Northview Church teamed up with RIP Medical Debt, an organization that negotiates with hospitals and doctors to purchase debt at pennies on the dollar, and leveraged more than $40,000 in donations to wipe out $7.8 million in medical bills.
"The debt is then paid off forever, with no adverse consequences to those who benefit," Northview Church said in a statement.
5,940 families in the state of Indiana are now free of medical debt.
"This is a great example of churches meeting people's needs in practical ways, as a demonstration of God's love," said senior pastor Steve Poe.
