Carl Arrington

This event addresses the health disparities such as cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and cardiovascular diseases that disproportionately affect the African-American community. This experience will provide pastors and laity with the tools to design ministries that reach out to communities of color with a loving and caring Gospel.

You will learn how to:
• Start new health ministries to reach out to the community
• Create effective social marketing campaigns
• Develop the infrastructure needed to support a health ministry
• Design a responsible fiscal management policy for your health ministry
• Engage and mobilize community leaders to promote and support your ministry
• Provide cultural competence training to help service-providers work appropriately and effectively within communities of color
• Identify resources in your community to support your health ministry
• Incorporate and implement disease prevention initiatives within your health ministry

Registration Fee: TBA
