Health Ministry

God cares for the hurting. SIM health care ministries have been used around the globe to open doors to show God's love and to invite them into a relationship with him. SIM's medical mission workers serve in a variety of roles alongside church planting teams, as tentmakers in government institutions, in HIV/AIDS related ministries and more.
SIM health professionals join other missionaries and local believers to reach out to communities where he is least known.  SIM has partner hospitals and also extends beyond formal institutions by seeking ways to develop and participate in community-based efforts to engage others.
Together we aim to see more of Jesus in all the places he has yet to be made known.

Care, restore, transform

SIM is making a world of difference through health care. Responding to physical needs through health related ministry is a core component of SIM's role in missions all over the globe.
