Partners in Health and Wholeness (PHW), an initiative of the North Carolina Council of Churches, holds its first clergy breakfast on health on Thursday, August 26 from 8:30-10:00 a.m. at St. James African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Zion Church in Goldsboro. The church is located at 206 South George Street, and Dr. Dwight Cannon serves as pastor.
The purpose of the PHW clergy breakfast is to: draw the connection between health and faith; illustrate the current scope of preventable health problems in North Carolina (e.g., how many people are obese or suffering from other preventable diseases in our state, how overweight and obesity affect our overall health and quality of life, etc.); and discuss opportunities for clergy to improve their health as well as the health of their congregants through PHW and other faith-based health initiatives.
The Rev. Joseph C. Brown, Sr., Presiding Elder, A.M.E. Zion, Dunn-Lillington District, is the guest speaker. Faith leaders serving in the Wayne County area or anyone generally interested in how places of worship can improve the spiritual and physical health of God’s people, please contact Willona Stallings, PHW Project Director, at 919-828-6501 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
