SERVE: MEDICAL

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor. (Luke 4:18-19)

Serving a World in Need

Did you know 7.6 million children die annually from prematurity, pneumonia, diarrheal diseases, malaria, measles, and HIV/AIDS?

You can help by joining a medical team to reach people with poor access to healthcare. As part of a medical team, you'll not only meet tangible needs, you'll help missionaries and local church members build relationships and introduce others to Christ. Because MTW teams are always connected with a national church, there's opportunity for long-term spiritual connections and follow-up.

Medical Missions and Church Planting
How Do Medical Missions Help Plant Churches?
Villages around the world have poor access to health care. MTW medical clinics provide missionaries and local church members a way to meet a tangible need in the community as well as build relationships and introduce others to Christ. Because we are always connected with a national church, there's opportunity for long-term spiritual connections and follow up. Medical clinics are a great way for doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals to use their expertise for God's kingdom.
Serving for Longer than One Month
Serving for Longer than One Month
Our longer term medical missionaries serve as members of our church planting teams. They are dedicating their lives to acts of service, weaving the gospel and discipleship into building relationships with nationals, direct patient care, and training community health workers. The length of opportunities ranges from just over a month to career. Our short-term medical teams work alongside these missionaries to assist them in growing their ministry and the local church.

HIV/AIDS and the Responsibility of the African Church

I recently taught a seminary class on HIV/AIDS in central Africa. Why? Because myths about this leading cause of death still run rampant.

I Stared at the Face of Death on My Patient, and Cried

"It became evident that both the young mother and her baby were HIV positive. So I had to ask the next question, 'Are you taking your meds?'
