Deacon & Deaconess Collin & Sheryl Nash, Ministry Leaders

Many of us living our lives as Christians zealously strive to hone our spiritual life to the highest degree, but we somehow lose sight of a crucial principle outlined in the Bible. In 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, the Apostle Paul asks:…“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” In other words, we have an obligation to work on our physical health with the same passion we pursue our spiritual well being.

That’s the mission of Shiloh’s Healthy Living Ministry.

The Healthy Living Ministry functions on the premise that we are better able to give our best effort as servants of God and in fulfilling His promise for us when we are at our healthiest. Optimal health is multidimensional – it encompasses an individual’s social, emotional, mental, and physical well-being. Our lifestyle choices and behaviors, such as engaging in consistent, moderate exercise, increasing social support, actively managing stress and consuming a diet in fiber and low in fat and cholesterol, can greatly improve one’s quality of life and help ward off chronic disease.

Like in all areas of our lives, the Lord has made provisions to help keep us on the right path. He has provided us with an “owner’s manual” with specific instructions on how to keep this intricate machine called the human body functioning at is optimum. It’s called the Bible.

In Genesis 1:29, God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the Earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.”

Shiloh’s Healthy Living Ministry not only feeds you the Word from your instructional manual, but also educates you with up-to-date information on healthy lifestyle choices and connects you to a passionate support group. It also brings you inspiring testimonies. Last but not least, the once-monthly gatherings offer a bonus most everyone can relate to: the opportunity to fellowship over a tasteful, healthy meal. We urge you to join us.

You’ll be blessed and a lot healthier for doing so.
