At this time, there is no separate Health Ministries department in our Conference. Limited access to further resources can be found by contacting our people in the Ministerial / Evangelism Department.

In addition, resources are available at the web sites of other organizations. Some of these resources are listed at web sites of other local conferences such as Michigan. Others are available through the NAD Health Ministries department (a department of Seventh-day Adventist Church headquarters in North America).

See also our Supporting Ministries Page for links to a variety of health oriented organizations.

The Adventist Health Study conducted by Loma Linda University is revealing a number of interesting corolations between lifestyle habits and health outcomes.
