IHS Global (formerly International Health Services) trains Christian healthcare workers who are already caring for the physical needs of their patients to also care for their spiritual needs. Believing the words of Jesus that we are to be His witnesses from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth (Act 1:8), IHS Global equips and mobilizes Christian healthcare workers as witnesses for Jesus. Why? So that patients in hospitals and clinics throughout the world hear about the reality of Jesus and experience His compassion through the words and actions of Christian healthcare workers.
We are motivated by three realities:
- This week more people worldwide will walk through the doors of a hospital or clinic than through the doors of a church.
- Private moments with patients and their families are unique opportunities for these workers to share the love and reality of Jesus.
- There are 7.5 million Christian workers in the world. The question that begs an answer is, “What if they were equipped to appropriately use those moments for Jesus?”
