Heal the Sick Program
Whole Person Health and Well-Being in the Community
To prepare, educate, and equip leaders to advance whole person health and well-being of individuals, communities, and congregations, especially those who are under-served.
Our Heal the Sick (HTS) Program works at the intersection of faith and health on a local, regional, and national level. The Heal the Sick program prepare leaders to advance whole person health and well-being of individuals, communities, and congregations, especially those who are underserved. Key components of the program include promoting faith communities’ health ministries, providing educational opportunities, catalyzing network creation, and supporting existing networks, and facilitating collaboration with community partners.
The program offers an online 22-hour, 10-week Health Minister Certificate; graduate courses (Introduction to Health Ministry and Leadership in Health Ministry); provides resources and information to help churches and communities address health concerns, share resources, and advocate for better care; and collaborates with faith-based organizations, public health, businesses, hospitals, and other groups to conduct faith and health research to better understand the impact of health ministries as well as health and wellness issues.
Our vision at CEI is "a transformed church and world that promotes communities where all people are cherished and flourish." Our mission to "equip leaders who are theologically grounded, contextually nimble, and prophetically engaged in the public square. CEI's programs enable us to do just that.
