RIP MEDICAL DEBT
Thank you for watching the video. Connect Church has partnered with RIP Medical Debt to help abolish 6.3 million dollars of medical debt in the Sevier County area and in the state of Tennessee. People who call Connect Church their home and many others have donated money to abolish medical debt! Truly no strings attached.
WHO IS RIP MEDICAL DEBT?
RIP Medical Debt was founded in 2014 by two former debt collections executives, Craig Antico and Jerry Ashton.
Over the course of decades in the debt-buying industry, Craig and Jerry met with thousands of Americans saddled with unpaid and un-payable medical debt and realized they were uniquely qualified to help these people in need.
They used their expertise and compassion to create a unique way to forgive medical debt: they would use donations to buy large bundles of medical debt and then forgive that debt with no tax consequences to donors or recipients. From this idea came RIP Medical Debt, a New York based 501(C)(3). The results have been spectacular—over $964,125,037 million in medical debts eradicated so far, providing financial relief for over 480,000 individuals and families.
WHO IS CONNECT CHURCH?
Connect Church is a church in the Sevier County area whose mission is to connect everyone with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. Our lead pastor, Anthony Kendall, heard about RIP Medical Debt and had a passion to see medical debt in our community paid for and abolished. People who attend Connect Church, whether at our physical location or online, donated the money needed to abolish the medical debt. Connect Church was not able to know who would receive medical debt help so we have no idea what your name is!
