Opportunity

Medical & Dental Personnel

The Position

Join our team as a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, RN, physical therapist, nutritionist, dentist, or laboratory technician serving at the Ndungu Kebbeh Health Center in The Gambia.

Responsibilities for all positions include examination, diagnosis and treatment of medical disorders, supervision and ongoing training of national staff, and management of patient care. Healthcare providers would also assist the health center director in the day-to-day administration of the health center.

The medical personnel team will also:

  • Provide the best possible medical care and establish a trusting, loving relationship with these open and receptive people
  • Develop close relationships with community members in The Gambia, answering questions and facilitating discussion about God’s faith and grace when invited
  • Demonstrate healthcare best practices and techniques, and train others to provide the safest possible medical care
  • Help other members of the medical personnel team
  • Use the medical skills and abilities God provided you to minister to people's physical and spiritual needs
The Need

In The Gambia, and you’ll spend time among people who have never heard of Jesus Christ. English is the official national language of The Gambia, but of the 17 unreached people groups, many don’t speak the language. Wolof is commonly understood among these people groups. To minister to their spiritual needs, a willingness to learn their language and culture is necessary.

Although the barriers to missions are great in The Gambia, so are the rewards — people call us every week because they want to learn more about Jesus Christ! With 90 percent of the population coming from a Muslim background, and 2 percent holding indigenous views, there is a tremendous need to share God’s message of faith and grace.

The Impact

Use your medical skills on the mission field to heal people physically and spiritually. In our nearly 90 years of ministry with 35+ being in The Gambia, we have seen compassionate medical care soften hearts to hear the message of the gospel, changing lives for today and eternity. But we can't do this without you.
