GHMC Provides Missions Opportunities


by Ryan Bower, Assistant Director of Public Relations

Students, faculty, staff and alumni from Cedarville University will attend the upcoming Global Missions Health Conference (GMHC) from November 5-7 at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky.

The conference will connect health professionals, missionaries and students from around the world, as well as provide seminars and other continuing education opportunities for attendees.

Cedarville University has partnered with MedicalMissions.com, the primary sponsor for the GMHC, for the past five years. MedicalMissions.com connects people health care missions by telling about their stories and experiences.

The 2015 GMHC will feature several plenary sessions and more than 100 breakout sessions, which will give attendees the opportunity to hear more about medical missions in their specific field. 

A large exhibition hall will be open and Cedarville University will operate a booth where conference participants can learn more about the many professional programs and mission opportunities that Cedarville offers.

More than 150 organizations will be represented in the exhibition hall, including a variety of mission organizations, colleges, professional organizations and churches.

In addition, a gathering for Cedarville alumni will be held on site on Friday, Nov. 6, from 5–7 p.m. with dinner and dessert served.
