One of the 35 ministries of Remnant Fellowship Church, Weigh Down Ministries was founded over 30 years ago by New York Times best-selling author, Gwen Shamblin.  Weigh Down is the pioneer of faith-based weight loss programs with a track record of unprecedented results.  The program is the proven solution to permanent weight loss, as well as the answer to overcoming all dependancies, because it addresses the heart of man and the desires that drive a person to overeat or rely on a substance rather than rely on God.  The results are amazing and lasting!


Weigh Down - Desert Oasis - Testimony Lineup

Testimonies of tremendous weight loss, healed relationships and changed lives for the better through Weigh Down.

It was best described as if liquid joy had filled the sanctuary of Remnant Fellowship Church as person after person testified to a changed life for the better. The fellowship in between sessions felt as if what was really taking place was one giant family reunion. Even after the “planned” events ended, young and old alike stayed late into the evening laughing and enjoying conversation about answered prayers and all that God is doing.
