“INSPIRED BY A VISION, FOCUSED ON A MISSION, ROOTED IN KINGDOM VALUES”

Vision

We envision a movement of God’s people who choose daily to promote healing in marginalized communities in the name of Jesus.

Mission

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.

Values

• Supremacy of Christ: Honoring the Lordship of Christ and submitting ourselves to his authority and person. • Prophetic Voice: Challenging God’s people to choose to go against the status quo; to be incarnational, sacrificial, and to enter into the suffering of the poor. • Wholistic Care: Encouraging excellent, compassionate health care, ministering to spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of people and their communities. • Reconciliation: Restoring right relationships to God, to one another, and to all of creation, addressing barriers that commonly divide, including race, social status, and economic oppression. • Justice: Working toward God’s kingdom, setting all things right for the oppressed, the forgotten, and particularly the marginalized in our health care system. • Partnership: Listening to and working alongside churches, patients, our communities, and one another.

The Role of CCHF

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 through..

1.

Relational Network

2.

National & Regional Events

3.

Students & Residents

4.

Publications

5.

www.cchf.org

The most powerful thing about CCHF is the actual community. It is real and relational. We share our experiences and insights and help one another. We help members of this movement find one another and connect in meaningful ways that honors Christ and advances His cause.

The most visible of these is the CCHF conference - a 3-day event with inspiring speakers, informative workshops, and opportunities to network. Christian leaders and pioneers are available to newcomers to both share and to listen to the new voices in this community.

Through collaborative relationships with groups like CMDA, MCO and InterVarsity, CCHF practitioners speak to campus groups at over 100 campuses every year. We provide clinical experiences through preceptor and internship programs in Christian clinics. And we help residents find placements at clinics where they can integrate faith with clinical care for the medically underserved.

CCHF publishes books like Upholding the Vision and Faith in the Trenches, podcasts like CCHF|Talk, newsletters, and other literature that gives voice to those in our community who help us stay fruitful and effective in living out the gospel through healthcare among those who are poor.

The CCHF website is a “toolshed” where participants in the movement share resources to help you grow in conviction and ability to fulfill your calling in healthcare. It is constantly growing as the community adds content, and the dialogue progresses as we grapple with what it means to live out the gospel through healthcare among the poor.

A CULTURE OF PRAYER “I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Matt 18.1920) Prayer is a tangible admission that we are dependent on God. It is perhaps the greatest way to grow in our intimacy with Him through Christ, and without doubt, the most important thing we do at this conference. Take advantage of our time together to pray with one another, pay attention to God’s presence and His leading, and make space for prayer throughout the conference.

Here are some prayer opportunities: • Corporate Prayer during the plenary sessions. These will be led by people on stage and will give us time to pray for one another. • Prayer Team. After plenary sessions and throughout the conference members of the “Prayer Team” are available to pray for and with you. These are select, trusted, balanced Christians who will be wearing Prayer Team t-shirts. They have already been praying for you, and are ready to stand with you as you respond to God’s word and the Spirit’s conviction.

“…the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express… the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.” “Christ Jesus, who died--more than that, who was raised to life-is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” (Rom 8:26-27,34)

• Pray with others. Please pray with one another! Pray with those you already know and those you are meeting for the first time. We are all discovering what it means to live out the gospel as a community, and it is almost never inappropriate for us to pray for one another. We look forward to hearing how God has met you at the conference, how he used you in the lives of others, and how He used others to speak to you.

These are talks designed to spark a dialogue and help you think just a little out of the box. It’s the perfect way to start your conference experience.

Leading a faith-based organization is different. The way faith informs our leadership style, decision making processes, and our priorities makes our jobs unique. This gathering of executives of Christian health organizations is an opportunity to connect with new leaders and reconnect with old friends who understand the pressures and joys of stewarding both “mission” and “margin”. This session is designed to allow us to both share and listen to one another, as we discuss in group and open formats some of the key challenges and opportunities that confront us in this critical time in the development of our organizations and our movement.

Hosted by Jonathan Wildt, (Lawndale,Chicago) & Lance Luttrell (Christ Community, Memphis).

A New Online Spirituality and Resource for Behavioral Health Training Your Clinical Practice: Staff on Whole Using Spiritual Person & Spiritual Interventions Care- Part 1

Dave Tellez Paul Lorentsen Gary Plooster

John Boll

Ana Wong-McDonald

The management of pain in underserved communities is challenging as providers strive to bring healing. This challenge is more pronounced with recent paradigm changes in pain management where opioids are no longer recommended in deference to non-opioid alternatives. This session covers principles in regards to pain treatment, including the prevention of pain and addiction, harm reduction, and methods to maximize non-opioid alternatives for pain management. It addresses the new challenges providers face in the wake of the current opioid crisis by reviewing cases highlighting unique aspects of acute and chronic, non-malignant pain treatment. Audience members will work through cases in small groups and then participate in a follow up discussion.

Spiritual interventions are powerful tools in recovery. Such interventions were used in a spirituality group at an inner-city psychosocial rehabilitation program such that 100% of the participants achieved their treatment goals consistently over 3 years. This seminar will 1) introduce research on the relationship between spirituality and mental health, 2) describe the spirituality group as an example, and 3) address how to implement spiritual interventions in the process of transforming persons in Christ. This workshop will explore the who, what, why, and how of using spiritual interventions. Assessment tools and case examples will be discussed.

CCHF partner, The Neighborhood Christian Clinic in Phoenix, has developed a Spiritual/Whole Person Care curriculum designed to teach healthcare professionals how to deliver whole person and spiritual care in healthcare settings. Five courses deal with Biblical, ethical, legal and scientific issues concerning Spiritual Care as well as practical ways to implement it. This session introduces the curriculum by demonstrating Course One of the five course series. The Curriculum will be available online to all CCHF members.

Paul Lorentsen Gary Plooster

This is a “How-We-GotHere” overview of the current opioid epidemic. This workshop looks at the science and history of the epidemic to bring better understanding and to sift through fact and urban legend. It will discuss recovery and treatment approaches, highlight the importance of connection in recovery, and the role that Christian health centers and churches can play in restoring lives wrecked by this pandemic. Led by experts in addiction and recovery who have been active in Ohio’s state-wide efforts to address this crisis, the presenters will discuss strategies of collaborative partnerships, the role of faith in the continuum of care, and ways for local churches to engage the problem siting examples from other communities.

There are limited numbers of HIV providers nationwide. Stigma is a leading cause of AIDSrelated death and can be particularly strong in many churches. Are you interested in treating HIV and addressing how to impact the church to combat HIV-related stigma? This workshop will dive into the epidemiology of HIV in the U.S., updates in HIV care and treatment, and discuss development of HIV treatment program within an FQHC and steps to address stigma in the community and in churches.

It would be difficult to overstate the role that John Perkins has had in inspiring and directing the movement of Christians towards living out the gospel through healthcare among those who are poor and marginalized. He is the father of Christian community development and the co-founder of CCHF. In this moderated discussion led by Takesha Leonard, NP, Dr. John Perkins will talk to those disciples who are willing to take the lead in a movement to bring healing to marginalized communities in the name of Jesus. He will discuss the central role the gospel must play in seeing real change through our efforts to engage communities of need, and how we should demonstrate as well as declare that gospel.

The increasingly stressful healthcare environment limits clinicians’ ability to provide whole-person care that considers the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of those with chronic disabling illness. Spiritual care teams have been shown to help clinicians stay efficient and provide quality spiritual care at the same time in a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient, secular and faith-based care environments. In this seminar, the author of CMDA’s popular Grace Prescriptions course will describe an exciting way for Christian health professionals to form teams to provide whole-person care in most any healthcare environment and the capacity to increase the quality of patient care.

Barriers to providing care, the brokenness of our healthcare system, the difficulty of our daily work, non-compliant patients, EMR – the list goes on. These are the things that challenge our love for our patients and our work, and test our resilience. Recontextualizing our work as worship, and offering it as a sacrifice of suffering on the altar of pride, can serve as an antidote to the burn out that plagues the modern practice of medicine. When we acknowledge our weakness and suffering, we open the floodgates of heaven to fill us with the strength of God. Ultimately the Lord is glorified, we are strengthened, and our community is blessed by God’s power made manifest in our weakness.

What makes marriage work? Why do couples get divorced when they have the same problems as couples who make it work and stay together? Divorce is at an epidemic proportion. The breakdown of the family creates one of the saddest times in families lives. Our Lord cries when this happens. We need to see past our misunderstandings and look to how we can fulfill the blessing of marriage. This session will help couples find a 3rd way to keep the promises they made to each other and to the Lord. We will review 6 rules of engagement that couples who last use, and work on exercises that increase your ability to understand your partner.

Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, fires. Disasters happen with little or no warning, and bring not only destruction, but chaos. Medical care during and after natural disasters requires special skill sets. God has placed people strategically to bring peace and healing in times of great tragedy and need. This session is a panel discussion on preparation and execution of operational and medical delivery during a natural disaster. Based on actual experience, a team of medical leaders will share about lessons they learned during super-storm Sandy and Hurricane Harvey. They will discuss preparations clinics have made before and since the disasters they encountered, and leave time for Q&A.

Most organizational leaders will tell you that their highest staff turnover rate is among support staff. Perhaps one reason is that support staff are often overlooked for their part in bringing value to the healthcare organization’s mission and ministry. In this session, Kyle Vath will lead a discussion about how recruiting, hiring, managing, discipling and developing support staff in your organization may be one of the most important tasks ministry leaders hold in ensuring that your mission flourishes.

Many students and young professionals want to be a part of pioneering medical work, but don’t know where to start. There are many resources available on the practical/business side of how to start a clinic. Even step-by-step guides on starting an FQHC, or fundraising, or how to choose a board. There is also a lot of information on the overall health and poverty statistics in our country. The problem is how to choose what city to go to and what to do when you get there. This session will seek to navigate both a Biblical approach to following God’s call and the practical ways of exploring the resources and needs of a city.

Sold on the value of integrated behavioral health services within your primary care clinic? What happens when there’s not enough behavioral health providers to go around, or you haven’t been able to hire any yet? Many care team members (including primary care providers) find themselves ill-equipped, under-trained, and unsure of how to best identify, treat, and manage behavioral health concerns within the fast-paced nature of primary care. This session is geared toward educating and equipping multidisciplinary care team members without specialized behavioral health training to effectively deliver brief interventions and adopt practical treatment strategies.

The sin of idolatry is hard to ignore during medical school -- desiring the best education, the most knowledge, the best grades, entrance to a top residency program, popularity, respect, comfort. Praise Jesus that the Gospel offers so much more than that, and for the accountability that the Body of Christ (including the CCHF network!) provides. Come hear the stories of four very imperfect medical students as they pursue a perfect God and His commandment to make disciples of all nations.

Healthcare providers are familiar with an evidencebased practice model which promotes clinical decision making based on empirical evidence and expert opinion. You are likely very familiar with resources which synthesize the best evidence for patient care, but where do you start when you want to reach outside the walls of your clinic? How do you know what works best to improve the health of neighborhoods and communities? In this session, we will explore two web-based resources which synthesize evidence-based approaches to improving population health.

There are those in your church who genuinely want to do more to care for the poor, stranger, widow, and orphan, but they don’t understand what to do or where to start. This is the story of a program that has helped transform a suburban church in Western Michigan by helping them engage their vulnerable neighbors. They spend alternate weeks off-site listening to & serving the poor, and other weeks studying, processing and connecting. Topics include the Biblical mandate to serve, racism, and helping without hurting. The program ends with a retreat focused on the next steps God wants them to take. This presentation will lead you through a process that you can replicate it in your church. Study materials, resources and templates will be shared.

Physicians are uncomfortable dealing with opioid misuse and addiction. Continuing the opioids and abruptly stopping them are both bad choices. This panel discussion will explore how three clinics are addressing the national opioid crisis in their day-to-day interactions with their patients. The panel will cover tools to recognize misuse and addiction and present interventions including pharmacotherapy. The last help of the program will be devoted to learning how to communicate nonjudgmentally but without enabling the patient to continue their misuse or addiction. This portion will be case-based with audience participation. The speaker will share how he shares the gospel in a nonsectarian setting in a manner that is acceptable and also sees patients connecting with the gospel and local churches.

Jesus doesn’t command us to just make converts, but to make disciples. Still, how do you do that practically — particularly as it relates to working in healthcare? This seminar will provide a simple, yet holistic model for evangelism, discipleship, and leadership development today — to help people move from skeptic to world-changer.

Yes, this is a thing - and it has been a game-changer for a number of Christian clinics. This seminar focuses on leadership dynamics and change needed to lead a clinic through the process of becoming a Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike designee. We will walk clinic leadership through how to successfully help your staff and board make the transition. Baptist Community Health Services, New Orleans, will share from its experience as a 3-year old clinic in making a successful conversion to a FQHC LAL. Highlights will include transitioning your board; organizing key staff to help you, communicating with all your staff about the strategic direction you are moving toward as an FQHC candidate, and more.

You know that you’ve been called to serve in the inner-city. However you sometimes wonder how you can effectively serve in a community whose culture may be quite different from the one that you have always known. This workshop will utilize discussion and case study illustrations to provide practical steps that we can take to better understand the culture, and engage more fully, with the community that we have been called to serve as urban missionaries.

God desires us to be fruitful, effective, visionary disciples for His glory and our joy. That is our norm. So when we feel fruitless, ineffective, and blind, we need to know how to rebound. This session will help instruct those new to this type of ministry, who are excited about entering into the field of missional medicine, and it will encourage those who have been at this a while and who are weary from years of labor. Robert Campbell, co-founder of Christ Community Health Services of Augusta, will share from God’s word and discuss his experiences of over 10 years of healthcare ministry among the poor in Augusta, Georgia.

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) commonly occur across demographics in our society, resulting in an array of physical, psychological, spiritual, and community consequences. To this end, effective identification and management of ACEs is particularly crucial within the primary care context, often an entry point for healthcare for vulnerable children and families. The current workshop will afford participants an overview of a foundational ACEs study and offer insights into mechanisms for addressing ACEs from a holistic health perspective. Further, the workshop will encourage ongoing dialogue regarding opportunities for growth within the primary care environment.

As CCHF transitions into the new healthcare environment, a new generation of pioneers are ready to bring shape and growth to this movement. Come and hear how these emerging leaders are applying established principles of living out the gospel through healthcare among the poor. Several of these young physician leaders are in the midst of startups. Others are still in their training, but with clear ideas of what it means to serve Christ missionally through medicine. Attendees, too, can become emerging leaders and pioneers-men and women who will bring glory to God, expand the Kingdom of Jesus, encourage the wider Church, and bring healthcare equity to our marginalized neighbors.

While we may not be able to “fix” the immigration challenges on a federal level, we all have the opportunity to advocate and act on a local level. Goshen, IN is a small town with a surprisingly large Hispanic community. Center for Healing & Hope, a Christian charitable clinic that serves this marginalized population, engaged in a collaborative process to offer and produce “Goshen Resident Identification Cards” (GRID) in response to the challenges that immigrants currently face. This session will utilize the 6 CCHF Principles of Christian Health Care to share the story of how this project came about, the initial implementation challenges, and current status of this project, in the Christian effort to create “community for all”.

Does modern medicine eliminate and ignore the place for spirituality and spiritual care? Is there evidence that spirituality, and Biblical spiritual disciplines in particular, has an affect on health outcomes? This session will first look at current evidence surrounding the effect of spirituality on health. The second half will provide some practical tools and practices that you as health care worker can employ and empower your patients to practice that will lead to true transformation of their health and their lives. This workshop is appropriate for providers and support staff at all levels.

How do we overcome our tepid half-hardheartedness to being a faithful and true witness of Christ Jesus in His work of healing, restoration and health? Both individuals and local churches struggle in the desire to commit to bold transformations for the implementation of God’s health agenda. The struggle to create a mission driven culture is real but not insurmountable. We invite anyone vested in Christian healing communities to join us in reflecting on how we can embrace major reformation, renewal, and investments in promoting the physical and spiritual healing felt needs of our communities.

Medicine often shifts students away from their first calling to serve. For the believer our calling to serve is for the Master, who, according to Eph 2:10 says, “for we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which He prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Faith can guide us through the turbulent waters of medical training. Direction in life, direction in faith expression, values that guide us all through our faith, and being able to correctly and spiritually be a man or woman of principle and not people who are pragmatic like so many in society, medicine and life. Realign your thinking to the service aligned with the Scriptures.

We all enter our faith with the hope that our lives will get better, and that we’ll impart the blessings of life in Christ to those we serve and serve alongside. However, somewhere along the way the dream can become disappointing, frustrating, tedious, discouraging, and even broken. How can we pick back up and continue to grow and enjoy life while resisting and recovering from life’s setbacks? Will God fix us and the situations we find ourselves in, or is brokenness our inevitable destination? This session will help you make a biblical/clinical analysis of your condition, and apply lessons from others and our own history to rediscover the enduring Hope that we are meant to enjoy in Christ.

Good Samaritan Health Services-Tulsa is a nationally recognized leader in utilizing mobile medical vans for over a decade. Many in underserved populations often face difficulties accessing quality care; transportation to a fixed base clinic, fear of discovery for undocumented persons, or impersonal care provided by public health clinics. Attendees will gain knowledge of the value (and challenges) of utilizing mobile medical vans to provide healthcare to a number of populations not all located in one place. Furthermore understanding the cost and requirements of doing medical care on the road, and learning the keys to success in using mobile medical vans for ministry.

Many believers do not get the full benefit of the gift of life, which is our own, because we have not adopted a life practice that effectively moves us toward healing of emotional wounds and disappointments, while at the same time forgetting much good that we were intended to consciously keep. This workshop will reflect on a few profound portions of scripture, inviting the Holy Spirit to help us unpack our own life narratives in such a way as to move us toward further emotional healing and wholeness, to better equip us for our present/ future. Additionally it will help us mark and recall the “ Ebeneezer “ moments of our lives.

As managers and leaders we need to go beyond cultural facts, cultural knowledge, and ethnic diversity for the sake of diversity. It is critical that we ask, “Is our diversity inclusive? Are people identified beyond their job titles?” This session is an invitation to have an honest and real conversation about what it means to be the type of leader with whom minority groups have a desire to work, having leadership reflect the community it serves, and leading the organization to its best expression of God’s diversity as a gift to our community and to one another.

Oral Health Matters: Integrating Oral Health Education into the Practice of Medicine

Ana WongMcDonald

Angel Gates

The stigma of mental illness is still very real in the church. Few are able to speak openly about it or know what to do to assist those who need help. It is up to us to help church leaders better understand congregants and parishioners with mental illness and know how to minister to them. This session will define what mental illness is, explore how the church responds to people with mental disorders, present survey results from churches in Los Angeles (CA) County, and discuss action steps that churches can implement to minister to congregants with mental health needs. Tools and resources will be shared.

San Francisco City Impact Health & Wellness is a free clinic in the Tenderloin district of downtown San Francisco serving the city’s homeless and marginally housed residents. Dr. Clifford Lau will share about their unique patient demographic and tailored healthcare delivery model. He will also share transparently about lessons learned through patient stories, clinical experiences, and the intersection of real life and healthcare ministry weaved through 3 themes: 1) Running ahead of God, 2) What is money? and 3) How to call it quits.

Bruce Miller James Brooks

Oral health is an integral part of total body health, but we have been conditioned to think of oral health as a separate phenomenon. This session was designed to educate health center administrative and support staff on how to successfully transform one’s thinking to incorporate oral health education into the patient’s medical visit and into community health initiatives. This will be achieved by assisting non-medical staff with understanding the mouth/ body connection, as well as, identifying the oral health determinants to optimal health. Attendees will leave confident in discussing oral health concerns, as well as, initiating the appropriate oral health referrals for patients.

In 1976 John Perkins began teaching a framework for ministry in low income communities known as the “Three R’s”: Relocation, Reconciliation, and Redistribution. Are they still a valid framework for us to use today, 42 years later? We think so. In this workshop you will learn how we at Lawndale Christian Health Center still utilize the “Three R’s” as core values for guiding our work. Might the “Three R’s help your organization? This workshop will help you ponder creating core values and clear frameworks for creating an effective ministry.

The present political climate comes as a shock to many of us who have fought for years to see a more just health care system and who have committed to help aliens, refugees and asylee seekers in this country. What does this mean to the poorest and most vulnerable among us, and what should followers of Jesus do? This session will explore the rich tradition of Biblical advocacy on behalf of the poorest and most vulnerable throughout history. What does advocacy mean for us today? What does it mean to have a prophetic voice? How can we make a difference not just providing good care to individuals but also advocating for a more just society that reflects the Kingdom of God?

WORKSHOPS Breakout 6 Developing A Healthy Team: 5 Key Behaviors

Addressing & Assessing the Spiritual Needs of Patients: How to Take a Spiritual History

Am I Qualified? The Joy & Struggle to Follow the Call to Ministry in Healthcare.

Steve Sartori

Bob Mason

Janet Aguirre Katie Huff

Healthy leadership teams are necessary for any successful healthcare organization. With the evolution of healthcare delivery, clinical teams have gained importance as well. Team performance is a product of competent leadership and member engagement, founded on relational trust. This presentation will describe five behaviors critical for the creation of a cohesive team, and help attendees become better leaders and team members.

Have you longed to integrate your Christian faith into your patient care – both on the mission field abroad and in your work at home? Most patients want their healthcare professional to be sensitive to their spiritual needs during illness. Yet, the vast majority of healthcare professionals do not know how to assess and address these need and fewer still actually provide this aspect of care in their patient care. Not sure how to do this in a caring, sensitive, and relevant manner? This “working” session will explore the ethical basis for spiritual care plus provide you with profession, timely, and practical methods to care for the whole person in the clinical setting.

Token Diversity God is Active and or True Diversity: Working. How Creating Faithful Servants Space for Are Responding Dignity in Your Organization to His Call

Chauncey Shillow

Jeff Zsohar

You don’t have to have an MD or MBA to be used by God. God calls us all to be missional in the way we approach our jobs, and every other area of our lives. Janet Aguirre and Katie Huff, a medical assistant and a registered nurse, will share stories and experiences. They never expected to be thrust into leadership roles at a grassroots homeless clinic, but offered their training and their path to honor Christ, and have learned/are learning what it means to live missionally. Doing work that is often unfamiliar with their training, God is using them and teaching them how to walk out the adventure of serving God’s purpose in one of the most broken communities in America.

Why does diversity matter in a Christian organization? Is there a biblical precedent for creating space for diversity at every level of leadership? How do you create space for diversity while acknowledging the dignity of every individual? Explore these questions and more through personal stories and biblical texts from the perspective of an African-American pastor of a multi-ethnic church.

“Everything is bigger in Texas” is true for many great things, but it is also applies to some sad realities: largest uninsured population in the country, greatest shortage of primary care providers, health disparities and unequal access to healthcare and resources - the list goes on. But God is working across Texas. Baylor Scott and White (BSWH), one of the biggest healthcare systems in Texas, has adopted “To care for all individuals…. as a Christian ministry of healing” as its mission. This session will look at innovative care programs, community care clinics, and collaborations to address social determinants of health that are happening in Texas’ largest metro center to address the physical, social and spiritual needs of their neighbors.

The more divided and spiritually confused our nation and world become and the more beyond social and political solutions our problems appear to grow, the more we find ourselves crying out with aching hearts, “How long O Lord will you wait? Rain your Holy Spirit on us and rescue, heal, and restore us! Bring us times of refreshing and revival!” Do we actually know what we’re asking for? And are we and our ministries prepared when the Lord answers in the affirmative? How can and should we be preparing now for an outpouring of grace in our communities in the foreseeable future? This session is not typical Sunday School lesson, but a call within our community to understand the times and know what we should do.

A growing body of psychological literature is placing emphasis on faith, meaning, and purpose as having significant roles in trauma outcomes, both positive and negative. The purpose of this workshop will be to increase the clinician’s understanding of the spiritual and mental health sequelae following traumatic events, how to navigate unique cultural and individual factors that can impact the healing process, and practical steps the clinician can take to improve resilience and growth before and after traumatic events.

There is so much joy when you know you are walking in God’s will. However, that joy can quickly dissipate when we run headlong into the realities of life. It is especially easy to become discouraged working in underserved areas. We can lose sight of what is important, and find ourselves wavering from our calling. Using concepts from Henri Nouwen’s Life of the Beloved, Dr. Thomas will exposit Luke 3-4 contrasting the sweet voice of our Father with the dark lies of the enemy. This timely message will encourage you to contemplate your motivation for serving in the hard places.

For 25 years, Crossroad Health Center has provided quality care to adult and pediatric patients in underresourced communities in and around Cincinnati. In 2016, Crossroad recognized the need for quality, wholistic prenatal care, and created a program model designed to impact the high infant mortality rate in their county. This session describes how they assessed the need, and implemented their prenatal care program in partnership with a family medicine residency, a for-profit hospital and a safety-net hospital. There will be a review of resources, and guidelines on negotiating strategic partnerships to insure quality in serving a high-risk underserved population.

The intensity of medical training and the pouring out of ourselves in medical practice can lead us to feel there is nothing left to give at home, in relationships or for personal self-care. Could our pursuit of “balance” be harmful, and could it be leading us away from Christ’s desire to unify all areas of our lives under his Lordship. During this highly interactive session, we will propose a reframing of the culturally popular idea of work-life balance.

Happy patients become healthy patients. They let us make their lives better, and they make our jobs a pleasure. But they rarely come that way. First encounters often can determine the patient’s experience. A simple yet overlooked component to maximizing patient satisfaction is the practice of great customer service skills. With such a heavy focus on improving the patient experience, this interactive session will focus on the various components of providing excellent customer service, even in challenging settings.

Scripture has much to say and show to us about how we can reflect the character and the heart of God in the provision of health care and in health care ministry. Specifically, we will look at the Biblical concepts of compassion, shalom, loving God and neighbor, and God’s design for us to be dependent upon Him. God transforms His people as they serve and reflect Him and His heart.

The increasingly stressful healthcare environment limits clinicians’ ability to provide whole-person care that considers the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of those with chronic disabling illness. Spiritual care teams have been shown to help clinicians stay efficient and provide quality spiritual care at the same time in a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient, secular and faith-based care environments. In this seminar, the author of CMDA’s popular Grace Prescriptions course will describe an exciting way for Christian health professionals to form teams to provide whole-person care in most any healthcare environment and the capacity to increase the quality of patient care.

In this panel discussion, a multi-disciplinary team from Lawndale Christian Health Center, Chicago, led by clinical psychologist, Kathryn McLean, will focus on the opportunities and challenges encountered in the development of Medically Assisted Treatment services for opioid and substance abuse patients, including 1) fostering a patient-centered approach to engaging patient’s needs and experiences 2) developing processes and capacity for interdisciplinary team members 3) showing and sharing the love of God through relational care.

The church is God’s therapeutic community, intended to minister healing to the nations (all types of people). Healing in the scriptures is always a holistic thing, which includes mental and behavioral health issues. Yet too often the church shies away from its mission when it comes to mental health, adding to the stigma instead of promoting healing. This session will walk through a pathway to establishing a mental health/licensed professional counseling ministry in local churches and in charitable medical clinics.

What does this mean to the poorest and most vulnerable among us, and what should followers of Jesus do?

What does it mean to have a prophetic voice? How can we make a difference not just providing good care to individuals but also advocating for a more just society that reflects the Kingdom of God?

This workshop is designed to be spiritually refreshing and encouraging for those growing weary or feeling burnt out. Drawing on many years of fighting the good fight of faith, Dr. Bob Paeglow, founder for Koinonia Primary Care in Albany, NY, will share testimony from his own life and ministry to illustrate principles that will help you to keep on keeping on. Rooted in Hebrews 12:2 “For the joy set before Him Jesus endured the cross”, participants will experience insight in how to cultivate joy in their ministry.

Bringing effective change to an organization requires a plan. Logic models provide a visual blueprint for how changes unfold and what expected changes may occur. They are useful for both new and existing programs and initiatives, as they can help clarify program strategies, identify appropriate targets, write effective grant proposals, and make planning time more efficient. This session will give participants an overview of a logic model and will walk through the steps of creating a picture of the steps needed to bring change. Participants will learn how logic models can be used during planning, implementation, and evaluation stages.

Your first board was likely recruited among your circle of acquaintances, rounding up those that would provide the support you felt was most needed at the time. Now you are growing. So is your staff, your budget, your need for space – and the need for some tough decisions. You need a different type of board member. This session addresses the critical process of board transition that happens when there is a mix of founding board members and newly recruited community members that may have a different expectation of what board membership means. How do you keep the new board members engaged? How do you temper the culture of entitledment that founding members sometimes bring to the table? How do you phase out board members that perhaps need to move on?

“We envision a movement of God’s people who choose daily to bring healing to marginalized communities in the name of Jesus.” This is your opportunity to meet with the leadership of CCHF to hear what is being done to strengthen and encourage this growing movement. Steve Noblett and Board members will share about the strengths and bottlenecks that affect those committed to living out the gospel through healthcare among the poor, and what we can do together to nurture and develop the Christian mission in healthcare in our nation.

CCHF Organizational Directory The list of clinics in this directory is only a partial list of the Christian clinics that make up the CCHF community. Over 300 Christian clinics serve under-resourced communities in the U.S. Hundreds of other ministries address health issues through screening, coaching and limited services. And thousands of other Christians are courageously living out the gospel while working in non-faith-based clinics. www.CCHF.org features a more complete directory of clinics that serve medically underserved populations in a distinctively Christian way. Don’t see your clinic in our directory? Our directory grows each week. Visit CCHF.org and tell us about your clinic so people across America can know what God is doing in your area.
