The Foundation for Building World-Visionary, World-Impacting, Reproducing Disciples

The typical Christian is unemployed as far as Christ’s standard of employment is concerned, and the typical employed Christian is often under-employed, spending much time and effort in activities that show very little result in reaching and building people. We must declare ourselves independent of tradition and find out what the New Testament tells us about ourselves and our God-given assignment. It is my prayer that God will disturb and arouse us through these pages to new perception, new participation, and new productivity in fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord. – Introduction to “Tally Ho the Fox!”, by Herb Hodges

CERT exists to serve people in dire need of health care. We GO where there is little if any help available, which often takes us into extremely remote locations.

By ministering to physical needs, doors are opened for our teams to minister to spiritual needs thus fulfilling the Great Commission, “…Go and make disciples of all nations…”– Matthew 28: 19-20

WHO WE ARE

CERT (Christian Emergency Relief Teams) International is A 501(c)3 Christian non-profit. Our foundation is organizing and leading short-term medical mission teams. Our ministry model follows the Life of Jesus. We “go” to care for the physical needs and preach the Gospel.

OUR MISSION:

Provide physical and spiritual care to the poor and suffering with the love of Jesus.

WHAT WE DO:
  • Organize and lead medical mission teams
  • Provide compassionate medical and dental services to the world’s poor and suffering
  • Distribute food, clothing, medicines, and Christian literature
  • Assist in church planting, growth and development
SINCE 1974

… we have served in 41 different countries

HOW WE DO IT:

As a serve and assist organization, we come-along-side Christian nationals who are already doing good works in their communities to support them and preach the Gospel. This model has forged some strong partnerships, providing opportunities to establish and help finance life sustaining programs for the needy.
