Church Sponsorship Program
As an Adventist church, you play a vital role in taking the gospel to the world. But have you considered its connection with health? Ellen G. White once wrote, “The gospel of health is to be firmly linked with the ministry of the word.”1 In response to this challenge, Weimar Center recently launched a bold new initiative called NEWSTART Global (www.newstartglobal.com). It’s perhaps the most comprehensive health evangelism solution ever. We’re seeking to reunite the medical missionary work with the ministry of the gospel in churches around the world. Mrs. White put it this way, “The medical missionary work is the gospel in illustration.”2 As more and more churches come to this realization, there is a growing need to supply them with the right tools and support for effective health evangelism.
With the creation of the NEWSTART® Lifestyle Club, we’ve begun to do just that through an innovative online approach. Consider the following:
- 80% of U.S. patients are seeking health information online.
- 66% start with an online search.3
The NEWSTART® Lifestyle Club has become the fastest growing site that introduces people to the Adventist health message. That’s because we’ve partnered with Symplur, a cutting edge healthcare consultant company that’s leveraging social media to make sure newstartclub.com stays at the top of search engine results. In addition, colporteurs, bible workers, and medical missionaries are promoting the site from door-to-door across the country in an effort to target the other 34% who start by visiting a trusted site.
The NEWSTART® Lifestyle Club is helping churches offer an abundance of free resources for web browsers seeking credible, scientifically based health information along with a physician directory, wellness tips and tools, deals, and more. In addition, churches can advertise their local seminars and bridge events online and connect with club members in their own communities.
Imagine how many people you could reach if your church was benefiting from this powerful tool! By becoming a NEWSTART® Lifestyle Club Sponsor, you’ll have access to all this and more. And for churches, it’s absolutely FREE ($175 value)!
