This means missionaries coming off the field with potentially no desire to return. Coupled with the world of COVID, there are very few people filling those roles and coming to help bring relief for short-term assistance. This may be one of the greatest issues of our time in healthcare missions.
This is the first of two virtual events designed to bring recognition and understanding to this issue. We invite you to attend, to come and learn, and to interact with others on this great issue. Join us for this FREE event to learn how you might fit into this story.
We stand at an unprecedented time in history where we are witnessing a significant amount of attrition with many healthcare missionaries coming home, many with little intent to return (currently an estimated 20% attrition).
As these needs have been brought to our attention, our team has worked to create one approach to addressing this significant need. Essentially a plan to hyper-focus on short-term engagement in global missions to help relieve and replenish global healthcare missionaries.
We’re going to be talking a lot about short-term engagement in the next few months. This specific event is designed to help connect individuals with organizations that offer short-term opportunities to serve.
Who is this event for?
What can I expect from this event?
One of the many things we love about healthcare missions is just how much of a family we all are and in times like this, we come together to encourage each other and work toward greater engagement.
That is our goal … to come together again for the glory of God.
Thanks for your engagement in this initiative… we need every one of you!
