Seventy-seven percent of American adults identify with a specific church affiliation (Pew Research Center, 2015). This offers support for the development of health ministry programs in church settings as a venue to offer a variety of health services in a convenient, comfortable location in the community. When thinking of implementing a health ministry program including health education and other services, it is important to spend time on planning and getting input from others. This article describes a descriptive correlational research study conducted to examine interest of church members in regards to the implementation of a health ministry program. Findings indicate a positive reaction to the implementation of a health ministry program in a church setting. Additionally, results support an interest in a variety of health promotion topics.
