MissionFiT

Christian Wellness Ministry

MissionFiT is a wellness ministry that exists to get pastors Faithful in Training so they can be FiT for the mission the Lord has called them to. Our definition of “training” goes far beyond the obvious physical training, with wellness, nutrition, spiritual fitness, as well as mental and emotional. In short, the health of pastors today is in the tank and it’s affecting their ability to fulfill their calling. Only 1 in 10 make it to retirement these days. MissionFiT is a church leadership wellness program built to change these statistics.

Our FiT-losophy

The physical fitness part of our ministry focuses on total body strength. Our class model is mobility, flexibility, stability, warm-up, workout, cool down every time. We include functional movement, isometric and hypertrophy exercises, accessory work, as well as mono-structural movement in strength and metabolic conditioning fashions.

Movement can look very different person to person, based on pre-existing injuries and conditions, age, etc. Our coaches are trained and prepared to handle it all, helping people to start moving and continue progressing.

SUCCESS STORIES

“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

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

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

Tyler Crump
Tyler CrumpOut of State Director
I have battled with my weight throughout my entire life but I started focusing on my health and fitness after college. From my own weight loss journey sparked a love for health and fitness. I love working out with other people, but I also love sitting down with someone over a meal and hearing their story. I’m thankful to be the head trainer at CrossFit 77 and have been coaching group classes and personal training for 4+ years.
I grew up in a home that held Christian values but didn’t follow Christ. I started truly following Jesus while I was in college and my world has never been the same. I’ve had to unlearn a lot but praise Christ for His patience and grace.
