Health Evangelism Training

  • Essentials Class: This 125-hour self-paced online training course costs $200 instead of the regular $475!
  • Advanced Class: This 450-hour self-paced online course costs $600 instead of the full price of $1,499!

In addition to helping your family, neighbors, and the community with your newfound health knowledge, upon graduation one could participate in a mission opportunity with LIGHT Ministries overseas or in the US.  For information about signing up and more, contact Karen Gordon at 907-978-9053.
