Foundations of Gospel Health Evangelism (formerly Health Coaching & Advanced Lifestyle Consultations) is an 11-week, online, health coach certification course that fosters an understanding of the call to gospel health evangelism and the various methods of engaging with health coaching clients as a part of that work. In this course, students will learn, explore, and utilize the C.A.R.E. Technique™ in order to effectively conduct health coaching sessions. The C.A.R.E. Technique™  is an easy-to-learn and extremely effective method of both conducting and documenting oral wellness interviews with lifestyle clients, as well as leading them on a journey towards optimal integrated health. In addition to learning the C.A.R.E. Technique™, students will also learn:

  • the components of a medical interview,
  • how to effectively inspire change within their clients,
  • how to retain and follow up with clients throughout their journey to wellness,
  • how to locate evidence-based therapeutic interventions,
  • the legal aspect of health coaching,
  • how to teach health principles in various forums,
  • when to refer clients back to their primary care doctors or to the emergency department,
  • and more.

Through our Business Center, students also learn the business aspect of health coaching. During this course, students have the opportunity to have logos constructed, websites designed, decide on prices for their services that are appropriate to their geographical location, set up accounts with companies for secure video consulting services and therapeutic-grade herbs and supplements, and more.

Upon completion of the course, health coaches have the opportunity to be featured on our website, which helps increase their websites’ rankings with Google and other search engines. They also have the opportunity to join the “SHINE Educational Institute Online” Facebook group, which provides a medium for professional networking among and continued support from both peers and instructors. As future opportunities arise, alumni will also be provided the opportunity to shadow our medical director, Dr. Janelle Louis ND, and our education director, Jeff Louis, in order to learn the clinical and business aspects of medicine and private practice.
