Churches usually serve the community they are located in, through good times and bad, as they should.

While the luxurious lifestyles of millionaire pastors of ‘mega churches’ often make headlines, the good work done by churches often get no mention at all.

A church in Indiana recently proved that teamwork can have a tremendous impact on the communities they serve, in this instance by wiping out $7.8 million of medical debt for almost 6,000 families across the state of Indiana.

According to a report by IndyStar, Northview Church of Carmel, Indiana, teamed up with RIP Medical Debt using over $40,000 of the latter’s donations to cancel the unpaid medical bills of families across ten communities in Indiana.

Based in New York, RIP helps poverty stricken families and those who has debt amounting to five percent or more than their income. Once the debt is settled, beneficiaries are advised through the program that their debt has been settled, no strings attached.

Usually, unpaid medical bills are transferred to collection agencies in which case the debt continues to grow with interest added each month. However when RIP Medical Debt gets involved, they negotiate with hospitals, doctors and investors to purchase debt literally for pennies on the dollar.

In a statement, Northview Church said:

“The debt is then paid off forever, with no adverse consequences to those who benefit.”

The church which has seven campuses across the state, had originally announced that they would cancel $2 million in debt for 2,500 families in those communities. Following the announcement in June, other churches chipped in to help the cause and Northview congregants continued their donations to ultimately double the effect of the relief plan.

According to the church, the medical debts of entire cities were wiped out in some cases.

What makes the settlement of these debts even more amazing is not only that so many people donated to the cause, or conditions attached like being or becoming a member of the church but that there are truly no strings of any kind attached. A gift likely to be seen as a miracle by many recipients who had carried the heavy weight of medical debt on their shoulders.

Northview’s Senior Pastor Steve Poe had this to say:

“This is a great example of churches meeting people’s needs in practical ways as a demonstration of God’s love.”
