The mission of Christian Community Health Fellowship is to encourage, engage and equip Christians to live out the gospel through healthcare among the poor and marginalized.
We believe that there is a growing movement of Christians who are committed to bring healing to marginalized communities in Jesus’ name. CCHF is the joint effort of those in the movement to help others find their place in our common cause, persevere in our mutual calling, and grow in our understanding of what it means to be ambassadors of Christ in healthcare and in communities of need.
Simply put, the role of CCHF is to support and grow this movement. We do this by...
- The most powerful thing about CCHF is the actual community. It is real. It is relational. It is a family. We are committed to each other’s success. So, like the body of Christ, we share our experiences and insights with one another and help one another any way we can. I love the part of my job that helps members of the CCHF family find one another and connect in meaningful ways that honors Christ and advances His cause.
Students and Residents
A big part of what we do is reaching out to Christians during their training years. Through collaborative relationships with groups like CMDA, MCO and Intervarsity, we send practitioners to speak to campus groups at medical, dental, nursing, PA and behavioral health campuses. We provide clinical experiences through a network of preceptor and internship programs in Christian clinics. And when the time comes, we help residents find placements at clinics where they can integrate faith with clinical care for the medically underserved. Learn much more at the "Students" tab on our website.
This website is designed to be a tool shed where members of the movement share resources to help you grow in your conviction and ability to fulfill a calling in healthcare as an integrated part of your walk with Christ. It is constantly changing and growing. Our community adds content, and the dialogue continues as we wrestle with what it means to live out the gospel through healthcare among the poor.
National and Regional Events
The biggest and most visible of these is the annual CCHF conference. It is a 3-day event with inspiring speakers, informative workshops, and potent times of networking. Major Christian leaders and pioneers make themselves available to sit with newcomers, to both share and to listen to the new voices that God is raising up in this community.
