About Heaven in Healthcare

A place for Christians working in the health sector to connect, learn, and be inspired to release heaven wherever they go.

The Power of a Common Dream

At the age of 15 I decided that I wanted to become a doctor and give my life to enabling others to live as healthily and productively as possible. At the age of 16 I became a Christian and the idea of excellent medical practice being supplemented by the resources of heaven at work through Christians excited me beyond measure.

When I started medical school this excitement had grown into a life passion and dream so I started to explore the ways in which it could be expressed. As I progressed through my medical career I saw God work through me in the workplace; miracles of healings; creating atmospheres of peace, hope and joy amongst some of the most challenging circumstances. Creative wisdom, encouragement and discernment all flowing through the activity of the Holy Spirit has always been the normal potential of Christianity – God at work in and through us to bless the world.

Imagine if that was the dream and experience of every Christian working in the arena of Healthcare, what a difference we could make in the world. This is the heart of Heaven in Healthcare, the power of a common dream, and we are starting to see this reality unfold as we equip and train Christians to realise their full potential.

It is a very exciting journey to be part of and we believe that Health Provision in many nations will be enhanced as we move forward together to release Heaven in Healthcare.
