Building God’s Kingdom at GHMC

GMHC 2015For the past 16 years, it has been my joy to be a part of the Global Health Missions Conference (GHMC) that takes place annually at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY in November. This year’s conference to be held November 5-7, 2015 promises to continue the tradition of challenging healthcare professionals and students to allow God to use their knowledge and skills in building his kingdom.

I’m especially excited about this year’s conference because one of the plenary speakers is a nurse who I worked with and greatly admire. Debbie Dortzbach has served God well throughout her life as a missionary nurse. She has testified before congress and UNAIDS about the HIV/AIDS situation and written books on the topic. She has faced incredible challenges, including her own mortality on several different occasions, with grace and humility. She is also a wife to Karl, mother to three children, and has 10 grandchildren.

The great thing about GMHC is, whether it’s your first time or your 17th, you will find like-minded people who desire to serve God through healthcare. If you are a student, this is a great opportunity to meet seasoned veteran healthcare missionaries. If you are a nurse who has always wanted to do something in missions, you can connect with organizations looking for nurses to be a part of their mission. If you are a retired missionary nurse, like me, you can connect with friends and encourage the next generation of missionary nurses. It’s not too late to register to come. I’ll look forward to meeting you at the NCF exhibit.
