Health Ministry

Providing tools and support to create loving friendships and improve quality of life. Bringing hope and healing to BC in unity with the body of Christ. Reaching souls for Jesus using the Right Arm of the Gospel.

Our goal for BC: “EVERY CHURCH A CENTER FOR HEALTH, 
HEALING AND WHOLENESS IN THE COMMUNITY”   “It was in love that our heavenly Father sent the light of health reform…”  {CG 460.5}   

The BC Conference Health Committee is here to help you.  Request to join our closed Facebook group to interact with other Health Ministry leaders for advice and encouragement. We encourage you to also like our Facebook Page, which is a great tool to share with anyone. And easy address to share this webpage: www.AdventistHealthBC.ca

Some think of health outreach as a side program that complements ‘real’ evangelism, but God views it differently.   

Health evangelism is not about convincing people to give up meat or exercise more or compete with alternative health gurus. It is a comprehensive plan to restore souls to a relationship with their Savior by offering hope and healing.  “It is of little use to try to reform others by attacking what we may regard as wrong habits. Such effort often results in more harm than good. In His (Jesus) talk with the Samaritan woman, instead of disparaging Jacob’s well, Christ presented something better. ‘If thou knewest the gift of God,’ He said, ‘and who it is that saith to thee, Give Me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee living water.’ John 4:10…This is an illustration of the way in which we are to work. We must offer men something better than that which they possess, even the peace of Christ, which passeth all understanding.”  {MH 156, 157}

It’s important to schedule regular programs.  We understand some churches are small with limited resources, and that’s ok.  We have some simple and easy program ideas for you under Resources & Programs for Health Leaders.
