How Can My Congregation Help?
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 us each Thursday at noon in the Church Health Chapel as we pray for everyone in the Church Health community, including patients, supporters and those who need our help.
Shop our resources.
Church Health offers a variety of health ministry resources, including the award-winning quarterly magazine Church Health Reader. Whether your faith community already has a health ministry or you’d like to form one, our variety of books, devotionals, magazines and flyers can help you promote healthy bodies and spirits in your faith community.
Make a gift.
Through the generous support of faith communities and organizations, we provide health and prevention services to thousands of hardworking people in Shelby County who lack access to health insurance.
Start a health ministry.
For more than 30 years, Church Health has helped create and expand health ministries in faith communities throughout Shelby County and the US.
Health Ministry Training & Support
Our Faith Community Outreach team offers a variety of trainings to help you launch or enhance your congregational health ministry. Designed with churches in mind, these workshops, training and events cover topics like cancer, caregiving 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. The Westberg Institute sponsors various activities as an extension of its mission to serve FCN’s locally, nationally and internationally.
Volunteer with us.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of Church Health. We’re able to best serve those in-need because of the service provided by congregations like yours that are connected to our mission of hope and healing.
