CARING FOR THOSE WHO CARE FOR OTHERS
We exist to equip students and professionals in healthcare to worship God and to reach the community for Christ. We help healthcare professionals know Christ more through discipleship, we seek to care for them through relationships, and strive to send them out into their professions well equipped spiritually and professionally.
If we are faithful in carrying out our mission we expect to see the following:
- People coming to a saving knowledge and growing relationship with Christ on a regular basis.
- People being mentored into mature followers of Christ through small group and one on one discipleship.
- Marriages that are characterized by spouses loving, respecting and nurturing each other in relationships centered on Christ and guided by Biblical truths. Parents raising their children to be mature followers of Christ.
- People going out from the ministry with a missional mindset and lifestyle who are committed to win, build, and send out others as disciples of Christ both nationally and internationally.
- Health care professionals being influenced in a godly manner that values and treats the patient with a whole person concept: individuals with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.
