Inspiring Change

There are plenty of groups and individuals in our world, who are striving to do right or set something straight, which follows their gifts or heart's calling. Many of their work goes unnoticed as they are not main-stream nor of high profile. In this section of Fair Living, we would like to profile some of them, so you can increase your world view and know what is going on.

The following list does not imply a full endorsement by Tribes and Nations, nor claim that we know and agree with every aspect of what they say and do, but we do know, they make us think and we hope it might be the same for you, there-by we all learn from the world community.

Mission - Our purpose is to glorify God, show Christian love, and experience God's presence as Christians share each other's medical bills.

Founded in 1981, Christian Healthcare Ministries (CHM) is the original health care sharing ministry for Christians. CHM is a non-profit, voluntary cost-sharing ministry through which participating Christians meet each other’s medical bills. CHM members have shared more than $1 billion in medical bills. The ministry is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in the USA.

 

Christian Healthcare Ministries is not a health insurance company. Rather, we are a group of thousands of Christians across the United States and around the world who share each other’s burdens in the area of health care costs. We also pray for and encourage one another.

 

We have existed as a ministry for more than 30 years and have served more than 100,000 people. However, our history goes as far back as New Testament times. CHM is based on Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4.

Work As Worship Network

"The world tells us that work is just a means to more comfort… more stuff… more me. TV shows and even our misdirected language in the church have hijacked our view of work and belittled it to mundane and meaningless.

Our team at RightNow is on a mission to help people see their work differently. Work is an opportunity to worship the God who created us. It’s time to TRADE in the distorted view that work is just a means to an end."
