Improving Clergy Health

Improving Clergy Health

With a $12 million grant from The Duke Endowment, the Duke Clergy Health Initiative is helping clergy tend to their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. The program is strengthening United Methodist churches by helping pastors take care of themselves — so they can take care of their congregations. The Duke Clergy Health Initiative gives North Carolina pastors and elders tools for managing stress, living a healthy life and finding spiritual renewal.
