Who we are
The Luke Society is an interdenominational Christian ministry that works internationally with indigenous medical professionals to bring healing and hope through Jesus Christ. We support and empower nationals as they serve the Lord among their own people within their own language and culture.
What we do:
The Luke Society comes alongside Christian medical professionals in their own countries by offering encouragement, prayers, mentoring and financial support. These visionaries have a passion to better the physical, social and spiritual health of their communities.
What we don’t do:
We do not send doctors, missionaries or work groups from the United States to our international locations to conduct projects or provide medical care. We empower and encourage citizens in their own countries, which promotes human dignity, local skills and sustainable infrastructure.
How we do it:
The Luke Society is rooted in a steadfast philosophy that in order to transform lives we must first equip visionaries who have God-given passions and desires to improve their own communities. We do not do the work for them nor do we seek to direct their passions or visions. We come alongside ministries as a family, developing long-term relationships of mentoring, networking and encouragement.
The medical work we do:
Medical needs are different from one part of the world to the next. This is evident in the variety of medical services offered at our international ministries. Some ministries conduct complex surgeries and medical procedures, while others reach out through community health initiatives and health education.
The Christian mission:
Everything we do at the Luke Society is evangelistically focused with Jesus Christ as our foundation’s Solid Rock. Our ministry is based on the model Jesus gave us in Matthew 9:35: “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Good News of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.” Click to read our statements of faith.
