Center for Congregational Health

The Center for Congregational Health® is a ministry of Wake Forest Baptist Health’s FaithHealth Division, designed to promote health and thriving in faith communities. We believe that healthy congregations are better equipped to serve their communities, allowing both the congregation and the community to thrive. Through our four areas of work– education, direct care, collaborative efforts, and research — the Center supports faith communities and ministry leaders and promotes congregational thriving.


Critical help at the right time—the Center offers professional guidance to congregations that are facing both challenges and opportunities. Learn about our consulting services.
