“Health & Healing Council” is now under the leadership of a steering team of registered nurses. We covet your prayers and input in discerning best practices for offering our congregations information and initiatives to realize God’s intention for our wellness.
Miss Barbara E. Drake
Chair, Health & Healing Council
Our Vision: To be a vessel for promoting God’s intention of wellness for all people.
Our Mission: To serve as a resource and communication link to promote physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being in the churches of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference and the communities which they serve.
Our Goals: To support the GBGM 10,000 Church Challenge. We seek ways to:
Develop a plan of activities and events to create awareness and engage churches in joining the challenge. Every church that signs up and implements activities will be designated as a Health Promoting Church and tagged on the UMC find-a-church search
Partner with churches that sign up for the challenge, identifying those in the conference that may need training and assistance in developing health ministries
Identify UMCs that are currently doing health promoting activities and highlight their work to share ideas and practices
Celebrate the 10,000 Church Challenge. Be a presence to delegates and laity, offering interactive opportunities to promote health, healing, and wellness
