The Health Outreach Prevention and Education (HOPE) Ministry partnership is sponsored by National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. to promote wellness through health education and screenings. National Baptist churches across the country are working in collaboration with local, state, and federal community. The Ministry partnership also works with government and health agencies to bring information and training to faith representatives on health education, health screening resources, and health promotion activities. This effort will push our convention toward being one of the healthiest faith communities in our nation.

HOPE resources include, but are not limited to:

  • Community-based participatory research ambassadors
