Faith Based Weight Loss & Wellness Company Sets it’s Sights on Shrinking The Size of Church Congregations Across the Country


10 City “How Faith Wins at Weight Loss Tour & Church Challenge” Kicks off in Los Angeles

December 14, 2007 (Los Angeles, CA) – While many Pastors across the country look for ways to grow their congregations, Body Temple Wellness, a Los Angeles based Christian weight-loss and Wellness Company, will be challenging them to shrink their memberships – their member’s individual sizes that is. With over 65% of churchgoers in the overweight or obese category (according to a Purdue University study), Body Temple Wellness is launching a nationwide 10 city tour and weight loss challenge to bring the type of lasting weight loss success to other cities across America that Los Angeles area churchgoers have experienced since 1994.

The “How Faith Wins at Weight Loss Tour & Church Challenge” kicks off in Los Angeles with a free 2 hour workshop on January 14, 2008 at 7 PM located at Faithful Central Bible Church Tabernacle (located at 321 N Eucalyptus Ave Inglewood, CA). The 2 hour workshop will give life changing information on health and wellness, and explain the controversial concept of why diets rarely (if ever) work for people of faith.

Another groundbreaking component of this tour is the first ever church based weight loss challenge. During each tour stop, churches will be encouraged to form teams of 8 to participate in the 12-week Body Temple National Weight Loss Church Challenge – which will reward one team per city based on the quality of their outer and inner transformation and over-all team percentage weight loss.

This challenge will strengthen families and increase the health and longevity of entire communities. Says Shannon Tanner, founder of Body Temple Wellness, 15 year veteran leader in the weight loss and wellness industry, and published author of the groundbreaking weight loss guide Diet’s Don’t Work, But Jesus Does.

Additional tour cities include Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Charlotte, DC/Maryland, Chicago, Detroit, and San Diego.
