LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- 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" will present free 2 hour workshops in each tour city. The workshops 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 national 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 Diets Don't Work, But Jesus Does. After maintaining a 70 pound weight loss for more than ten years, Shannon Tanner is a firm believer that faith wins at weight loss.

Tour cities include Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Charlotte, DC/Maryland, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Since 1994, Body Temple Wellness has been directly responsible for helping Los Angeles-based congregations shed thousands of pounds and gain renewed spiritual, emotional, and physical health.
