Opportunity

Medical Personnel

The Position

Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, ABWE is limiting international travel of short-term missionaries originating from the US and assessing the level of risk per country per US State Department guidelines. To inquire about travel restrictions or exceptions, please contact go@abwe.org. We would love to talk to you!


Our team needs medical personnel with specialties and experience in nursing, community health, general medicine, obstetrics and pediatrics to serve at the New Life Prenatal Center — a well-established evangelistic crisis pregnancy center that offers sonograms and counsel for crisis pregnancies, prenatal checkups throughout the pregnancy, and postnatal and pediatric checkups to over 500 women a year in Lima, Peru. This opportunity would also include involvement in various local church ministries according to your gifts and interests.

Requirements Include:

  • A willingness to develop a grasp of the Spanish language and Peruvian culture
  • A US Degree
  • A year or more of study in a Peruvian medical university (in Spanish) to receive a license to practice medicine in Peru
The Need

The ABWE team in Peru is united with one vision: to plant and equip local churches and ministries with meaningful social and spiritual impact that will intentionally launch church-planting efforts with the ultimate goal of fueling world missions movements for God’s glory.

Our team is strategically located in four of the major cities in Peru: Iquitos (Amazon jungle), Chiclayo (northern coast), Lima (the capital) and Arequipa (southern Andes Mountains). In these four regions we are in proximity to about 40% of Peru’s 30 million people. Our mission field, however, is the entire world.

We need your help to equip generations of biblically-minded Peruvian believers who will not only plant churches and become missionaries around the world, but also generously sustain a global missions movement.

The Impact

Use your medical skills on the mission field to heal people physically and spiritually. In our nearly 90 years of ministry, 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.
