Faith community nursing and health ministry programs in congregations have increasingly been recognized as having a significant impact on the health and well-being of individuals. Based on a case study in Omaha, Nebraska, Transforming Lives: Health Initiatives in Faith Communities documents how nurses and health ministers touch and transform in multiple ways the lives of the recipients of their services and the participants in activities they organize. It argues that much of their success is due to their ability to collaborate with each other, with the leadership in congregations, and with health systems; that nurses' and health ministers' understanding of public health is broad in scope and application; and that faith community nurses are the core and heart of this ministry. Roedlach contends that the ability of nurses and health ministers to create relationships with clients and participants is the main factor in how they touch and transform their lives. Considering the increased recognition of the value of faith community nursing and health ministries, these programs have the potential to become significant partners with health systems and governments in providing health services to communities.
