I was asked to be the leader for our health ministry. It’s been in place for many years but no new programs or activities over the past few years. To my knowledge the previous parish nurse made many connections in the community & partnered with businesses & non-profits to offer services to our member.
initially we put out a call to all members to get involved/volunteer & there were a handful that showed up. We set day/time each month to meet & discuss planning, budget & any other issues.
since I’ve joined the Health ministry we’ve asked members to complete a survey asking what topics they’re interested in, how they like to receive Health info & a ton of other question that we thought would help guide us in planning. We had a relatively small number of people to complete the surveys.
my city has a health assessment that pretty details what health issues are common & what populations those issues effect. I used this a guide for offering Programming since surveys didn’t work well.
I’ve reached out to other people that have been involved with the ministry to ask what they’ve done in the past....why reinvent the wheel?
There has been a ton of things we accomplished over the past couple years. I don’t have a lot of experience with this but I’m happy to answer questions.
