Dr. Hightower emphasizes the importance of good health and wellness as a critical factor in fulfilling your purpose. He explains healthy living begins with education. “The Purpose Center is the place where people can come to get tools, trainings and resources in order to lead a successful life. As Pastors, we are Sheppard’s over God’s people. Therefore, we must be equally concerned with their physical well-being just as we are about their spiritually well-being”.
