ADVENTIST HEALTH VICTORIA
Adventist Health is a department within the Seventh-day Adventist Church that brings lifestyle wellness initiatives to communities locally and around the world. We resource church members with programs that promote physical, mental, emotional and spiritual vitality. This Christian ethos is encapsulated in Christ’s command to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and your neighbour as yourself. (Mark 12:30,31)
