2019 Ministry Fund

The society is experiencing a growth in our ministries throughout the US and world.  Incoming president, Matt McCauley, has set a 2019 ministry goal to see these ministries flourish.

The society continues to be supportive of engaging the next generation of ophthalmologists in training through grant support for our annual meeting attendance.  In addition, some of the following new ministries are being launched:

  • Glen Mentorship Program (discipleship for any member in training or young ophthalmologist)
  • Salt and Light Podcast (monthly podcast featuring members of the society
  • COS Missionary Support (regular connections and support of our missionary colleagues)
  • "Givesight" - a new ministry where patients and ophthalmologists can be linked to gospel-driven missions restoring sight to impoverished people. (launching first quarter 2019)


Prior longstanding ministries will continue and include:

  • Holding the highest quality engaging annual meeting that is family friendly
  • Supporting the next generation of ophthalmologists in training and missionary ophthalmologists with generous annual meeting grants
  • Providing venues yearly within major medical meetings including the AAO, ASCRS, ASRS, AAPOS and ARVO
  • Partnering with local members to launch Regional Refresh events in different cities around the country.
  • Support and encouragement of our European and African Christian ophthalmology colleagues
  • Providing both print and digital resources for the practicing ophthalmologist and for those in training including archives of our important talks and lectures.

We have a new goal of $100,000 to support these growing ministries of the society in 2019.  Our ultimate goal is to spiritually nourish ophthalmologists and to see eyecare practices across the world sharing their faith in Jesus Christ widely with patients and their communities.

Please consider generous support of our efforts.
