On Saturday and Sunday February 27-28 IHI Tulsa will host the second annual gathering of missional residents and faculty. This was an idea proposed by Dr. Todd Stephens of Wichita Via Cristi in discussions with Dr. Chuck Cheatham and Nathan Cook of Memphis Resurrection Health to gather missional residents and faculty from a few Family Medicine residencies. Last year over 120 people participated from Tulsa, Memphis, Wichita, Ft Worth, Springfield, Waco, Oklahoma City. This year we also will invite Peoria, Illinois and a maybe a few others, too.
The meeting is to discuss, pray, worship, pray for the purpose of casting vision for 15 of the least reached, least engaged people groups on the planet. And pray some more! The name for the gathering is “Priority 15” and some info is online at www.priority15.org. This year we will skip the “strategy small groups” we did last time but add discussions about vision trips, medical missions methods and preparation, and also have a medical missionary physician from Frontiers and from Pioneers.
Cost is free but anyone who comes is invited to make a contribution to cover the cost of the meals and snacks. By February 15 please let me know how many from your group will be coming so we can plan meals. And we may have some free host homes for the first ones who request such. Others who prefer a hotel may get a $79 rate (until February 5 deadline or room block fills) via this link to Hampton Inn Woodland Hills Tulsa.
The main gathering will begin Saturday morning at 9.30a and conclude Sunday morning by 11.30a and held at In His Image in Tulsa:
7501 S. Riverside Parkway
St. John Clinic Family Medical Care, 7501 S. Riverside Parkway, Tulsa, OK. (75th & Riverside)
