Welcome to the PHW Collaborative. As our name states, we want to partner with faith communities as they seek to live more healthy, whole, abundant lives. We have proudly done this for years through the previously named PHW Certification program and now our PHW Collaborative program. The congregations that have participated have done and are doing amazing work. We also facilitate connections and relationships between our congregations to share wisdom, provide support, and build a community around health and wholeness. Instead of only rewarding more activities, we want to recognize depth and sustainability, and the good work that congregations of all sizes are doing not only to promote health, but to live it out in their communities. Will you join us?

PHW Application Changes
Attention: In order to make the application process more efficient, we have updated our application. You will no longer be able to save and come back to the application. We highly recommend you save your answers on a separate document as you fill out the application so that you do not lose your responses if the application closes for any reason. We also recommend you print this document to prepare your responses BEFORE entering them on this form. Thank you for your cooperation!
