Health Outreach ideas

There are no shortage of programs out there on using health as an outreach ministry (list below) But can you 'an individual' do health ministry outreach? Of course.

Cooking DVD's. This a VERY EASY way to do outreach. The Vegan Vegetarian Cooking School - allows you to use their DVD's if you purchase the Sharing Guide as a DVD ministry. Take one DVD each week to a friends home or invite them to your house and offer samples while you show the DVD. Great way to build friendships.

I highly encourage you to read the Ministry of Healing. NOTE what God puts the emphasis on in regards to health? THE MIND. I highly encourage you to be sure any health outreach you do includes this very important aspect of health. Diet is only a small portion of the health message and even diet is about keeping the mind clear and the body ready for service. The motivation is to use the temple of the Holy Spirit in service.

"We have come to a time when every member of the church should take hold of medical missionary work... Teach the people that they can act as God's helping hand, by co-operating with the Master Worker in restoring physical and spiritual health. This work bears the signature of Heaven, and will open doors for the entrance of other precious truths. There is room for all to labor who will take hold of this work intelligently." {ChS 135}

 

Practical Ideas for Health Outreach

Health Luncheons. This is how the Vegan Vegetarian Cooking School got started. Make a simple and easy meal (in front of your friends and neighbors) while discussing health. For health topics and ideas visit here. Higher Path has an easy course on how to put on your own cooking school visit here for details.


Visit friends/family
who are sick or in the hospital and insist you help them. You can offer to clean their house or just show up with a meal! People don't like to ask for help and will usually say no if you ask. So don't, just show up pail in hand and say "I'm here to wash your floor". (Use your judgment. If the person has a very private nature they could be offended so be careful how you do this!)

Do a DVD ministry - In your own home or share each week with someone. Be sure to schedule this and have set pick up times or viewing times to keep things moving. Some options for DVD ministry:
