Church Health Reader is…
We believe that Christians, churches and congregations are agents of change, so we highlight the meaningful ministries common within many faith communities.
We feature new ideas because we know health ministry comes about by many exciting methods.
We see faith and health as a burgeoning field, so we draw ideas from talented scholars in fields like medicine, religion and public health, and are active participants in the creation and dissemination of new knowledge.
We recognize ourselves in people like you, so we design Church Health Reader to encourage you to apply ideas and make your community a healthier place.
