This guide is designed to help congregational leaders introduce The Conversation Project’s mission and free resources in the communities they know and serve. It is filled with examples of how diverse faith communities are encouraging their congregants to engage in thoughtful reflection and have conversations about their end-of-life care wishes with loved ones and health care providers.

Webinar Series: Bringing Advance Care Planning Conversations to Your Congregation
Congregations are ideal settings for beginning to talk about what matters most to people when it comes to making decisions about the kind of health care they want and don’t want in the face of very serious illness. For six weeks, The Conversation Project’s advisor to faith, Rosemary Lloyd, hosted a free, web-based course on how to infuse having conversations about crucial, values-centered health care decision-making into the life and work of faith communities.
