My name is Jimmy Page and I am the National Director of the FCA Health & Fitness ministry. I wanted to take this opportunity to share my personal vision for this ministry - a vision that has been and will continue to be shaped by many of you!
I have been involved in various leadership roles in the medical fitness industry for the last 18 years. And, I have operated wellness facilities affiliated with Sinai Hospital and Johns Hopkins Health System. For the past ten years, God has planted in my heart a desire and vision to reach the world for Jesus Christ through Health & Fitness.
It is our mission to transform the health of the body of Christ.
With the epidemic of obesity and diseases and health problems associated with poor health, I believe the message of real health - both spiritual and physical - is more relevant today than at any other point in our nation's history.
Jesus came to give us full life (John 10:10). Yet many of us choose not to experience the abundant life. We are made in God’s image and our health and wellbeing is the intersection of 5 dimensions – spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and relational. Jesus speaks to these 5 dimensions of our design in Mark 12:30-31 when He tells us to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength…and to love your neighbor as yourself.”
Each dimension of our life will directly affect the others. And God’s desire is that we would be whole – that our life would be full – that we would experience His presence and power in each area of our life no matter what the circumstance.
Ultimately, being healthy is only important if it results in God’s glory and if it improves our ability to love God and love others. Most of us have made repeated attempts at having a healthy life. We have made resolutions and commitments and have experienced failure time and time again. We have relied on our best effort to change. But we very rarely consider that our failure in one area may have been the result of issues in other areas. And that we may actually need God to make real changes.
Lasting change requires transformation from the inside out. We must remain connected to His presence and apply His Word. At FCA, we base everything we do on His Word and His Spirit, believing that He alone has the power to bring lasting change in all areas of life as we surrender our will to Him.
So let’s get started together on our journey to full life.
