“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20
I know that many of you share my passion about the intersection between the Christian faith and health. You desire that people be free from their addictions and unhealthy behaviors and that they be all Christ desires for them to be.
After months of course development work, I’m very close to finishing a training program that will equip people who will called Faith and Health Ambassadors to be advocates in their churches and communities in the arena of faith and health. It’s my hope to roll out a beta version of this training early this Fall, starting in late September or early October. The course will be 12 weeks long. I’d like to have 12 people in the program. So far I have 8 individuals who have indicated they plan to participate.
Who Would Be an Ideal Participant?
- Parish Nurses/Faith Community Nurses
- Health Ministry Leaders
- Seminary Staff Members
- Personal Trainers
- Health Educators
- Life Coaches
The Purpose of the Course is as follows: The Faith and Health Ambassador training program equips people to make a difference for the Kingdom of God by living a more abundant life – which favors health and well being – and by leading participants of a ‘PathWay 2 Wholeness Bible Study’ to experience the same.
This beta course was conducted in late 2011. To learn more about this initiative please visit this link – Faith and Health Ambassador Course.
