So you’ve got some programs going or maybe you want your church family to learn more. Below is a list of resources you can use for sharing or getting more education on various topics. Some of these are videos and some are PDF downloads. You can email them, share on Facebook, or print them out.
- Pathway to Health Check List Postcard 1
- Pathway to Health Check List Postcard 2
- DVD’s for sharing or running simple DVD programs (see list part way through the page)
- Recipes & Health Information — Over a 1000 free recipes and 12 cookbooks for free download at www.bodymindhealthcoach.com email Angela Poch and she’ll give you permission to print or photocopy the cookbooks that you find on her website as much as you like!)
- A great resource is Balanced Living by Hope Source who has 24 glow style tracts on health you can use like a “Bible Study” series, but on health. You can also use these tracts just like you would GLOW tracts. Visit Hope Source to view these tracts and their other health resources like their 8 health bullitens, and more.
- Marketing Resources – newsletters, ideas, and more.
Please also check out our Facebook Page as we regularly post videos on health and wellness plus recipes and plant based cooking.
MARKETING IDEAS, EXPOS, NEWSLETTERS, AND MORE
Building a contact list on is the first and most important step for all kinds of outreach. But there are some special and easy ways for those doing health outreach. The ideas below can be used at any of your current programs like evangelistic series, Christmas concerts, music concerts, etc. And you can also use them at expos (learn more about doing a food expo below), farmers markets, etc.:
- Use surveys – in addition to setting these out on a table you can be more proactive with them. Go door to door, do a mail out survey card, or ask a Bible worker to include health programs on their survey. See below for a survey you can edit. Also check out the pathway to health postcard and more under Resources for Sharing.
- Draws – offer a draw with a cookbook or video for a prize.
- Farmers Markets & Food Expos – many small towns in BC are doing farmers markets. Those attending a farmer’s market are generally a little more open to health, since they are trying to buy local, fresh foods. Get a booth and offer some free fresh water, have a draw for a FREE cookbook/video, etc. to collect names (see above). You can even get water bottle labels and put a lovely health message and contact info on it OR use it to advertise for an upcoming event. Hand out tracts on health (like the GLOW or Better Living tracts from the ABC). Give away bookmarkers or postcards on health.
Many of the programs we’ve shared have their own marketing materials as well.
