Organization  Information

Health Ministry
Embracing Health, Wholeness and Sense of Well-Being
Pursuing good health is a personal journey. One’s sense of wellbeing goes beyond physical health to include emotional, mental, and relational health. Wholeness exists when every aspect of life is in balance; body, mind, and spirit. Many draw strength through their personal relationship with God, spiritual practices, religious beliefs, fellowship and desire to serve others. To become a Health Minister or to learn how you can start a health ministry in your congregation, contact the office at 816.833.1000, extension 1262 or email HMA@cofchrist.org. Consultation and training can be arranged.

History of Organization

Doctors, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, dieticians, and other health professionals began professional organizations in the Community of Christ during the 1960's and 1970's. These organizations were active around the world with mother-child centers, health teams, nurse recruitment, and many other activities. In 2002 these organizations joined forces with a renewed focus to promote health in our congregations, our communities, and with our global neighbors. With the new name of Health Ministries Association, membership was opened to not only health professionals, but anyone interested in health and wholeness of individuals, families, congregations, or communities.
