Abstract
Teaching sustainable holistic health practices was the action-research project that involved working with a small urban black church with the goal of helping them improve their ability to make healthy lifestyle choices as well as empower them to start a “wellness” initiative that will benefit both the church and community. The participating members were given a pre- and post-assessment survey to determine the impact of the eight workshops that focused on various aspects of biblically based health and wellness living. In addition, focus was placed on having an outreach initiative that would benefit the community. A community survey was created and given out to random members of the community to assess the health needs of the community, especially looking at patterns of health-related issues that could be addressed by the church outreach program. The outcome of the research was the creation of the CCC (Clergy, Congregation and Community) Model referred to as BWell! designed to assist churches interested in beginning a health and wellness ministry.
