The Black church has a long history of addressing unmet health and human service needs, yet few studies have examined characteristics of churches involved in health promotion.
Data obtained from a survey of 635 Black churches in the northern United States were examined.
Univariate and multivariate statistical procedures identified eight characteristics associated with community health outreach programs: congregation size, denomination, church age, economic class of membership, ownership of church, number of paid clergy, presence of other paid staff, and education level of the minister.
