Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

Adventist WholeHealth Network Moving to Blue Mountain Academy

Story by Tamyra Horst

Adventist WholeHealth Network (AWHN) is not new to Pennsylvania. They have been providing resources and education to individuals, churches and organizations from their office in Reading, Pa., since 2002. Late this spring they will move their office to the Pennsylvania Conference's Blue Mountain Academy (BMA) in Hamburg, Pa., where AWHN will provide various health ministry training events, wellness camps and conferences, while offering attendees affordable overnight lodging and meals.

“This move will enable us to better fulfill our mission to train, mentor and support churches, centers of influence and schools toward wholistic (physical, mental, social and spiritual) health,” shares Rick Christman, executive director. “By moving to BMA, AWHN will save about $35,000-40,000 per year, which can be used for health ministry grants and outreach in Pennsylvania. We also look forward to training and involving BMA students in community health outreach activities.”

Upcoming Events:

Third Sundays—Join AWHN at the BMA Health Food Store for health screenings and seminars.

April 21—iServe Health Ministries Conference, sponsored by AWHN and the Pennsylvania Conference, will be held at BMA.

May 25-27—The first BMA seniors will graduate as part of the Green Cord achievement after learning Christ’s method for reaching their community through simple and practical health outreach initiatives.

July 25-29—iThrive Wellness Camp features a team of wellness coaches, physicians and massage therapists who will educate and inspire participants on how to improve their health and maintain wellness.
