Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), the North Carolina Council of Churches, the American Red Cross and Rep. Becky Carney have selected Good Shepherd Episcopal Church as one of the 150 places of worship across the state to participate in Strive to Revive.

The program aims to reduce deaths related to cardiovascular disease by providing automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) and CPR training to places of worship across North Carolina.

“Our congregation is committed to protecting the health of our members, and Strive to Revive helps us take this commitment to the next level,” said Father Walter Bryan. “With many people attending our church each week, we have the potential to save lives spiritually and physically as we and make a real difference in our community.”
