About H.O.P.E.

The National Baptist Congress Health Outreach and Prevention Education (H.O.P.E.) Initiative is a collaborative effort of National Baptist churches, medical professionals, and health related organizations committed to health outreach and prevention education (H.O.P.E.).

Vision. We see a day when all National Baptist churches will have vibrant health and wellness ministries resulting in members being good stewards of their health and wellness.

Mission. We will achieve this vision by reaching out across the depth and breadth of our denomination to educate and inspire our fellow National Baptists to commit to healthier lifestyles through

  • health and wellness education,
  • referral sources and collateral material, and
  • facilitators and resource persons.

The H.O.P.E. Challenge. We want to make the NBC, USA, Inc. the healthiest major denomination in America over the next ten years.
