions, assist in planning educational conferences designed to help reduce the number of forced terminations, and increase funding for the expanded ministries.  MTM is dependent on volunteers who are willing to invest their time, energy, and expertise in reaching out to wounded ministers and their families. At least one member of each regional board will be a member of the MTM Foundation Board of Trustees.
