    The focus of this DNP project was a descriptive approach in gathering data related to participants' understanding of what a faith community health ministry is and how it can be valuable in promoting body, mind, and spirit wellness. The objectives for this project were to lay a foundation in initiating a faith community health ministry within a rural Christian parish; establish basic knowledge detailing the role of a faith-based nurse, and what benefits a faith community ministry can provide. The researcher assessed a priority of topics related to health promotion and prevention measures based on the parishioners' interests. The questions purported were: What is the effect of an on-line educational program on parishioners' knowledge of a Faith Community Nursing ministry? What health topics are of interest to a parish community?
