FIGHT or Flight Ministry

This ministry is designed to give people hope. Chronic stress can lead to death and if there's anything that we can do to stop that, we'd like to try. 

We have designed programs and also have partnered with other health organizations to help in our endeavors so that YOU can get the best care and low or no cost!

FIGHT or Flight Ministry is always accepting donations from organizations who want to help people fight stress and live illness-free.  This is where we most need it: 

  1. Sponsoring stress-intervention program participants for the duration of the program. 
  2. Job and environmental stress: Sponsoring safety courses (i.e. CPR and first aid certifications, self-defense courses, job placement workshops, etc.)
  3. Lifestyle Management: sponsoring nutrition and fitness programming (i.e. healthy eating on a budget classes, etc.) 

This ministry helps the masses based on charitable donations from organizations. Please consider sponsoring our program participants. We want to get them well without having the stress of another financial obligation.  Your contribution can provide the resources to save someone's life! 




Stress Intervention Program

Not sure about you, but we're not looking for another online wellness app or fitness challenge. FIGHT or Flight addresses inconsistencies directly with practical tools for success. 

This is an 8-week to 6 month program that is designed to identify, confront and conquer the stressors in your life. Stress will always be around, but how you cope with it makes a world of difference. 

We tackle stress starting at a healthy lifestyle. This includes fitness, nutrition and wellness counseling sessions. We then have action plans that will last well beyond this program.

There are 2 phases, pre-diagnosis and post-diagnosis. If you have symptoms of stress (headaches, anger, clouded thinking, body aches,  etc.) and you believe that your health is declining because of it, you need to be in this program. It is a matter of life or death and we want to encourage LIFE void of stress-induced illness! Come see us.
