Our Mission

To share Jesus through providing medical and dental care

Our Story

Years ago, what was once a dream on the mission field in Brazil for Sharon Fairchild, now Brentwood Baptist’s Mission Journey Minister, has today become a reality.

2011

Sharon Fairchild, Brentwood Baptist’s Mission Journey Minister, had long carried a dream with her, born from her time on the mission field in Brazil. She submitted a proposal to leadership and Trustees at Brentwood Baptist for a mobile medical/dental unit to be used as an evangelism tool. Without hesitation, they gave her the green light—and it’s been one “GO” after the other since then.

God orchestrated every step. People caught the vision. Within two months of ordering it, the MDU was paid for and delivered to our campus in the fall. The volunteer team immediately jumped into a few trial-run clinics to get their bearings and test out how the MDU would best work.

After the official commissioning and launch, the team has established policies and procedures. However, they’re always refining and navigating the responsibilities they hold as medical and dental providers to those they encounter.

What It Is

It’s a 40-foot evangelism tool—a mobile unit customized to provide free, limited medical and dental care to those in need all over Middle Tennessee. It functions under the direction of Amy Fairchild, MDU Coordinator and Family Nurse Practitioner, and a dedicated support team of volunteers.

The purpose of the MDU is simple: it’s a tangible way to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with people through medical and dental services. We go and serve because He told us to. We love others because He first loved us.

Who We Are

  1. Volunteer providers—made up of medical and dental professionals—who offer medical screenings, dental extractions, and dental fluoride treatments.
  2. An organization that partners with churches and other religious organizations to aid in efforts to reach their communities for Christ
