CHURCH HEALTH SERVICES


Nearly 70% of U.S. churches provide direct health services and 65% provide educational health programs, according to the National Council of Churches (NCC) USA Congregational Health Survey. Only 6.4% offer no programs of any kind in health care ministries. The congregations surveyed have an average of 13.07 health-related activities. 57% host health events such as blood donor drives or health fairs and 51% offer direct financial support to individuals who need help paying medical bills. A January Beliefnet poll found 78% of evangelicals or born-again Christians say improving access to health care is the "most" or "very" important.
