sharing faith in a healthier future


Health: A Special Ministry

A health ministry is a special ministry that integrates faith and health, within a faith community. It is an integral part of the overall ministry of the church. Health ministers are many - clergy and laity - coming together to share the compassionate love and grace of Jesus Christ.

Health Ministry is not confined to physical health. A well-rounded Health Ministry Program will also address the emotional, social and spirtual health of individuals served.

Your Unique Ministry

Although there are basic similarities, each health ministry is unique. The needs and concerns of each congregation will vary depending on size, location, age, and resources available. Many churches will have Parish or Faith Community Nurses within their programs.

Health ministries fit into churches of every size and every faith community.
