The Abundant Health: Our Promise to Children initiative seeks to engage at least 10,000 churches in the United States to develop and support healthy lifestyle choices in their communities. Global Ministries is encouraging churches to engage their neighboring communities by promoting physical activity, a healthy diet and nutrition, providing education for tobacco and drug-free living, and promoting mental health education.
The 10,000-church challenge provides an opportunity for congregations to open their doors and invite their communities in by sharing a message of healing and hope through health prevention, treatment, education and communication.
Your church can participate in these efforts to reduce preventable deaths in the United States by increasing opportunities for healthier lifestyle choices.
So far, more than 50 churches have signed up indicating their commitment to promote activities in any one or more areas of health as a practice of their congregation. Learn more about the 10,000 Church Challenge and sign up today!
