North Carolinians of faith will come together to worship, promote health, share best practices, network with each other, and meet resource partners from across our state. Participants will learn what’s currently happening in the state related to health, and how health relates to our faith and will leave with a focus on how to create or move forward with their own health ministries for their congregations and community.

As you may have seen, our theme for this year’s summit is Mindful Together and that was a very intentional choice. We wanted to acknowledge the need for the mindful moments that gently hold our minds, bodies and spirits.
- We are encouraging everyone to take moments to rest, breathe and center themselves in multiple designated locations across the campus of Holy Trinity. These locations include The Labyrinth, a Meditation Garden, benches located at different places across the campus where attendees can sit, rest, think and when needed reduce sensory input, a dedicated chapel for moments of quiet and contemplation, and a patio area outside the doors of the lower floor.
- In partnership with RAFI’s Come to the Table and Farmers of Color Network we are having for the first time, a pop-up farmer’s market. Each attendee will receive a voucher to use at the farmer’s market.
