Calling to the Greatest Need: Medical Missions Past, Present and Future
Medical missions has historically been critical to early Christian missionary efforts, meeting the “felt needs” of communities in Christ’s name. Mission hospitals have been used to advance the gospel, plant churches and improve health outcomes in some of the world’s most needy and hard to reach places. But the work is far from done. There are still millions of people with poor access to essential health services. There are also millions in hard to reach areas who have never heard the good news of Jesus Christ. Many are in “closed access” countries that do not allow “missionaries” but welcome well-trained health providers. We will explore these opportunities and how the Lord is using this generation of health care providers to advance His kingdom. How will He use you?
