Faith-Based Settings – Strategy 3

Large faith-based organizations should institutionalize physical activity promotion programs for their employees.


  • Communicate with clergy and lay leaders regarding the importance of inclusive physical activity promotion as a component of employee wellness programs.
  • Support clerical training programs that train leaders who will be prepared to see the value of and advocate for physical activity planning in their faith-based organizations.
  • Support the promotion of physical activity programs within faith-based organizations as a worksite wellness and community health promotion activity.
  • Provide seed grants for faith-based organizations to design and implement physical activity and other health promotion initiatives.
