Church Health Resources


Listed below are some resources we believe you will find helpful as you seek to address a particular health characteristic. TM encourages you to use the resources selectively, and apply them contextually. Our greatest sources for resources are the pastors in our movement. TM encourages you to network with other pastors on this subject. May God bless your church with health.
