When you are sick and tired all the time you don’t feel like doing anything and that includes helping others and accomplishing God’s purpose He has for your life. He came so we could have life and have it more abundantly but a lot of us are not able to live that abundant life because of illness and disease. The most amazing thing is that a lot of it can be prevented or at least prolonged by making better health choices. This is the encouragement and knowledge to make those choices.
What is health ministry?
Health ministry is getting out into the community, educating the public on health-related issues, encouraging health promotion so that people can make informed choices, showing the need for Jehovah-Rapha, and opening doors to share the Gospel.
Who to contact for the health ministry?
Christina Hornbeck: I have been a nurse for 28 years, working in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit for the last 17 years. My passion is helping and educating others in the community on health-related topics. My heart has been burdened to see doors open to share the Gospel with those in need of our Healer. I have had the opportunity to use my nursing knowledge in several organizations in the community such as the Free Clinic, health fairs, teaching health related classes at churches, and volunteering at community outreach events. I am really looking forward to working with others in reaching out to the community and promoting health related activities.
What does this look like?
I am planning on offering classes on a variety of health-related topics throughout the year. I can do this at the SBA office or at your church. I always incorporate scripture and God into all of my classes so this is a great opportunity to bring a friend to gain information on health and to plant seeds of faith into their lives.
