Welcome to Living Abundantly Ministries!

We create programs for church small groups that make the connection between our spiritual and physical health

Christian Wellness & America's Health

We believe that Christian fellowship found in church small groups across America is the ideal setting to address our nation's crisis of imbalance, overweight & chronic disease by helping people make and sustain positive changes in all areas of their lives -- including their physical health.

Funded by a grant from Wheat Ridge Ministries, Living Abundantly Ministries is a non-profit Christian health ministry that develops Christian wellness programs for church small groups that make the connection between the health of our spirit, body, mind and community.

Our Christian wellness programs are ecumenical and evidence-based. 

A successful study of our program in a church setting was published in the Center for Disease Control's Preventing Chronic Disease Journal showing its strong benefits for reducing risk of chronic disease, weight loss and improving well-being.

Come Alive! Our First Christian Wellness Program

We will soon publish Come Alive!, our first program in a familiar small group format.  Come Alive! is an 8-week journey to a more abundant physical and spiritual life. Throughout the fun & interactive study, participants discover spiritual practices to grow in God and practical ways to incorporate ways to incorporate healthier foods & activities into the rhythm of their daily life.  

More & more churches across all Christian denominations are seeking to support the whole health of their communities and members.  The Come Alive! Program is a simple and proven way to get started because it is delivered as a small group study that fits the rhythm of what churches already do through their small group ministries.

The Come Alive! Program has also caught the attention of cities & public health advocates seeking ecumenical, evidence-based, scalable approaches to reduce health disparities, address childhood obesity, and promote better health throughout their communities.
