Opportunity – Scalpels & Stethoscopes

Explore Mission Opportunities in Healthcare

You have a heart to address physical needs and improve the health of the people you meet. After years of training, you finally have the license to be a nurse, surgeon or therapist. What will you do now? Perhaps you feel most comfortable in the operating room. Or training parents to use physical therapy at home to help their children.

“We are looking for Kingdom messengers who have medical skills and want to use those skills to advance the gospel in the hard places.” – A Pioneers doctor in the Middle East

Have you considered using your expertise as a means to serve cross-culturally and bring the Good News to people who have never had a chance to hear about Jesus? We have opportunities for people like you.

  • Madeline serves as a doctor in a rural area where healthcare is scarce.
  • Adam and Claire counsel refugees and victims of war as they work through trauma.
  • Michelle is on a team that helps provide equipment for people with physical handicaps. She works in a country where those with disabilities are stigmatized.
  • Reese, a midwife, leads a team in an area with high maternal mortality. They deliver babies and provide pre-natal and postnatal care.

Others serve through chiropractics, community health, nursing or teaching healthcare in universities.

Medicine and healthcare give these Pioneers unique access. Their specialized skills help them meet felt needs and walk with people through hard times, while sharing stories about Jesus, the Great Physician Who has the power to heal.
