Medical Missions

The vision of DOVE Medical Missions is proclaiming Christ to the nations through medical care.

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

In recent years we have served in Peru, Kenya, Uganda, Iraq and Haiti. Contact DOVE medical missions by email here.
