The Health Ministry Department of the Mamre S. D. A. Church is integral to the church and the community. It is considered to be the right arm of the gospel. Mamre's Health Ministry Department is committed to educating its members and the community; on the value of having premium health, by focusing on prevention, restoration and follow up programs. With the assistance of the Wild Wood School of Medical Missionaries, the ministry has taught the eight laws of health given by God: Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Air, Rest, Temperance and Trust in God.
Every second Sabbath of each month the Health Ministry, presents health education: "Know your numbers" and talks on topics such as asthma, diabetes, nutrition, heart disease and hypertension and obesity.
