Promoting Healthy Congregations Assessment


Faith-based organizations want their members to be healthy physically as well as spiritually. People look to their faith communities for support in various aspects of their lives. When faith-based organizations support healthy eating, physical activity and tobacco-free lifestyles, they promote better health among their congregation members.

The purpose of the Promoting Healthy Congregations Assessment is to enable Michigan faith-based organizations to

  • Assess themselves on how well they are doing at supporting healthier lifestyles among their congregations
  • Increase their awareness of steps they can take to promote better health among their members
  • Identify and further define actions they can take that will make a difference

We welcome you to take the challenge and complete the Promoting Healthy Congregations Assessment.
