Our Work

Core Tenants of Our Health Ministry:

Houses of worship attendance and affiliation is an important correlate with positive health care outcomes, especially for the most vulnerable subgroups, the uninsured and chronically ill. They represent a natural reference for the community.

Our Health Ministry (OHM) helps faith-based organizations and houses of worship to strengthen their historical foundations as trusted, community-embedded ministries of health, healing, and wholeness.

Challenges:

Building a Health Ministry can be a lengthy process. Every house of worship and its surrounding community is unique. It can take several months to adopt policy, systems, and environmental changes in a faith-based setting. Additionally, crafting a strategy to equitably partner with local health systems, distribute culturally relevant materials, and drive health improvement campaigns are challenging.
