Health Evangelism is a method of reaching people through health-related activities and programs that will draw community members to the local church. It can also be thought of it as community outreach or even community service, but centered around the health needs of the community.
The church can become a center for health education where community members will find informative health programs, cooking demonstrations, multi-session lifestyle programs such as diabetes reversal or depression recovery, exercise groups and more. Health clinics can also be organized to attract large numbers of community members with immediate health needs, such as vision and dental care.
We offer health evangelism training to local churches that include the following topics:
Principles of church-based health education
How to avoid confusion and error in health education and promotion
Lifestyle coaching and how to use it at the church
