Tell us how you would like to serve. We are currently building a CHEC database of members areas of expertise, and areas of interest for service. We will be looking for ways to connect CHEC members to ministries and service opportunities in each of the areas below: mentoring, resource sharing, international service, and other service opportunities. You can also tell us your needs- if you are looking for a mentor or know a service opportunity. We will link members to opportunities in the future.
looking for a mentor or interested in being a mentor? We envision experienced administrators mentoring and encouraging young administrators, particularly those in ministry settings, and in international missions. Go to the CHEC forum on the CMDA Go App and fill out the survey above as we build our CHEC database of service opportunities and CHEC members who are ready to serve. Also if you are interested in becoming a better mentor, check out the Center for Well-being program - Mentoring with a Coach Approach.
Are you interested in forming a partnership with a non-profit group in the USA or internationally? Is your system changing out used but good medical equipment that you would be willing to donate? Maybe you have openings in your system that could be filled by missionary physicians on furlough. Do you have the ability to contribute in other ways to mission hospitals and other non-profit health care work? We would love to facilitate connections through CHEC. Fill out the interest form and go to the CHEC forums on CMDA Go App to state your need or your willingness to connect to others. Likewise if you are a missionary or healthcare ministry administrator or international executive serving an underserved area, fill out the interest form above and post on the forum in the CMDA Go App. Tell us about your needs. We would love to pray with you and try to help make connections.

Help represent CHEC by helping at a convention. CHEC has been present at the Global Healthcare Missions conference to help young people thinking about a career in health care administration and missions. We would also like to connect to CMDA Canada, and others. We would love to have members help with these. Let us know if you know of other opportunities as well. Post on the CMDA Go App forums.
Give to CHEC
CHEC is a new division of CMDA. Would you help us financially to begin this ministry? Funds will be used for joining into conferences like those above, to send CHEC representatives on international consulting or teaching trips, as well as mailings and other day to day needs.
