About Christian Care Ministry

For thousands of years, Christians have come together to care for each other and carry each other's burdens. In 1993, a formalized approach to sharing healthcare burdens began with the Medi-Share program. From small beginnings, this big idea took root. Over 24 years later, the Medi-Share program serves more than 300,000 members, and more than $2 billion dollars in medical bills have been shared and discounted. Christian Care Ministry also offers a free online prayer community to equip believers to connect, encourage and pray for one another. Join PrayerStream today.
