Brevard Church Hosts ‘Performance Boost 30’ Journey to Better Health
The Brevard, N.C., Church collaborated with David DeRose, M.D., of Timeless Healing Insights to host “Performance Boost 30,” inspired by his book The Methuselah Factor, a reference to healthy blood fluidity. Thirty-four individuals enrolled to receive daily email links from Timeless Healing Insights, leading them to six- to seven-minute videos presenting fresh health tips and challenges from DeRose. The start date was synchronized to ensure that everyone received the video link on the same day.
With the assistance of Hongjae Kim, M.D., a member of Fairview Church and an internal medicine hospitalist at AdventHealth, Hendersonville, alongside other local medical professionals, the church provided pre-screening and post-screening checks for triglycerides, glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, and BMI. Every Tuesday evening from August 29 to September 26, 2023, participants were invited to partake in plant-based suppers, featuring local speakers who addressed the upcoming week’s topics. This provided an opportunity for camaraderie and support.
During the concluding supper meeting, DeRose joined the group via Zoom, offering a challenge to sustain the lifestyle recommendations they had embraced and put into practice during the 30-day period. He also fielded questions from those in attendance. Notably, 12 of the participants were not Seventh-day Adventists and had attended cooking classes at the church for the past two to three years, further enriching these interpersonal bonds.
The church intends to collaborate with Rethinking Evangelism to ensure that the valuable resources from Timeless Healing Insights remain accessible for continuous outreach efforts.
