Holistic Wellness Ministry

Championing Longevity in Ministry is our heartbeat.
MissionFiT is a holistic wellness ministry that exists to get followers of Christ Faithful in Training so they can be FiT for the mission the Lord has laid before them. Stress is ubiquitous and follows us everywhere. Furthermore, it’s a silent killer because it affects our bodies 5 fold: physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, mentally. That means we need to learn how to battle it 5 fold and steward our health well. Our model is a small group environment, 3 phased progressional approach to 5 Fold FiTness. We have several initiatives in which we serve with this model. We aspire to be the most effective organization at training God’s followers to be good and faithful stewards of their temple. MissionFiT is an IRS approved non-profit 501c3 organization.

Our FiT Process


“I really needed that conversation today. It’s been so long
since anyone has gotten on my health and exercise and
called me out on my bad habits.”

Shane Ardner

“Thanks for your investment in me and my family and getting me back on the right track health wise. Also, huge encouragement I have officially been off any anxiety medication for almost 2 months now and I am feeling pretty good. That is in large part due to the work of the Lord and exercise and eating better to take care of my gut. So Thank You!”

Anonymous, Christian Leader Athlete

I’ve realized Health is like time and money: if you don’t manage them, they will manage you. Like most leaders, I tend to put everything else first. I now put my health and wellbeing FIRST, and realize the healthier I become, the healthier other parts of my life have become, especially my marriage.” 

Matthew Thomas, Reboot Charlotte

MissionFiT was instrumental in providing me with some very important take-aways.  My wholeness is connected to my wellness. That it’s not enough to steward my time, talent, & treasure well; but also steward my temple well.  That self-care & fitness isn’t selfish, but one of the best gifts I can give my family, church & God.

Brian Duley, Senior Pastor Nikao Church

“We need to train our bodies in such a way that we have the energy, self-control and clarity of focus so that we can be faithful to live for the Gospel as long as we are permitted by God to live. MissionFiT’s not just a wellness program, but about patterns and perspective shifts that will work to encourage your spirit, train your body for many more years of faithful ministry, and give you some camaraderie for the journey!

Nic Schrieber, Church at Charlotte Pastor

“I’ve grown in my confidence with overcoming obstacles,
which has helped me in my fight against sin.”

John Martyn, Missionary

On Friday afternoon, I took my kids to the playground. My older boys asked me to play tag with them. One month ago, I would have said “no” because I would have been too tired and too out of shape to chase them. But Friday I wanted to play. I spent 30 minutes running around the playground in an intense game of freeze tag. And it felt good (except the part where it took me 10 minutes to finally catch one of the boys). My kids are getting a better dad each week that goes by. Thank You! Thank you for being willing to encourage and challenge our ministry team to honor God with our lives!

I’ve learned that health affects spirituality.  Someone once said, many years ago, “When tiredness walks in, faith walks out.”  It is hard to have proper faith when are not healthy. Unhealthiness robs you of your faith.

Brent Watts, Abundant Life Pastor

“Six months ago, my total cholesterol triglycerides were high. I told my doctor to give me 6 months to see if I could make a difference. Exercise made all the difference, but when you add eating well & vitamins, you have the whole package & can’t help but succeed. Thanks MissionFiT for the role you played in my return to health.”

Debbie Bishop, Christian Leader Athlete

“As I become more disciplined in personal fitness, I see my overall work ethic, attitude, productivity and spiritual and mental health benefit.  God created us as whole beings, not compartmentalized beings.”

Ken Schmidt, Church at Charlotte Pastor

I began this journey out of conviction.  I have enjoyed good health and fitness in the past.  While I may not ever get back to the speed, agility, and stamina I had as an 18 year old, I can carry a lighter burden by making wise health choices and relieving stress through exercise not candy bars and Cherry Coke.

Jeremy Amick, Carmel Baptist Church Pastor
