National Conference 2015

Serving in Babylon

Christian Doctors in a Secular Society

Rotorua hosted an unforgettable time of fellowship and encouragement.

Here's a quote from the weekend:

"This was my first CMF conference and I was blown away by the passionate people who took this time out to join together and encourage each other. It was a great reminder to me as a student of

  1. why I chose this career
  2. all the support networks around
  3. the importance of continually re-checking my motives and direction for my job/life..... because ultimately I'm here to serve God, people and love life!

So having a conference like CMF was a weekend to consolidate all those things as well as having fun and meeting new people."
