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.
Our First Christian Wellness Program
We are finalizing the conversion of our first program into a familiar format for small groups in preparation for launch in early 2014. We anticipate that this program will be of great interest to individuals, leaders of small groups, and church leaders across all Christian denominations.
We've also received strong interest in this faith-based community health approach from cities and public health advocates seeking evidence-based and scalable approaches to reduce health disparities, address childhood obesity, and promote better health throughout their communities.

Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. ~ 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
