Powerful Evangelism


Program Overview

Health Evangelism And Leadership Training for Him (HEALTH) is aprogram designed to educate, inspire, and equip professionals and lay people to minister to those in need with a special focus on health coaching. Individuals, churches, schools, and professional offices can effectively use health outreach as the “entering wedge” of the gospel through a multiphase plan that closely tracks Ellen White’s counsel.
