Kristin Martel

Dr. Martel serves as a staff physician at Siloam Health in Nashville, TN. During her first year of medical school, Dr. Martel had several experiences where the Lord opened her eyes and moved her to want to pursue the practice of medicine in underserved communities. She was blessed to have an early elective working with Christian physicians who were living out the Gospel as they cared for the refugees and immigrants in Nashville where she experienced relational, intentional, faith based care for the poor and alien. This practice of whole person care for the poor provided passion and purpose throughout her medical school training.

She and her husband Ben have three adventurous, energetic children. They met during Internal Medicine/Pediatric residency at Vanderbilt. He now practices as a hospitalist in Nashville. They share a common passion for mentoring students and caring for those from other cultures. And love that God brought them together to practice medicine for His glory.

Ben McKinney

Dr. McKinney currently lives in South Dallas and works at an inner city clinic in the south side of Dallas called City Square Health Services Clinic.

Dr. McKinney graduated from Baylor University and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He completed residency in Memphis, Tennessee at Resurrection Health Family Medicine Residency.

Dr. McKinney and his wife have two young daughters. Ben was radically transformed by the Grace of God prior to entering medical school and began to slowly understand God’s heart for the entire world, for His name to be made much of, and his unique love for the orphan, widow, sojourner and poor, as well as the pharisee.

He quickly learned how medicine can be used to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel and show the love of Christ to these populations.
