Partnership Ministry Team Members


 Partnership Ministry Teams are made up of Christian health and business professionals from North America who build relationships with Luke Society directors and ministries across the world to impact God’s Kingdom. The volunteer groups assist a specific Luke Society ministry through prayer, advisory services and financial support. PMTs offer encouragement and guidance to Christian visionaries as they establish and develop their ministries.
