Medical Mission Trips for Nurses, NPs, Physician Assistants, & More

What nurses, nurse practitioners and physicians assistants need to Know about Medical Missions.

Medical Missionaries Provide The Hope Of Healthcare And The Gospel

Hear how Kathleen’s life was changed by her experience in medical missions.

God will move mountains so you are able to serve.

We understand the tension of feeling called into medical missions while navigating life and working full-time in the United States. There are very real concerns about how you’ll find the time off you need or how to fund the trip.

We’ve seen so many nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants struggle with this tension, but every time, we’ve also seen God provide in powerful ways.

The concerns medical professionals have before joining us on a mission are quickly eclipsed by the blessings they experience.

They feel like they’re making a difference at a level of depth they’ve never imagined.

They make powerful friendships along the way.

They feel God’s presence in powerful ways, witness the Holy Spirit at work in new ways, and deepen their relationship with Christ..

They find their spirits refreshed and renewed.

We believe it should be shouldn’t be overly complicated to use your medical expertise for the glory of God, so we organize everything in a way that lets you show up and keep all of your focus on providing healing and hope to those who need it.

What’s expected of medical practitioners on your trips?

Participants should be someone who shares our mission to deliver both high quality medical care and the hope of the gospel to people in need.

We need people who are team players, flexible, and open to new experiences. This is an experience like no other, and the unexpected lies ahead.

It also helps to approach these trips with humility and a servant’s heart. Many of our patients have never seen a doctor before in their lives! It’s a very different patient encounter which requires a willingness to approach the work in new ways.

On the practical side of things, there are a few team meetings prior to the trip, and during the trip, we ask people to attend morning worship and a debrief time at the end of the day.

What’s expected from nurses in terms of treatment?

Little did I know at that time, how my life trajectory would change, based on the work that I've been able to participate in with MPFC. If nothing else is accomplished in my life, I want to continue to be a part of the Gospel spread in Africa- in whatever ways God is going to use me!”
