Have you considered organizing an international medical missions outreach with your church but don’t know how to get started? HealthCare Ministries is the place to start.
HealthCare Ministries seeks to partner with churches to provide medical evangelism to the nations through an endeavor calledIt’s TIME, which stands for Together in Medical Evangelism. Churches can either sponsor an HCM medical outreach or they can use HCM as a resource for their own medical evangelism teams. As the international medical outreach of Assemblies of God World Missions, HCM has over 27 years of experience sending teams of healthcare professionals to minister in the areas of medical, dental, optical, health teaching, and disaster response. Churches that send their own medical evangelism teams are encouraged to connect with HCM because they have the expertise and resources available that could help the church in the logistical planning. These resources include contact information for obtaining supplies, best practice recommendations, HCM’s Short-term Outreach Manual, and consultation with their Church Teams coordinator.
Through TIME, HCM hopes to network with churches to offer them help in any area of their medical missions efforts because they feel that by partnering, medical evangelism can become a reality. HCM has resources available on their website, at www.healthcareministries.org/church-teams. For specific questions, call HCM at (417) 866-6311 or email email@example.com
