Why HCM?

2013-09 Colombia 008As a missionary, why do a HealthCare Ministries outreach?

To extend a touch of compassion.

What happens when you extend a touch of compassion?  You gain respect.  It opens opportunities and gives legitimacy to your ministry by showing expertise.  Compassion outreaches create an awareness of the church.  They break down barriers and establish credibility.  The result is changed lives.

HCM is field-driven—we only send teams at the request of Assemblies of God missionaries.  In other words, we can’t do this unless you—an AG missionary—ask us to come.

Did you know that HealthCare Ministries can do more than medical outreaches?

HCM offers a variety of health education outreaches that promote long-term prevention of illnesses and improved quality of life. Consider one of the following health initiatives in the area of ministry in which you serve.

HealthCare Ministries is in the process of expanding the outreach opportunities for future long-term impact.  Prevention strategies with health assessment and health education in partnership with the local health providers will be a major focus.  Of course, evangelism and utilization of the gifts of the Holy Spirit continue to be foremost in all outreaches.

Read about the variety of outreaches HCM offers called Health Initiatives.

These health initiatives will provide opportunities for health professionals to utilize their specialized training and interests in creative ways.  Since AG World Missions’ focus is going “Beyond – So All Can Hear”, we have the privilege of working with you in sensitive areas with unreached peoples groups to share the Gospel.

We will work with you to determine the best health initiative for your target community and encourage the participation of national health professionals. It is also our goal to develop relationships within the target community and then return to provide additional services.

An example of the tier impact:

  1. The first team into a community would be a health assessment team which includes dental and optical (12-20 team members) working with national health providers to identify the health issues in the community.
  2. A health education team would then offer community seminars on identified health concerns and also professional collaboration
  3. If there is interest for improving the health and spiritual conditions by the community and interested leaders are identified, Community Health Evangelism (CHE) would be initiated.

We are excited about what God is going to do through HCM in the future and we are looking forward to having you as an active participant. We cannot do this without you!

The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Luke 10:2 (NIV)
