2017 M3 Conference

February 17 – 18, 2017

The 2018 M3 Conference was a success! More than a dozen sponsors provided the support needed to make this event possible, and over 150 volunteers provided a warm welcome and superb hospitality to our speakers, exhibitors, and attendees. We were excited to see the 1,000+ conference attendees connect with each other in the Exhibit Hall, breakout sessions, and networking lunch areas. Over 30 speakers inspired us to take the first or next step into global missions to help those in need. Our speakers covered a wide variety of topics including global healthcare, nutrition, short and long-term missions, anti-human trafficking, and much more. Our keynote speaker, Gary Haugen, the Founder and CEO of International Justice Mission, challenged us with the question, “Do you want to be brave or safe?” Because you can’t be both. In between sessions, attendees were able to visit the Exhibit Hall where more than 75 organizations were available to help answer questions and provide opportunities for guests to find their mission. Other conference highlights included the tribute to Billy Graham, the Samaritan’s Purse Emergency Field Hospital that was set-up and open for tours, the cultural musical performance that represented nations from around the world, and the check presentation to help support the new Tenwek Cardiothoracic Center in Kenya. Thank you to everyone who made this M3 Conference so very special.

We invite you to mark your calendars to join us for the next Mobilizing Medical Missions (M3) Conference, which is set for February 22-23, 2019, where you can connect with others, be inspired, and find your mission. We look forward to seeing you there!

Dr. Paul Osteen shares about his experience from a two month mission trip to Iraq. He and other M3 Conference attendees recently returned home from Mosul, Iraq, where they volunteered at a Samaritan’s Purse field hospital performing surgery and giving medical care to victims of war. Although there was tragedy and loss of life, there were also signs of hope. He reminded us that we can all be the hands and feet of Jesus, and that we don’t overcome evil with evil, but we overcome evil with good! (Romans 12:21)

“With fear and trembling, I stepped out of my comfort zone to obey what I felt like God had placed in my heart and amazing things began to happen!”

-Paul Osteen, M.D.
