Dr. Jerry Childs, Medical Director. Jerry was raised in a Christian home in a small town outside of Tulsa, OK. As he grew up, the only profession he ever wanted to be involved in was medicine. Early in his career, God led him to go on a medical mission trip and it changed his life. That opened the door to go on even more trips and serve in areas where there was no other medical care available. His heart has expanded to also serve in free medical clinics here in the US aimed at those who have access to little or no medical care. Jerry states, “I believe that to those who are greatly blessed, much is expected and I try to give of my time and talents to further the spread of the good news of Jesus Christ and to bring comfort to those who suffer.”
