The Missions office of CMC, Vellore seeks to equip health professionals and institutions to be an effective witness for the Lord Jesus Christ in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and in the healing ministry.
The Missions office CMC, Vellore works towards the transformation of the institutions by developing health professionals who can effectively communicate the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and can administer excellent health care.
The concept of missions has two important facets – The people and the institutions. While for many years the concept of missions was inevitably linked to people working in an institution which has a mission focus, it is also important to note that there is a paradigm shift in this matter. Missions equally involves people who have a mission focus working in diverse environments – private sector, government sectors and other kinds of institutions in India and abroad. Keeping these two factors in view, the core objectives for the mission’s office are as follows.
- To develop people with mission focus by investing in their lives while they are in CMC, so that wherever they are they will be an effective witness for the Lord Jesus Christ.
- To familiarise our staff and students with the mission hospitals and the needs of various missions.
- To care, nurture and co-ordinate with mission hospitals.
