For over a quarter of a century MCO-Philadelphia has proclaimed Christ and made disciples on Philadelphia’s healthcare campuses. Tenth Presbyterian Church has faithfully provided spiritual oversight to MCO all those years. In 2021 the leadership at Tenth felt that with the growth of MCO, they should release them to find oversight that was more focused in equipping and engaging Christians in healthcare to faithfully follow Jesus. Tenth Presbyterian continues to support MCO in financial, in-kind and relational ways. But now, Medical Campus Outreach (MCO) - Philadelphia is a ministry of Christian Community Health Fellowship.
When the staff and Advisory Board of MCO asked CCHF to provide that oversight and covering, we were humbled. CCHF (Christian Community Health Fellowship) is a 40+ year old organization that has partnered with MCO-Philadelphia almost since the beginning. At the beginning of 2022 the Board of CCHF and the Advisory Board of MCO agreed to make MCO-Philadelphia part of the CCHF ministry.
Many CCHF students have participated in Summer Medical Institute which has been organized and run by MCO staff. SMI graduates work at many of our CCHF clinics as a result of this experience. We are thankful God continues to use SMI to call people to serve in under resourced communities.
If you are a student in the Philadelphia area, we encourage you to seek out the fellowship and mentoring of MCO.
