Progoff Ministry Committee

Ministers of different faiths recognize the importance of the Progoff TM methodology as a tool for spiritual growth. Many of our leaders are ministers while others regularly sponsor our program at their institution.

The Progoff Ministry Committee (PMC), comprised of ministers and related professionals of different faiths, provides policy guidance to Dialogue House in designing and providing programs for ministers and related professionals in their professional and spiritual development.
