Faith-Based Settings – Strategy 1

Faith-based organizations should identify effective applications of their health ministries to promote physical activity.


  • Identify the individuals and groups who will lead implementation of physical activity promotion strategies in faith-based settings.                      
  • Identify published and other literature regarding the structure and utility of health ministries.
  • Establish, if necessary, health ministries that are consistent with the faith community’s religious beliefs to promote physical activity among the faith community.
  • Create an environment supportive of physical activity by delivering evidence-based physical activity messaging and programs that are consistent with the faith community’s religious beliefs.
  • Develop in-person, online, and other training programs to support the health ministries of diverse faith-based organizations that seek to create programs to promote physical activity.
