Health & Wellness Ministry

Lutheran SeniorLife and the Southwestern Pennsylvania Lutheran Synod created the Health and Wellness Ministry in 2009 to serve ministers and lay leaders in their efforts to bring greater health to their congregations and communities.

Build a healthy ministry

We can provide you with the tools you need to make your ministry successful, including:

  • Parish nurse and volunteer training
  • Access to supporting information and resources
  • Experiences and ideas to aid your congregation and community

Go beyond blood pressure screenings

Holding regular blood pressure screenings is a great way to start providing a congregational health and wellness ministry. But don’t stop there! There are several aspects of whole-person health that your ministry can work to address.
