The Meros Center is a joint venture between Kingdom Workers and Wisconsin Lutheran College. Meros exists to proclaim the full ministry of Jesus through faith-based health innovation. We are a research and training community for Christian health ministry organizations, researchers, and students. The Meros Center promises to be a community where relationships and research work together to create gospel-centered strategies that reflect the ministry of Jesus. We all have a part to play in showing God’s love and each of us have been given gifts and abilities to act as the body of Christ in this world. This is Meros. We want to transform communities through faith-based health and development partnerships that engage the spiritually lost, improve health, and equip believers for works of service. The Meros Center provides access to relevant research, evaluation tools, training, and connections that are often difficult to find. Health ministry initiatives are empowered to innovate and improve outcomes while increasing credibility in the broader health community. Students, volunteers, and health professionals receive training to implement and evaluate gospel-centered community health strategies both locally and globally. In this vibrant hub of networking and discovery, believers work together to holistically transform communities. The Meros Center values discipleship, curiosity, dignity for all, transparency, and learning.
