A successfully completed Discipleship Training School with Youth With A Mission.
Medical Professionals and the Primary Health Care graduate will use their prior learning to be effective for the challenging health needs. Lectures will be both inspiring and informative whereby the Holy Spirit becomes the leader and healer.
The school encourages a holistic approach to health care and enables each student to apply godly solutions and strategies to the needs.
Engaging in both urban and health-depleted areas, the school is uniquely designed to challenge and inspire you to develop and build on the skills already gained and to use them as God intends.
Have you ever felt that meeting someone's physical needs only solved part of the problem? More than a physical body, we were created with a soul and spirit. Jesus' approach to every individual was holistic: He cared for their physical needs as well as their spiritual and emotional needs. Learn more about how we as Christian medical workers have the opportunity to bring holistic health.
Basic dentistry skills are needed in developing countries. Skills and knowledge applied can change the world for someone in pain. Learn the guidelines for tooth extraction, atraumatic restorative treatment and how to teach simple methods for oral hygiene.
Be led by the holy spirit as you do health care and seek to know the ways that Jesus healed as you reach out to the sick. Combine your skill and faith, and see God move! His touch, His kindness, His love will make a difference.
Once the lecture phase is complete, the MMS goes on outreach. In 2018 we will be going to the nation of Nepal!
While there, we apply what we've learned over the last three months. Teams travel into both rural and urban settings to hold medical, mobile and dental clinics, train locals and serve the community using their expertise.
New skills are developed and refined as prior learning is used under the leadership of the Holy Spirit in a team setting.
You will have the opportunity to treat and diagnose illness. Many times our teams have found people who have been critically ill, they have acted quickly, prayed and treated them and their lives were saved. The alternate to this would have been death, but God intervenes and miracles occur!
Obstetrics, dentistry, specialised skills, these can all be used as teams interface with many and varied situations. As you are willing to serve, the outreach is a unique opportunity for you as a medical professional to gain new skills and be used in your unique gift.
For people living in a rural village, sometimes the nearest health post is a five-day walk away. For others living in a city slum health care may be just as difficult to access because of social and economical status. On outreach, you will have the opportunity to meet the medical needs of the world's forgotten.
