The mission of the hospital is to provide health and hope to those who need it most.

Q & A with missionaries:

1. What are some roles that interns could take on while serving with your team?

At the hospital we have a 17-acre campus with 32 buildings and therefore there are a variety of roles that interns could fill that would be a blessing to us. Here is a list of several: Children’s Ministry Worker, Administrative Assistant, English Teacher, Healthcare Worker (Physician, PA, RNP, Midwife, RN, Lab Techs, X-ray Techs, Ultrasound Tech, Pharmacist, Pharmacy Tech), Healthcare Student, Auto Mechanic, Diesel Mechanic, Construction, Electrician, Carpenter, Cement Worker or Bricklayer, Radio or Media Tech and more!

2. What are some ministry tasks that you want the intern to accomplish while serving with you?

One of the interns’ tasks is to be learning some of the local and national languages (Lingala, Aka, or French). They assist with various aspects of our dynamic hospital-based, radio, community health ministry. Nursing students or medical professionals who serve with us will have inpatient rounds, outpatient visits and other daily tasks as well as be on call for emergencies and problems.  We can discuss projects for other interns with different skillsets. All interns will participate in church-planting, discipleship, worship, prayer, and revival.

3. What else would you like potential interns to know about the hospital?

Our team is a combination of ex-pat volunteers and paid Congolese staff and we provide a full spectrum of services 24/7 including: Obstetrics, Medicine/Pediatrics, Surgery, Consultation, Laboratory, Medical Imaging, Pharmacy, Chaplaincy, Administration, Maintenance, and Security.

Conditions commonly treated include malaria, sexually-transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, meningitis, monkey pox and other infectious diseases. Less exotic conditions including pregnancy, hernia, hypertension, gastritis, diabetes, trauma, and other diagnoses are also commonplace.

The hospital aims to offer healing to the whole person, integrating physical, social, and spiritual treatment as needed. As a result, Pioneer Christian Hospital is having a positive impact on the mortality and morbidity of the entire region through the medical, surgical, and chaplaincy services provided.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

ACTION seeks to please Christ, the Builder and Head of the Church, by conducting our ministries closely with local churches for the advancement and building up of the Body of Christ with the view that all believers will grow in maturity becoming more and more like Christ with the hope that some become pastors, evangelists, teachers, and others cross-cultural missionaries (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 4:4-16).

If the participant is going for less than six months, they will receive mentoring and coaching by someone on our Mobilization Team and also work through pre-field reading material and assignments. If the applicant is going longer than six months, they will participate in an in-person orientation and a separate in-person cross-cultural training course before deploying to the field. They will also have to be able to communicate in French, so French classes are recommended. All participants will have a debrief interview with the person from our Mobilization Department who mentored and coached them before and during their time of service. They will also be asked to fill out a post-trip evaluation form to help them process their experience and next steps and provide our home office and field missionaries helpful feedback for sending future short-term workers.
