FaithHealthNC is a partnership between faith communities, health systems and other health care providers focused on improving health. If your congregation is ready to take the next step beyond Stephen Ministry or a parish nurse program (both wonderful things), contact with FaithHealthNC may be for you. This organization highlights the positive relationship between faith and health, the ways in which a local congregation can be supportive of individual and community health, as well as offering practical helps for a congregation to pursue new endeavors related to health. They encourage proactive mercy. FaithHealthNC wants congregations to help people maintain health. They know congregations are places of care. As places of care, congregations expanding health ministries can result in measurable improvements in quality of life. Associated with Wake Forest Baptist Health, this organization offers congregations a conversation partner regarding health and faith. It also offers tools to enhance the well-being of a community, including community-based asset mapping.
