Churches Pay Off 1.4 Million in Medical Debt in Northern Michigan
An Association of Churches Used Their Resources to Eliminate Medical Debt in more than 18 Counties in Michigan
Kingsley, MI, August 6, 2020 — An association of ten churches in the northwest part of Michigan has used their resources to pay off more than 1.4 Million dollars in medical debt in Northern Michigan.
In partnership with RIP Medical Debt, the Northwest Baptist Association was able to secure and eliminate medical debt in more than 18 counties, including Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie, Wexford, Missaukee, Kalkaska, Antrim, Emmet, Charlevoix, Crawford, Ostego, Roscommon, Oscoda, Montmorency, Presque Isle, Alpena, Alcona, and Ogemaw counties.
The process was started by Pastor Nathan J. Norman of The Orchard Church (Kingsley, MI) before the pandemic hit, but Director of Missions, Pastor Darren Greer ensured the process continued to completion. Pastor Greer said, “People need relief and hope now more than ever.”
Northwest Baptist Association is an association of churches working together to share the Good News of Jesus.
