Jesus taught and embodied the way of wholeness that involves growing in loving relationship with God, creation and one another until we come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of Christ that we become fully like him. Such wholeness is health and is about
a depth of relationship that is described in scripture as peace, shalom, harmony. Growing in such unity opens us to a whole new life.
Who are we and what do we do?
InterChurch Health Ministry Community brings together church members, clergy, parish nurses, caregivers, spiritual teachers and health advocates who embrace the health and healing ministry of Jesus Christ. As scripture shows, Jesus embodied wholeness and instructed his followers to keep awake, that they may be renewed (daily) in body, mind, spirit and relationships. Following this teaching, ICHM Community members support congregations and parishes that make health and healing ministry a mission for their members and the communities they serve.
What is our purpose?
With unity of purpose we offer our gifts to create a caring community that promotes whole-person health and a deeper connection with God's presence, people and creation. We organize focus groups, workshops, resources, and events that support Church Health Ministry so that people connect more deeply, live more fully, and become whole again.
