Impacting our world
Relationships are an important part of everything we do, including global outreach. We've spent years developing specific partnerships around the world so our short-term mission trips have a greater and longer-lasting impact on the international communities we serve. Though our trips are specialized, you don't have to have a medical, business or construction background to participate. If you have a heart for God's people, we have a way you can make a difference.
For over a decade, we’ve partnered with Bongolo Hospital to provide physical and spiritual healing to thousands of people, and to train African doctors to become surgeons. We send medical specialists, usually 1-2 surgeons, multiple times a year to help assist with training, and we work with the hospital to equip its facilities and provide medical equipment.

We began a partnership with the Cumbaya Church in Quito, Ecuador in 2003. Now, we send teams of people to work with El Puembo Church, a Cumbaya church plant, to provide basic health care for underserved children, teens and adults, with nearly 2,000 patients each trip. This is a great opportunity for doctors, dentists and nurses, but there are a number of ways you can serve without a medical background.
