Ministry Focus

Healthcare

We believe healthcare is a powerful tool for serving the physical and spiritual needs of a sick and hurting world. In our nearly 90 years of ministry, we have seen compassionate medical care soften hearts to hear the important message of the gospel, changing lives for today and eternity. But we can't do any of this without you. ABWE needs healthcare professionals who want to use their passion and talents to serve people in need for as little as one 1-week up to their entire career.

Since ABWE was founded in 1927 with Dr. Raphael Thomas, we have used healthcare as a way to express God’s love and share the path to eternal life through:

  • AIDs ministry outreach
  • Community healthcare projects
  • Crisis pregnancy centers
  • Dental clinics
  • Disaster relief and humanitarian crisis work
  • Hospitals
  • Mobile clinics
  • Orphan care

Thousands of patients around the world have heard the gospel. As people respond, missionaries follow up with the goal of connecting new believers with a local church. Churches throughout the world can be traced back to our medical ministries.
