“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
What is the Health Ministry?
To bring the hope of Christ to all people through a growing understanding of Christian Stewardship in relation to spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and mental heath and to provide opportunities for Health Professionals to participate in Health Ministry.
The Health Ministry Team is committed to sharing our faith, promoting good health through education, and preventing and/or controlling disease through knowledge and support. The Health Ministry does not provide hands-on care, but rather directs members to the most appropriate healthcare provider and available resources.
How can I get involved in the Health Ministry?
If you are a health professional, student in a health program, or just interested in health, we would love for you to get involved!
