Health Evangelism Course
Are you dreaming of becoming a missionary? Jesus in His mission work taught, preached, and healed. Our six-month Health Evangelism course combines all three, with an emphasis on health. This training is designed to give you all the skills you need to go out and reach the world through the health message. As Christian author Ellen G. White once wrote, medical missionary work is the “entering wedge of the gospel (…), and every soul should be filled with the true medical missionary spirit”.
“This course has been extremely informational, but above all it has been character building. I can’t wait to use these simple remedies to share the gospel with my community!”
Karen Purba, Health Evangelism graduate
