We hope you have had a great week so far and are looking forward to the fact that the M3 Conference is only a week away! We are so grateful to have David Jackett with us this year and would love to tell you a little bit about him tonight.

After spending 10 years as a professional firefighter/paramedic in Fort Worth, TX, David left the fire service for full-time vocational ministry with Frontier Ventures (formerly known as the US Center for World Mission). He currently serves as the Texas Regional Director of the Perspectives Study Program. David has led more than a dozen trips to Central America doing evangelism, medical and orphan care, firefighter training and church planting. He has helped his church and others develop missionary training and equipping programs and he has spoken to thousands of students and adults across the US and Central America about God’s global mission with a great passion to mobilize the body of Christ to strategic engagement in God’s global purpose.

David and his wife, Jennifer live in the Dallas area. Jen serves with East-West Ministries as a part of their South Asia team and together they run Missio Dei Collaborative Workspace, which unites different ministries and churches to work together to complete the Great Commission.

David Jackett will be facilitating our Pre-Conference Workshop #1 titled “Made for More: Finding Your Place is God’s Global Purpose” where he will be speaking on the Perspectives Study Program.

Medical Benevolence Foundation Sponsors 2018 M3 Conference

One of our big sponsors this year is Houston’s own MBF – Medical Benevolence Foundation. We are so honored and grateful for their belief in M3 and partnering with us!

MBF has been a non-profit for over 50 years. They serve as a partner to individuals and churches in the US that have a passion for spreading the gospel through medical missions in developing countries. MBF “strives for medical excellence by promoting health through the physical presence of medical mission co-workers, education, disease prevention, and curative care, for those in impoverished communities suffering from acute and chronic illness. They seek to bring up-to-date, evidence-based health care practices and technology as we support the appropriate, affordable, sustainable and quality services of our partners.” They serve as a link to help build the capacity of churches in the US to provide healthcare ministries to churches in need. This creates more personal support systems as these churches continually help provide the healthcare needs for the communities abroad.

MBF has many opportunities for anyone to become involved including going on a mission trip or becoming an ambassador. They will be an exhibitor at the M3 Conference as well so we hope you take the time and get to know them a little better! Click here to register now. See you February 23 & 24!

M3 Welcomes Dr. Jennifer Gray to the 2018 M3 Conference

Jennifer Gray

Today we want to introduce another talented speaker that will be at this year’s M3 Conference and also the organization she is proud to be a part of that will be exhibiting this year. First, let’s get to know Dr. Jennifer Gray.

Jennifer D. Gray, MD is a pediatrician in private practice in a suburb of Houston at Pearland Pediatrics.  She received her undergraduate degree from Baylor University, Medical Degree from the University of Texas Medical School at Houston and completed residency training at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.  In 2014 she began serving on short-term medical mission trips with Mission of Hope Haiti.  Jennifer’s time in Haiti has inspired her to share with others about how God is working through Mission of Hope to change Haitian lives, and it has given her a desire to introduce others to medical missions by showing that there is a lasting value in serving short term.

As an organization following Jesus Christ, Mission of Hope exists to bring life transformation to every man, woman, and child in Haiti.  Founded in 1998, Mission of Hope Haiti established an onsite orphanage, medical facility, school, and church.  Through expansion and partnerships, Mission of Hope serves its surrounding regions of influence through education, healthcare, agriculture, nutrition, and community development programs.  The medical clinic on campus is fully Haitian run and includes an emergency room, vision clinic, dental clinic, and prosthetic lab.  Mission of Hope utilizes visiting mission trip teams to serve through local churches and schools in eighteen villages with on-going mobile medical clinics and community health initiatives.

Jennifer will be speaking on “The Long and Short of It: Realizing the Bigger Vision while Serving Short Term” in her breakout session on Saturday. Mission of Hope Haiti will also be an exhibitor at this year’s conference. We hope you join us on February 23 & 24! Click here to register now.
