Pre-Field Orientation for New Healthcare Missionaries

August 11, 2021 – August 14, 2021

Boone, North Carolina

Join fellow outgoing healthcare missionaries and veteran missionary faculty for what could be the most valuable four days you’ll spend in preparing to leave for the field. Medical training and sending organizations do a great job laying the groundwork, but preparing well to step into life as a healthcare missionary presents unique challenges and opportunities. This gathering will provide you with tools, knowledge, and relationships that you’ll find to be invaluable as you assume your new role on the mission field. Don’t miss it! Our August Pre-Field conference is co-hosted by Samaritan’s Purse.

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Boone, NC boasts a peaceful blend of mountain beuaty and Appalachian charm. The conference will be held at Mount Vernon Baptist Church and will be co-hosted by Samaritan’s Purse, whose headquarters is based in Boone.
