Short-Term Medical Mission Trips

Click For Online Trip Donations

Medical missions teams are made up of both medical professionals and nonmedical team members. Usually medical teams are about 15 members and one third of them are typically medical professionals. Medical training or not, you can play an important part in God's work. Doctors, nurses, dentists and other medical professionals play an obvious role on medical teams but so do electricians, teachers, business people, pastors, stay-at-home moms and anybody else with a heart for Christ are needed just as much. They are critical to the overall team.
