LifeStart Health Training Weekend

The LifeStart Health Training Weekend is designed especially for health ministries and personal ministries leaders, Bible workers, and colporteurs within a Seventh-day Adventist conference or union to come together for a weekend of inspiration and training. Participants will gain an understanding of the foundational philosophy, attitudes, and skills of the LifeStart Health paradigm within the context of comprehensive health ministry and gospel-medical evangelism.

The schedule below is tentative and can be adjusted based on the needs of individual groups. Each weekend training is typically held at a rural-based group retreat facility or hosted by a local area church and may include:

  1. Lodging
  2. Meals
  3. Handout materials
  4. LifeStart Health T-shirt and water bottle
  5. Additional resources for sale

The cost to attend the weekend training averages $375 per individual or $325 each for couples. In order to reduce this price, the training weekend may be subsidized by the conference/union and the OMS Grant Program.

In preparation for the training weekend, it is important to

  1. Make the request at least three to six months in advance
  2. Obtain conference/union support and financial backing
  3. Secure the venue
  4. Advertise throughout the conference/union letting people know when and where the event will take place
