Medical Assessment For Faith Leaders

An hour with a doctor sympathetic to your faith and leadership role, to review your health in body, mind and spirit.


Looking after a faith community isn’t a 9-to-5 job. It’s a vocation. And this often causes a leader to care for others at the expense of themself.

If they neglect their health for too long, they risk becoming emotionally, physically and spiritually drained, and unwell. As a result, their vocation can suffer, and they may even have to stop work altogether. We see this time and again in our work. 

This medical assessment is an opportunity for a leader of any faith to meet at least once every two years with a doctor who is well versed in what it means to live out a vocation, in order to explore their physical, mental and spiritual health.

As well as a full examination and standard set of blood tests, the doctor will discuss with the individual their spiritual life, relationships, and work rhythms, and they’ll create a report with some simple, but important recommendations. 

The aim: to prevent problems before they arise, to treat emerging issues in a timely way, to help the individual model healthy self-care to their community, and to ensure that they can truly thrive as they serve both their faith and community. 


📍 Venue: Online, or in-person in London or Nairobi

⏰ Duration: 1 hour

👥 Suitable for: Any faith leader keen to look after their own personal wellbeing

“The process was brilliant from start to finish – excellent booking, questionnaire and communication.  … I felt very safe and able to be completely honest.  There was no sense of being rushed, but it was also efficient.  We covered everything I wanted to discuss.  I really valued the prayer as well.
