Course equips participants to facilitate Pathway 2 Wholeness Bible Study

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 20, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Faith and Health Connection announces their new Faith and Health Ambassador Course, a program designed to teach participants about the link between faith and health.  This 11-week program is taught through live weekly webinars, in conjunction with an online community with weekly forum discussions.  New sessions begin on April 16 at 7 p.m. and April 17 at 2 p.m.

Dale Fletcher, Executive Director of Faith and Health Connection said, “Most wellness programs attempt to help a person become healthier by changing their behaviors or environments — things that are on the ‘outside.’  This initiative focuses on matters of the spirit, heart and mind, which are on the ‘inside’ of a person.  When God has more of our heart, our behaviors will generally follow.”

In order for Christ followers to most effectively serve in God’s kingdom, they need to be healthy.  This training will teach participants to become more whole — spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically by helping them:

  • Learn how beliefs, thoughts and behaviors affect health
  • Identify symptoms of poorly managed stress
  • Understand roots of unhealthy and addictive behaviors
  • Understand key biblical principles for whole person health
  • Understand key dynamics of weight management, nutrition and physical activity
  • Create an action plan for their spiritual growth

In addition to helping participants experience change in their own lives, the course will also equip them to be advocates for the link between Christian faith and health, particularly by facilitating a Pathway 2 Wholeness Bible Study at their church or in their community.

The Pathway 2 Wholeness Bible Study consists of ten weekly sessions and includes small group discussions and weekly readings.  The study is aimed at creating spiritual transformation through a right relationship with God, a healthy relationship with oneself and loving relationships with others.

“The ultimate goal of these initiatives is that God is better known and more glorified by the increased fruit in the lives of the participants who have been transformed,” said Fletcher.
