Health Ministry Programs


It is God’s desire that each of us is blessed with an abundance of physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well being.

The mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Health Ministry is to encourage and enable Adventist church leaders and members not only to experience a healthful abundant life ... I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
- John 10:10 NKJV
, but also to share the divine principles for whole person health with individuals in our community, and to a world in need.  Our goal is to become a center for health and healing in which people may come to learn evidence based health information and find restoration for a hurting body, mind, or soul.

Look over our Health Ministry programs and then call for information.  All are welcome!
