Every year we send around 20 short-term mission teams to work in the area surrounding our campus in Kenya.
Teams include many areas of expertise and touch a variety of people in the community we serve.
Medical/Surgical Teams bring a variety of specialties such as – eye specialist, ENT, OB/GYN, general surgery, pediatric surgery, and in 2021 we are planning our very first Breast Screening and Breast Surgery teams.
You don’t have to be a medical professional to join a team! We also have teams that work in education, social work, administrative, construction, and outreaches such as VBS and spiritual conferences.
We need you. All of you. Join the serve life today by filling out the form below.
