What is a Health Ministry?
A health ministry is a mind-body-soul approach to wellness that builds on strengths within the congregation and community. Health ministries heighten community awareness between congregational/community resources and partnerships to encourage healthy lifestyle changes, increased physical fitness and chronic disease management and/or prevention.
How does it work?
Health ministries work by promoting positive changes in behavior that are meant to improve the wellness of your members and the community. Churches, health care professionals and the community work hand-in-hand to establish or enhance existing health and wellness programs. These partnerships work best when they cater to the needs of your congregation.
