Why should I join or renew my membership in the BMDF?

That is the question I ask myself and you should also.

I don’t want to waste my time nor resources on things that are not Kingdom focused.

To answer that question, let me share what we are doing and our future plans.

This year we have supported

  • Students on mission trips
  • Ukrainian refugee work
  • Members to provide medical care to Ukrainian refugees
  • Members on other international mission trips
  • CPR training course for those serving long term overseas
  • CE for missionaries serving overseas
  • CE for missionaries on stateside

As we look toward the future, we are planning to launch a mentorship program for undergraduate/graduate healthcare students.

We see this as an investment in the future of healthcare missions.

Therefore, we solicit your active participation as we continue our relationship with long term members, welcome back inactive members and hope to attract new members from a variety of healthcare backgrounds.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at
