Faith Activity and Nutrition


Faith, Activity, and Nutrition (FAN) was developed with and for churches to prevent and address the most common health conditions impacting congregations and communities, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and obesity. The program focuses on physical activity and healthy eating because these two behaviors are consistently shown in research to prevent and treat these health conditions.
God gave us our body and wants us to care for it. 1 Corinthians 6:20 reads, “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (NKJV).
Churches can benefit from FAN by having healthier members. Healthy members can more fully participate in church life and carry out the work of God. If you are interested in the FAN Online Training, complete an interest form today!
