Summary

Using medicine as a means to draw people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our goal is to assist missionaries as they plant local, New Testament, Baptist churches, and to point others to the Great Physician. Medical Missions Outreach partners with Bible-believing churches around the world to evangelize the lost and disciple believers. Each patient that comes through our clinics will hear the beautiful message of the gospel, presented in their own language by a volunteer from that local church. Our precious patients are offered the spiritual support they need for themselves and their families through a door that was opened when someone cared enough to treat their pain. Long after our teams leave the field, many of these relationships continue when our former patients find a church home where they can grow and thrive in the company of people that love them.

Purpose

What can be accomplished on a short-term missions trip? You might be surprised. Although our team is on the field for 9-10 days, we carefully adhere to a philosophy that results in lasting impact.

Medical Missions Outreach partners with missionaries, church planters, and pastors across the globe who are leading their churches to follow the Biblical principle found in Luke 9:2, where Jesus sent His followers to preach the Kingdom and heal the sick. Using the unique platform of medicine, we are able to draw hundreds of people to a place where we attempt to meet their physical needs, while praying for opportunities to minister to their spiritual needs as well. To ensure the sustainability of these efforts, all of our clinics operate in conjunction with a local church. Our focus is to not only introduce hurting people to the Savior, but also provide them a connection to a church where they can find loving, compassionate encouragement for the challenge they will face in years to come.


Mission statement

We are committed to sharing the gospel in under-served communities through the tool of medicine.

History

In 2003, Bradley and Kelly Edmondson had an idea to take an annual medical missions trip to help a missionary reach his community with the gospel. The value of the tool of medicine became more apparent with every trip they took, as local churches in developing communities grew by leaps and bounds, while medical professionals and other volunteers sought more and more opportunities to use their skill sets to minister.

What began as an annual trip grew to more than ten trips on nearly every continent each year, but the focus remained the same: reach people who are hurting with ethical care and eternal spiritual care. Existing churches blossomed, and new churches were planted. Our philosophy has been and always will be: "Help local people; serve with a local church."

In 2018, the construction of the Rearick Surgical Center marked the first permanent overseas location of Medical Missions Outreach. Plans for additional clinics in Africa and Asia are underway. As doors to partner with missionaries and national pastors around the world continue to open, we rejoice in this unique opportunity we have been given and vow to run to help as God directs.
