HEALTH (Health Evangelism And Leadership Training for Him) is a training program specifically designed to produce effective health evangelism leaders who will take the concepts of NEWSTART® worldwide. Listen to what our graduates have to say about their experience at HEALTH!
The HEALTH program went to Southern California to serve as a part of a free clinic. The students did health education, massage and witnessing. Here is a video put together by the AMEN team – profiling their work.

(starting at minute 47)
We are planting a church
“We are going door to door to do health coaching… we had Weimar college, Weimar HEALTH program come by, and they did the amazing Health Expo…. let me tell you something its much easier to give free massages that it is to give Bible studies…
They went through the booths…
It was amazing one of the ladies from city hall came… she was so impressed that she gave us 10 minutes to talk about who we are and what we are doing, at the next city hall! We had the major meeting with us, and he wants us to bring this message all over (the city of) Patterson.
One of our cross trainers followed up on one of the health coaching leads… a reporter was there (for some reason) and asked what they were doing… they explained what they were doing, and the reporter said… I will write you a free ad – and do a front page story about you are doing… in the newspaper.
We need to change what we are doing… we are going to be blown away with what God does…
“Soon there will be no work done in ministerial lines, but medical missionary work.”
Bridges to Health
The HEALTH program was privileged to help with the initial visioning for this project, and then at the time of the event to provide health / lifestyle coaching for the 3000 people served.
Students attending HEALTH and Weimar Institute receive hands on experience in planning then assisting / leading such clinics – first for their immediate community, then around country / world.
In April of 2015 HEALTH will be in San Antonio assisting with a massive medical / dental clinic several months before the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists which will be held in that city in 2015. We hope you will consider coming to HEALTH to Go or to the full HEALTH program to be trained for these exciting outreach opportunities.
If you are an alumni of HEALTH or another health evangelism / evangelism training school (such as LIGHT, ARISE, AFCOE, SALT, NETS, Wildwood, Eden Valley), we’d love to have you assist us in San Antonio. Please watch for updates concerning this upcoming event!
