Health Online Program

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. In the HEALTH program, we show you how.

The online HEALTH program was designed for the individual who cannot attend the on-site program. With ample practical opportunities and direct contact with tutors and lecturers, the on-site program is superior than anything that could be provided virtually. However, an online program is ideal for those who have busy schedules, full time jobs or who cannot afford to come to HEALTH.

Instead of live lectures, our online students have access to pre-recorded classes, online activities, quizzes and discussion boards. The practical aspects of the program will be covered by an internship, monitored by an online advisor. Online students taking the HEALTH program for credit are also required to complete the HEALTH Internship Program (more information in the bulletin) in order to complete the credit hours necessary.
