Another church is making headlines for helping low-income individuals and families erase their medical debt. Stetson Baptist Church in Central Florida will pay off over $7.2 million in medical debt for nearly 6,500 people!
The church also plans to use the donations to fund three foster homes for the next year. According to Senior Pastor Dan Glenn, they’re raising money for both the RIP Medical Debt program and Florida Baptist Children’s Homes.
“It’s one thing for us to say, ‘God loves you,” Pastor Glenn told his congregation. “It’s another for us to show it.”
Glenn says was inspired after hearing about a Kansas church that recently paid off over one million dollar for 2,000 families.
Below is video of the moment Pastor Glenn shared the news with his congregation.
