Brian Schwartz, MD

Dr. Brian Schwartz is an interventional cardiologist practicing in Kettering, Ohio. As a medical student, he struggled with his faith, nearly coming to the point of giving up. He was reclaimed through a deeper understanding of the meaning of Christ's sacrifice and its implications for his personal life.

Dr. Schwartz struggled for years with the nagging conviction that medicine should be more than just a job. He longed to make his medical work a healing ministry. His association with AMEN has helped him to integrate Christian spirituality into his practice in a more intentional and more natural way. It brings him joy to share with his patients the message that has so touched his heart. Dr. Schwartz serves as the editor of Medical Evangelist, AMEN's journal. He and his wife, internist Lyndi Schwartz, MD are a powerful ministry team in Dayton, Ohio.

It’s been a blessing to have the opportunity to be Editor of AMEN’s Journal – The Medical Evangelist. When Rebecca and I put together a “newsletter” 10 years ago, we had no idea that this was the beginning of a biannual journal that would highlight the work of AMEN. I did everything possible to avoid writing in college, and would never consider myself a journalist, but in this case it seems really true that God doesn’t call the able but equips the willing. “Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.”
– Job 8:7

I have been blessed to serve with Rebecca, a very capable assistant editor, who really does do the work while I get the credit (and occasionally the blame). We also have a supportive and engaged editorial committee that has included Robert Hunsaker, David Otis, and Phil Mills.

It is a wonderful thing to see something you’ve had a hand at starting take on a life of its own and continue on to the next generation of leadership. Following this issue, Dr. Phil Mills will take the helm as Editor in Chief of The Medical Evangelist. I am confident he will build on what has been started, yet has his own aspirations and the journal will continue to expand as it enters its second decade.

Phil truly has a gift for words and has been a strong supporter of this endeavor since its’ inception. I anticipate that under his direction, The Medical Evangelist will continue to fill the role of motivating physicians and dentists, both young and old, to pursue the highest calling of becoming medical evangelists in these last days.

Please pray for Phil, Rebecca, and the team as they continue this work bringing inspiring testimonies and thoughtful articles to the forefront through the AMEN journal.

Thank you to all our members and friends for supporting us these past 10 years as we continue to look to the future with eager anticipation.
