Christian Olympics Health & Wellness: A Fun New Way To Grow Faith During Love Life Wellness Summer Games

Share Article

A certified faith-based wellness organization has launched a new way to grow faith during the summer games by playing a socially interactive game. The Christian Olympic games is a 12-day event where Christian women complete “Olympic events” for social, health, and spiritual wellness. Athletes learn how growing their faith is like a ‘race’ as described in the bible. Participants earn points, medals and prize giveaways. Everything is cost-free.

...the ultimate prize is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ

A Christian women’s health & wellness organization, Love Life Wellness Inc., has created a fun new way to celebrate the peace and goodwill the Olympics represent by playing a social wellness online game this summer. Coach Liz, Event Director and organizer of the Christian Olympic games says the purpose of the 12-day event is to, “perform daily faith-growing activities that are chosen to create positive health & wellness habits supported by biblical scripture.

These “Olympic events” are activities such as using a free Facebook app to draw a popular biblical scripture, write an encouraging note to a friend, and what Coach Liz calls, “playful silly stuff like a game of tag with a friend”. Participants, or Christian Athletes, use a popular 3rd party app to track and integrate the faith-based activities. Upon completed the daily events women receive points, rewards, & recognition. The 12-day Christian Olympics event starts July 26th, 2012 with opening ceremonies that include: Parade of Athletes, Special Guest Dignitary, Visual Extravaganza Entertainment, Torch Lighting, Virtual Fireworks Display, and runs through Aug 8th, 2012.

The Christian Olympics game strives to make it fun and socially interactive by using a tree as a metaphor for wellness that must be seeded, watered, and nurtured to grow. This wellness tree has leaves representing three areas; relationships, health, and spiritual. Each daily activity will relate to these areas. Each completed ‘Olympic’ activity makes the trees grow. Christian women will also get free coaching to learn how the disciple Paul compares growing their faith to a competitive ‘race’ needing perseverance and daily training to compete and win as written in 1 Cor 9:24 and Heb 12:1.

Coach Liz, Director of Events, will present Christian women with prize giveaways such as gas cards, movie passes, and faith-based gifts yet she instructs all participants, “that the ultimate prize is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ”. She wants to take a different approach to growing faith. Coach Liz figures, “what could be more fun then using Facebook and the latest apps to get people to physically go outside and do things that challenge them to grow their faith.” She believes faith is partly hearing and partly doing. This why most of the twelve Olympic events are physical activities that must be performed with others.

The conclusion of the games includes a closing ceremony where awards are presented, a closing prayer, and a virtual fireworks display. For more details see http://bit.ly/FacebookChristianOlympics.
