The Gregory Center for Medical Missions exists to foster the effective engagement of health care professionals in meeting the spiritual needs of under-served communities, both locally and around the world, via their attention to the communities’ physical and emotional health needs.

Working collaboratively with strategic partners in Christ-first medical missions, the Center’s primary focus is on the profession of pharmacy – supporting awareness and implementation of best practices, providing pharmacy service-associated training and sending well-prepared mission teams into the field.
