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, most people have never heard of Jesus Christ. About 90% of the Gambia’s two million people are Muslim, and evangelical believers make up less than one percent of the population. While English is the official national language of the Gambia, most unreached people groups speak the Wolof language. To minister to their spiritual needs, a willingness to learn their language and culture is necessary.

Although there are challenging barriers to missions in the Gambia, the rewards are great. Equipped with Bible resources in the Wolof language, people are responding to the message of Jesus Christ! God has opened doors to serve as a missionary in the Gambia, and we are in of more workers—will you help us introduce more people to the love of Jesus?

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.
