Prescription for Renewal


A conference for Christian physicians and dentists, October 9-11, 2015

Plan now to join us in 2015 for the 26th annual Prescription for Renewal conference. Continuing Medical Education credit will be available for physicians, dentists, and nurses through the optional Missionary Medicine Seminar.

CONFERENCE INFORMATION The 26th annual Prescription for Renewal conference and Missionary Medicine Seminar are scheduled for October 9-11 at the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove in Asheville, North Carolina.

Coordinated by World Medical Mission, the medical arm of Samaritan's Purse, Prescription for Renewal offers Christian doctors, dentists, nurses, and their spouses an opportunity to explore the world of missionary medicine in a peaceful retreat setting in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Since 1977, World Medical Mission has helped thousands of physicians serve on short-term assignments in mission hospitals and clinics around the world.

A shared desire to serve the Lord prompts the prayer: “May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands” (Psalm 90:17, NIV). We hope that you will be able to join us in October to learn more about medical missions and current opportunities for serving overseas.
