Healing & Fitness Tribe

“Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”  Acts 4:30
“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”  1 Timothy 4:8

The Healing and Fitness Tribe is responsible for providing for the physical health of all the Sojourners and staff at our facilities.  All our services, programs, and activities are also available to the public. This responsibility is tackled from two different directions: Beth Rapha oversees the providing of a state-of-the-art medical care primarily through the Gennesaret Medical Center. The other part of what the Tribe is responsible for comes through Hezekiah’s Tunnel which provides a wide range of physical and mental challenges at the facilities.   Because the Sojourners are staying right on site, the opportunity exists to develop practices and patterns for channeling energy and relieving stress that will last a lifetime.  Once a person has received and is in involved in on-going medical care, this Tribe must always be developing and implementing programs and activities to promote physical activity, proper body care, and challenges that foster creativity instead of the worldly need to compete to win.  That is one of the biggest challenges this Tribe faces.

  • Beth Rapha
