Chiseled Faith is ramping up for the 2020 Spreading the Gospel of Health and Fitness Tour! We would love to feature you as a host! We are looking for 12 host sites (preferably church or YMCA locations) to host a Chiseled Faith event that focuses on promoting health/fitness. This event will be targeting surrounding church communities with the goal of inspiring them to move. This will be an 1 1/2 hour event with an inspiration message followed up with movement and fellowship. We are partnering up with industry companies providing health/fitness goodie bags to the participants.
We want to make a lasting impact by providing the participants with a health and fitness plan, follow up, and results.
