"The health of our ministers is an issue we need to take seriously. Stress, lack of exercise, and poor eating habits affect more than their personal health. It affects their ability to do the work God has called them to do."

Pastors 
listen up!

As cited in GuideStone magazine, a recently released study on obesity for the America's Health Rankings (AHR), 34% of Americans are obese. The US Department of Health and Human Services states that 60% of Americans are carrying unhealthy amounts of weight.

Pastors
lighten up!

According to CNNMoney.com, Ministers of Music and Pastors are listed as the fifth and tenth most stressful jobs. It has been stated that preaching is the third-worst profession for heart attacks.

Pastors
lift up!

Leaders lead. Lead your congregation into a healthy, God-honoring lifestyle. In the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, a 2006 study found church members tend to be more overweight than the general population. 

"Dear Friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well."

A Story of Inspiration

A son asked his father, "Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?" The father who, despite having a heart condition, says "Yes". They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons. The father always saying "Yes" to his son's request of going through the race together. One day, the son asked his fater, "Dad, let's join the Ironman together.

To which, his father said "Yes".

For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.
