Community Health Evangelism—A Wholistic Approach to Outreach
Learn and apply how Jesus taught us to address the physical and spiritual needs of people as an integrated whole.

How can we love God with all our mind, body, spirit, and strength unless we are healthy in all areas? This training addresses the root causes of poverty, disease, and spiritual darkness—equipping leaders to share the Gospel and mobilize community action both locally and globally.
