Striving for Fullness of Life: The Church's Health and Healing Ministry
Come explore and discover your congregation’s health and healing ministry with a parish nurse or a cadre of congregational health advocates trained in developing and carrying out the ministry as a pilot project
"When the church embraces its ministry to whole persons, it will become intentional in creating programs and ministries that encourage the redempton of the whole person."
This is for you if...
- You believe congregational health and healing ministry is an opportunity for individual members and the faith community as a whole to encounter the good news through a whole-life lens.
- You see health as encompassing wholeness in body and spirit. Even when we fail miserably in the ways we treat our bodies, God comes to us and transforms us.
- You share a vision of health and healing ministry as people caring for people in areas fundamental to well-being. True health embraces the goodness and richness of the life God gives.
- You see the bigger picture of God’s redeeming love for humans, from our brokenness in the Garden of Eden of Genesis to the healing resplendent in the new heaven and new earth of Revelation. Healing ministry invites us to yearn together for the healing and justice of God’s redeemed world.

Be part of a ministry that broadens our definition of health beyond the mere absence of disease to encompass our environmental, social and vocational lives. Come to the forum and be informed.

Called to preach, teach and heal
Ministry is about more than preaching and serving the sacraments. It entails the whole body of Christ as it seeks to embody the values of the gospel and to enact Christ's call to preach, teach and heal.
Creating healthy communities through Christ's healing ministry
"Our healthcare system needs to be more than about treating disease, it must create conditions and structures that allow for wholistic health.
