Faith in Action at Health Science & Preventive Medicine Camp

As believers, we understand that our bodies are a gift from God. But most of us haven’t really been taught that God wants us to take care of our bodies. At Health Science & Preventive Medicine Camp, you’ll explore our responsibility to use our physical wellbeing for God’s glory, and how to coach others to do the same.
