CABL (Collegiate Adventist for Better Living) is a ministry that was created at Southwestern more than 20 years ago with the purpose of promoting healthier living in both spiritual and physical aspects. CABL is now supported by the Northern American Division Health Ministries as well as by every Adventist university in the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists.
Southwestern is going through a rebooting phase with this ministry since it has been relatively unknown for quite a while. “The purpose of this ministry is to bring awareness to college students, faculty, and staff about healthier living,” according to Islem Mattey, chaplain. “We want them to develop healthy lifestyle habits here at Southwestern that will continue on with them through their walks of life. We also want them to share the health message with others, including their families, their churches, and their communities.”
Ministry activities include but are not limited to: the Southwestern Color Run, Walkathon, health fairs, and Fitness contests. These are ways that Mattey is hoping to motivate the students, faculty, and staff of Southwestern.
