Abstract
This project addressed the question of what kind of formal, foundational education prepared and equipped congregations and their members to reconnect to their health and healing mission so they could serve the world in this capacity. The educational offering also equipped various professionals who have conviction and passion for addressing health through a whole person health perspective. Under the direction of the author, Wesley Theological Seminary offered a Health Minister Certificate which provided knowledge and pastoral skills to help people reclaim and initiate whole person health ministries.
