About Medical Missions of Christ Clinics

Our History

In 2000, a group of Lake of the Ozarks residents began volunteering for annual overseas medical mission trips. On one trip, volunteers expressed concern about people back here, in our home community, who were unable to get the healthcare they needed due to low incomes and lack of health insurance.

At the same time, another local group was exploring the idea of starting a free clinic where volunteers would provide care for those who couldn’t afford to pay.  God brought these two groups together and in 2006, Medical Missions for Christ Clinic opened its doors.

What We Do

Since 2006, we’ve helped thousands of people get the healthcare they needed but couldn’t afford.  We offer a variety of health services including:

  • Primary medical care
  • Basic dental services
  • Chiropractic care
  • Prescription assistance
  • Mammograms
  • Eye care
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Referrals
  • Other health related services

We also have a Shepherding Program that helps people with health-related issues that aren’t being met by other resources.

Who We Serve

Our patients are residents of the greater Lake of the Ozarks area. They are low income (under 200% of Federal Poverty Level, based on size of household) and uninsured, underinsured, or are otherwise unable to access the care they need.

To see if you qualify for our services, call 573-346-7777. We can usually pre-qualify you by phone on the same day.

Why We Serve

Jesus is our model for service. Just as He loved and served people without regard to their social status, we serve all clients with compassion and respect.
