Grace Dental and Medical Missions looks to the local church as our primary source of support, in both prayers and finances, and for missionary workers.
We devote considerable effort to visiting local churches to make them aware of medical missions and how our efforts dovetail with those of missionaries on the field. Since the local church is the primary sending agency of missionaries with a church planting focus we spend time at local church missions conferences explaining how dental and medical clinics contribute to missionary evangelism and church planting.
We are both a “helps” ministry for local church and missionary evangelism and also a mission board to work with local churches to prepare and send missionaries to the field. In the case of missionaries who desire to work on the field as part of a health care clinic or on a team with a doctor/dentist/nurse we view GDMMissions’ involvement as critical to helping these efforts succeed.
