All travel to Guatemala is currently suspended due to COVID-19
We are monitoring the situation and keeping our upcoming teams informed
If you are interested in booking a medical mission for 2021, we are continuing to process applications at this time
Medical missions treat injuries and common illnesses – but also provide opportunities to pray for the patients! By experiencing the love of Christ in this tangible way, many begin the journey of coming to know the everlasting love of Jesus Christ
Who can go?
We have Medical Mission opportunities for individuals with medical or dental training, such as:
- Nurse practitioners
- Dental hygienists
Spanish is an asset, but is not required. Impact Ministries provides translators for our medical practitioners.
When a Medical Mission Team consisting of at least 2-3 individuals with medical or dental training is formed, other support personnel are welcome to join the team as well.
What will we do?
You will provide much needed health care in our clinic, at our schools, or in remote mountain villages surrounding Tactic, Guatemala. Medical clinics take place five days a week, with opportunities for outreach activities in the evenings and on the weekends.
Health care may include:
- treating injuries & common illnesses
- wellness checks & screenings
- dental care
- vision care
- healthy living instruction
- illness prevention
Impact Ministries has been hosting medical missions from across Canada since the year 2000. Once a medical team has been formed, we work with the team leader to develop a ministry agenda that uses the team’s unique gifting and abilities. For more information, please fill out an interest form

How can I go?
You can form your own team, or contact us to be connected with ongoing medical teams. We may also be able to arrange for you to spend some time serving in the Clinic if you are a medical practitioner coming with a non-medical Impact team.
