Primary health care is the single greatest need in the world today, aside from the sharing of the gospel. The Primary Health Care School uniquely combines primary health care and God's heart for the poor and needy. The PHC offers training in essential health care that is easily accessible and affordable for communities. This school is for anyone who has a passion for God and for helping the poor, whether you have previous healthcare training or not. Jesus wants to heal today, just as He did in the Bible, and He wants to use you to bring this healing!
God’s desire to heal the whole person is reflected in our wide-range of topics during lecture phase. These include: God's biblical mandate for healthcare, His nature and character; keys to healthy communities, simple and basic treatments against disease spread, praying for the sick, health education and more. Through all of this, you will be equipped to see many lives saved from preventable and treatable illnesses – as well as gain true life as they encounter Jesus. Ministering to the whole person is a vital part of the community's health. As a primary healthcare worker in missions you have the privilege of carrying with you the power of God to transform!
