The commitment to care for bodies and spirits belongs to all of us.
Local congregations create a place for people to belong, to work together in better understanding of what God asks them to do.
At Church Health, we want to see more and more congregations embrace health ministry to improve the health and wellbeing of their congregants and the broader community. You don’t need to do it alone.
There is no Church Health without the faith community. Throughout our 30-year history, congregations representing all faiths across Memphis have played an integral role in helping us extend our services and resources to those we serve.
Learn how your congregation can play a part in our ministry of hope and healing.
Pray for us.
Please keep our work and our patients in your prayers.
Join our community of faith each evening from 8:00-8:02 p.m. to pray for the healing and safety of the world, our friends and neighbors, including Church Health patients, and the brave health care teams who are treating the disease. Here are specific ways you can lift us up in prayer.
- Please lift up Church Health in prayer so that we may sustain healthy, safe health care workers who provide compassionate care and counsel for our vulnerable uninsured and underserved neighbors.
- Please lift up Church Health in prayer as we work to meet the need that we see daily across Shelby County. As we see many people lose their livelihood, financial resources become even more important to match the ever-increasing need.
- Please lift up Church Health in prayer that we may remain a safe place for our immigrant brothers and sisters— who are often overlooked, under-served, and especially vulnerable in these times– to find care and comfort.
- Please lift up Church Health in prayer so that, with their guidance, our faith community may confront this crisis with integrity and calm while thoughtfully ministering to the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of members and our partners in faith.
- Please lift up Church Health in prayer so that our community works together to keep people well and comfort those feeling isolated, fearful and ill; so that we may recover quickly and return stronger and more empathetic to the needs of others.

Health Ministry Training & Support

Designed with churches in mind, these workshops, training and events cover topics like cancer, caregiver support, men’s health, healthy parenting, grief and clergy health.
Whether your faith community is in the dreaming stage of starting a charitable clinic or desiring to expand, Church Health can help. Our Replication Workshops help people across the nation move from visions to actions. Replication workshops are held three times a year at Church Health and consist of two, half-day sessions. The workshop includes a complete tour of our facilities, a meeting with Church Health founder and CEO, Dr. Scott Morris.
Connect with faith community nurses.
Church Health is home to the Westberg Institute for Faith Community Nursing, an international leader in faith community nurse (FCN) education, consultation and research.
