Congregations across North Carolina are living out their faith by taking the lead in promoting and pursuing good health in mind, body, and spirit.
Our current spotlight congregation is St. James Baptist Church in Greensboro. After 47 years of nursing, Lilly Foster is full of wisdom, especially when it comes to helping her congregation stay healthy. She serves as the PHW health lead for St. James Baptist Church and stays busy coordinating several different health activities at the church. Click here to read more about their efforts.
The PHW Collaborative (previously known as PHW Certification) recognizes, supports, and celebrates congregations who are committed to health and wholeness. Currently, our congregations are eating healthier church meals, promoting physical activity through exercise groups, hosting forums on mental health, teaching youth the importance of staying tobacco free, planting community gardens, and more!
Joining the PHW Collaborative is a great way to make an impact on health in your community. The application is now available.
