Healthcare Missions and the Kingdom of God

Every aspect of Jesus’ ministry - - his prayers, teaching, healing and even his identity - - seems to have been shaped by his vision of the Kingdom of God. As we follow him in health care missions, the Kingdom should also define our goals, methodologies, and ways of relating with those we serve and with our co-workers. It should fuel our hope and our perseverance.
In this session, we will:
• Learn about the Kingdom of God and healing from several gospel stories
• Identify conflicting or paradoxical perspectives on the Kingdom that may fog or hinder our healthcare ministries
• Outline a vision of the Kingdom that can give focus and power to our healthcare missions
• Explore the relationship between evangelism and healthcare missions
• Collectively identify resources and networks that give ongoing help as we clarify our vision and strengthen our faithful practice.
