Lifestyle Coaching Leaders

Health ministry teams and health promoters introduce Lifestyle Coaching. A health program, created to help people to make lifestyle changes to lower their health risks and improve their health. Changing a health habit is not an easy process. The challenges of everyday life and the power of long-term habits make it difficult for people to implement the information shared. Lifestyle Coaching uses biblical principles to provide personalized support that can cut through common barriers to lifestyle change.
