“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matt 28:18-20
The vision for Medical Missions is to work with local churches in developing countries to create outreach opportunities in their communities by meeting a practical, health-related need. We provide expertise, training and education for the local church members and work with them to conduct an outreach event such as medical screening clinic or vaccination drive.
The following opportunities are available within the next 12-18 months:
- The Philippines – We plan on a conducting regional clinics and equipping community health workers in the Bible college with Bobby and Noemi Pino in November 2014.
- Kenya – We will be partnering with Deliverance Church who regularly has a monthly medical missions outreach to the community and two major medical camps in a year. They have given us an open invitation to monthly clinics in rural areas as well as 2 annual clinics in the slums of Nairobi. Our scheduled visit at this time is November of 2015
- India – We will be planning a trip to Chennai in early February 2015 to conduct a series of clinics with Paul John.
We serve because access to quality medical care in developing nations is inconsistent and expensive in many parts of the world. Although this is tragic, it also provides a specific, practical way for us to help support our friends in local churches around the globe.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for doctors, nurses, CNAs, nurse practitioners, midwives, physician assistants and administrators. We need people with expertise in logistics and planning, construction and trades to make the most of the trips.
The main qualification is that you be preachers of the gospel and be people that care!!
If that is you, please take a moment to fill out this form and we’ll get in touch with you soon. The link is listed below
How do I prepare?
Pray about it. Talk to your pastor, parents, home group leaders and friends
There is a medical missions conference in Kansas City that I will be attending in May 2014. Here is the website:
Here are some books that I have been reading and found helpful, Generous Justice by Timothy Keller, When Helping Hurt by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert, and Where There Is No Doctor by David Werner.
Also save your money for travel :-). An average trip will cost between $1500-$2500 depending on where you are traveling to, season of travel, visa and immunization, to mention a few.
My goal is to keep you as informed as I can. If you have any questions, feel free to email me and I will do my best to answer your questions.
Thank you for your time and sacrifice
