What is a Health Ministry?
A health ministry is a team within a church that is dedicated to providing opportunities to equip and motivate their congregation and community to experience whole person health through a culture of healthy living in body, mind, and spirit. Individuals involved in lay health education are members of the congregation’s health ministry team who develop and lead out in whole-person health programs which inform, motivate and minister to others. The goal of the health ministry team is to educate and motivate people to adopt healthy lifestyle changes, which will improve and sustain their quality of life. The ultimate goal of any health ministry is to equip each member to incorporate whole person health principles and experience the abundant life promised by God — in body, mind, and spirit. Congregations with health ministry teams truly become “centers” for health and wholeness as they coordinate health information and lifestyle applications within the framework of spiritual care.
