DOVE Medical Missions exists to promote and help organize medical and other service mission teams throughout the world in order to compassionately serve and help draw all mankind to Jesus. Our mission will be reached by:
- Sending medical and other personnel to the nations, both short-term and long-term
- Facilitating and sending medical teams and supporting ministry teams
- Resourcing DOVE churches into medical and service ministry, encouraging cooperation with DOVE ministries, churches and church plants
- Establishing ongoing, long-term medical ministry where needed
- Training and educating local medical personnel
DOVE Medical Missions is working both to help establish and resource long-term works of medical outreach as well as organizing short-term teams from the USA to various nations of the world. In recent years we have served in Peru, Kenya, Uganda, Iraq and Haiti.
Are you interested in knowing more details about teams or projects? We would love to hear from you. Email or call the DMI Office.
While serving on a medical team in January 2007, in Garissa, Kenya, God spoke to Dr. Scott Jackson’s heart while flying home. He was in awe of how God used the vehicle of medicine to show the love of Jesus to a Muslim tribe. The tribal chief had said that he saw “Christ in your people. You may not get the older folks, but you may get the children” (speaking of converting to Christianity).
Dr. Jackson was impressed to begin to develop a more intentional program to help organize, teach and act as a resource to those interested in serving on both short and long-term medical teams. In January 2017, Dr. Jackson handed over leadership to Greg Fritz. We thank Scott for his years of faithful commitment to reaching many with the compassion of Christ.
