Lakewood Church
Lakewood
Church of Houston, Texas will host a conference that expects around
2,000 people in attendance that aims at getting people involved in
medical mission work in February.
Known as
the Mobilizing Medical Missions Conference, the event is organized by
Dr. Paul Osteen, brother to megachurch pastor and author Joel Osteen.
 This will be the second year the medical missions conference is held at
Lakewood. 

“M3 Conference is designed to bring together doctors,
nurses, dentists, and other healthcare professionals, as well as anyone
who has a desire to use their skills to meet pressing global healthcare
needs,” noted the Conference’s website.

 “Hear
from experts in the field of global health and be inspired by men and
women who are in the trenches, often in resource-limited settings, doing
what they can to make a difference in people’s lives.”
In
comments given to The Christian Post, Dr. Osteen noted that last year’s
conference had about 1,700 attendees and that they hoped to surpass that
number in February.

“We have only made a few changes from the
first year, mainly in the schedule to allow conference goers more time
in the Exhibit Hall to visit with the various mission organizations and
hospitals who will be exhibiting,” said Osteen.

“We have
an incredible line-up of speakers including medical professionals from
various mission organizations and hospitals from around the world, as
well as other organizations like World Vision and A21.”

Speakers scheduled for the conference include World
Vision President Rich Stearns, A21 and Propel Women founder Christine
Caine, Hope Smiles Executive Director Caleb Magnino, and Summit Leaders
founder Joël Malm, among others.

The
conference will begin on the evening of Friday, Feb. 17 and conclude on
the evening of Saturday, Feb. 18. Both days will feature breakout
sessions on assorted topics pertaining to medical mission work.

Topics include challenges for mission hospitals, disaster response nursing, dental missions, earthquake injuries, and cardiac surgery in Sub-Saharan Africa.
When
asked by CP what he wanted conference attendees to take away from the
multiday event, Osteen replied that the “purpose of the M3 Conference is
for attendees to connect with others, to be inspired, and to find their
mission.”

“You don’t have to look far to see that there are
people in need all over the world. Because of the overwhelming needs
around us, one can easily wonder how they can make a real difference,”
said Osteen.

“My hope is that conference attendees will learn how
much of a difference they can truly make, and then, take the next step
to say ‘yes’ to do something to help someone in need.”
