“Be Well . . . Serve Well” is not just an expression, it’s at the core of healthy ministries. Being good stewards of our health and the dollars spent on health care while at the same time cultivating an environment attentive to the well-being of church workers is challenging. This session will examine the current health status of LCMS church workers; the costs associated with providing health care; and what best practices are in place – or soon will be – to assist church workers in their efforts to be well. Most importantly, you will leave this conference armed and ready to make a difference within your organization.
