Marine Reach Fiji is based out of Lautoka in Viti Levu, the largest island in Fiji. We exist to serve the people of Fiji evangelically and medically (including dental, optometry, ophthalmic and physiotherapy), spreading the truth of God’s love through our words and caring. This takes the form of regular medical outreaches and Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) which travel to the villages and islands and provide for those who find access to medical healthcare difficult. We are well equipped and have excellent facilities to fulfil God’s calling in these areas.
We have provided medically, dentally and optically for more than 50,000 Fijians since we began in 2002 and aim to further God’s reach amongst this nation. Although we have used ships on many occasions in the past (learn more about Marine Reach Fiji’s origins visit our History page) we are currently providing for Viti Levu via land-based transport.
While our main focus is on medical outreaches our ministry also includes hosting Discipleship Training Schools (DTS). We run a Medical & Healthcare DTS focussed on bringing medicine and Christian living together, and recently started offering a Korean DTS.
In addition to running Discipleship Training Schools we offer hosting for YWAM teams, Church Groups, Youth groups and teams and individuals wishing to be involved in medical and practical volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in getting involved with our ministry or have any questions please feel free to check out our Contact page for information about how to get in touch with us.
Our staff is primarily focussed around medical healthcare, but evangelism is just as much a part of Marine Reach Fiji as anything else. Therefore we welcome all those with a heart to serve God to get involved, whether they have a healthcare background or not. We are always keen to bring new people here on short-term outreaches, to join our Discipleship Training Schools (DTS) or to volunteer as staff here in Marine Reach Fiji.
We are part of Marine Reach Ministries, a Christian organisation of trained professionals and dedicated volunteers who desire to demonstrate the hope and compassion of Jesus Christ to those in need worldwide. It currently works out of 14 countries worldwide. Read more about our founding organisation at the Marine Reach Ministries website. Marine Reach Ministries is a non-denominational Christian organization that is dedicated to Linking Resources to Needs. Through the use of tools such as ships, trucks, containers, teams and clinics, Marine Reach Ministries seeks to serve the island nations throughout the South Pacific and South East Asia region by bringing free medical care & the love of God to those in need, especially those living in isolation. Its vision is to develop a fleet of mobile clinics in addition to permanent clinics, and to bring in/send out teams to be a resource in this region.
Marine Reach Ministries is itself part of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) – an international movement of Christians who desire to know God and make Him known throughout the world. YWAM started in 1960 as a small group of young people who wanted to encourage others to get involved in mission work and has now grown to include over 17,000 full-time staff in 171 countries. You can find our all about it at the YWAM website.
