Welcome!
Adventists InStep for Life was created by the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to assist Adventist churches, schools and health care organizations in tackling the challenge of childhood obesity. Every conference, church, school, university and health care organization in the North American Division is encouraged to form an Adventists InStep for Life team to coordinate activities that inspire healthy eating and physical activity and further awareness of childhood obesity in their community.
