A Non Profit Health Ministry
Faith and Health Connection is a nonprofit Christian health ministry registered in the state of South Carolina. The ministry was founded by Dale Fletcher in 2005.
What We Do
We help transform lives by teaching people how to apply Biblical truths and principles, along with medically-sound guidelines, to achieve whole person health. We do this through:
- A content-rich website
- A strong encouraging presence on social media
- Christian Health and Wellness Coaching
- Growing and equipping disciples in our
- Leading workshops and retreats
- Advising pastors and church leadership about congregational health ministries
A Research and Evaluation Opportunity
We are actively seeking opportunities to partner with academic institutions or research-oriented individuals/organizations to conduct an evaluation of PathWay 2 Wholeness, a unique faith-based health education initiative. We believe this program merits recognition as an evidence-based intervention that improves health status including obesity, diabetes, blood pressure and other key outcomes.
If you’re interested in in learning more about the evaluation strategy and plans for this program and exploring this opportunity, please contact Dale Fletcher though the Contact Page.

Dale’s Philosophy on Whole Person Health
Our spirit, mind and body are inseparable. What we believe, what we think and how we behave affects each component of our life. Greater wholeness can be achieved when we integrate a spirit, mind, and body approach to managing the stress in our lives. Dale Fletcher is particularly fascinated by the connection between one’s physical health and their spiritual health as the research suggests that the more one’s lifestyle lines up with their spiritual beliefs the more whole and healthy that person can be.
