Market Place Workers in Closed Countries - Use your medical skills to go where other missionaries cannot. Take your job and GO!

Marketplace Healthcare Professionals in Closed Counties

Breakout Session
Main Building ED 202/206

Are you a nurse? Are you a pharmacist? A doctor? A physical therapist? A medical professional? Then you ARE a market place worker. Go to the Unreached World now! Bring your job, your family, live with air conditioning and pay your own way!

90% of the world's Unreached Non-Christians live in closed countries, but the typical "missionary" can no longer get into those places. However, these same countries have a huge need for skilled workers, and will give precious visas to pharmacists, nurses, doctors, physical/occupational therapists, etc. Christian professionals who go are the emerging face of missions in closed countries. These "Market Place Workers" are using their medical skills to get into closed countries, to go the Unreached, and to the ends of the earth.
