Who We Are

Dr. Kent & Amber Brantly

About Dr. Kent & Amber Brantly

Before they were married, Kent and Amber shared a calling to share the love of God through tangible service and to have compassion on those in need. This calling led them to serve as medical missionaries in Monrovia, Liberia, with Samaritan’s Purse after Kent completed his training in Family Medicine.

In 2014, after joining the fight against the Ebola outbreak, Kent was diagnosed with Ebola virus disease. He became the first person with Ebola to be treated in the United States when he was evacuated to Emory University Hospital. Kent and Amber were overwhelmed and grateful for the prayers and support they received from millions around the world during Kent’s illness and recovery.

With their story at the forefront of international news, the Brantlys spent the following years advocating for the plight of those continuing to suffer from Ebola in West Africa. In 2016, Kent returned to clinical medicine and the Brantlys found their new normal in Fort Worth, Texas.

After 5 years of recovery, local service, and longing to return to their original calling, the Brantlys are returning to the continent of Africa with their two children. They will be working at Mukinge Mission Hospital in northwestern Zambia, seeking to follow the example of Jesus, having compassion on the sick and outcast, proclaiming “the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”

“O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples.
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wonderful works.”
-Psalm 105

Reserve Corps Application

Our Reserve Corps program allows healthcare professionals seeking to volunteer short-term to do so in a way that supports long-term Christian medical missions work. CHSC places healthcare professionals in a growing list of Christian hospitals across Africa, Asia, Latin America and other regions. Christian Health Service Corps works to improve access to primary healthcare, surgical services, and community-based disease prevention services. Non-Christian volunteers are accepted on a case by case basis but solely at the discretion of the hospital and CHSC team the volunteer will be supporting.

Faith Questions

Christian Health Service Corps staff are missionary medical professionals, but we do invite our non-Christian colleagues to join our effort to bring quality healthcare to the poor at the discretion of mission hospital and CHSC staff at the facility. Every volunteer is expected to follow the hospital dress code, where there is one, and code of conduct.
