The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to examine the effects of the implementation of a church-based health education program that involves the health belief attitudes of Black Americans. The data obtained from the Preventive Health Seeking Questionnaire revealed the experimental group indicated more awareness or plans for preventive health screening and activities than the control group. The data obtained from the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire revealed the parishioners perceived their pastor as using a transformational type of leadership style. Implications from this study are that disseminating health information through places of worship and pastoral training on health preventive screening may be an area of need for health promotion and disease prevention and reducing health disparities among Black Americans.
