Who is PHW?
Partners in Health and Wholeness is an initiative of the North Carolina Council of Churches that works to bridge the issues of faith, health, and justice. We seek to accomplish this by partnering with faith communities in N.C. to fund and support their health initiatives through The PHW Collaborative. We also offer an array of events and resources to support our partners and anyone who is looking for information in our focus areas.
Health as a Faith Issue
We believe all people are loved by God and that God cares about the wholeness of humanity: mind, body, and spirit. By empowering faith communities to improve their health and well-being, we hope to improve the health outcomes of people across the state. This is holy work that saves lives.
“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, just as it is well with your soul.” -3 John 2
If you represent a worshipping faith community in North Carolina and are interested in partnering with us, please proceed to The PHW Collaborative page. If you are an individual who is interested in the intersection of faith and health, please join one of our upcoming events. If you have any questions or need assistance in getting started, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Work is Making a Difference
We really appreciate the work of the North Carolina Council of Churches. We are so elated to be a part of that body and we really thank God for the work of this Partners in Health and Wholeness branch of the NCCC. There is work all over North Carolina to be done, we just made a small dent in our community.

We are overjoyed with the collaborative efforts within the Partners in Health and Wholeness Collaborative. Jessica Stokes and Elizabeth Brewington will join us in our mental health Deep Dive conversations. Breaking open the Word, I believe, is most effective and meaningful within community. Something happens when two or more are gathered together in honest, respectful, caring relationships that seek the truth.

I want to thank the North Carolina Council of Churches and the Partners in Health and Wholeness team for being so kind to me. God has blessed us because of the mini-grants we were granted over these years and we were able to bless the community and show God’s love through this project.
