Medi-Share Pastors’ Alliance launch new initiatives to provide resources and support to pastors across the country.

Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share, America’s most trusted healthcare sharing ministry, is committed to supporting pastors through the Medi-Share Pastors’ Alliance (MPA).

MELBOURNE, Fla. – Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share, America’s most trusted healthcare sharing ministry, is committed to supporting pastors through the Medi-Share Pastors’ Alliance (MPA).

This online community is a way for Christian Care Ministry to support church leaders as they support the church. Recently, a new, easy-to-use online web portal was released to the members of the MPA, equipping them with a host of resources to help the pastor community to address the challenges they face today.

The Medi-Share’s Pastors’ Alliance currently has more than 4,000 members and is growing. Any pastor (or paid pastoral ministerial staff member) who is a Medi-Share member is eligible to join.

Through the Medi-Share Pastors’ Alliance community, pastors have access to an abundance of resources to empower their calling and expand their reach and cultural impact. More importantly, the MPA provides tools and support to strengthen and encourage our church leaders.

“One of the most challenging jobs on the planet right now is being a pastor or church staff member.  I am thrilled that we have the opportunity to build deeper community through the pastors’ alliance by resourcing these leaders both personally and congregationally to promote wellness and Kingdom impact.”- Barry Sneed, Executive Director Medi-Share Pastors’ Alliance

Members of the MPA are able to access unlimited virtual counseling visits, along with three face-to-face sessions with a counselor a year also available at no cost.

“The Medi-Share Pastor’s Alliance is creating synergy that will allow us to accomplish exponentially more for the Kingdom of God than any of us will be able to do on our own.  This Alliance has provided us with demographic data we would not have otherwise been able to obtain, and has been an amazing source of encouragement over the last two years of pandemic-mania.  Moving forward, I hope to see this alliance become a place where we can share both ideas and resources to help each other further the work of the Gospel everywhere Medi-Share is present.” said MPA member, Kendall Hicks, Pastor – Carpenter’s Church in Anderson, SC.

Medi-Share has also provided members of the Pastors’ Alliance a chance to participate in the Church Outreach Strategies Summit which showcases innovative examples and tactics used by real-life church leaders. This is just one more example of equipping pastors so they can focus on Kingdom work.

Medi-Share partners with Lestonnac Free Clinic for their “Wheels That Heal” Grand Opening

Published on May 19, 2022

Medi-Share partnered with the Lestonnac Clinic to purchase a new mobile medical clinic and helped introduce their new “Wheels That Heal” mobile unit to reach the uninsured in southern California.

Christian Care Ministry/ Medi-Share, America’s leading health care sharing ministry saw a great need for a travelling medical clinic in many parts of southern California. This unit anticipates to reach over 2000 patients a year in a community with limited access to resources. This mobile medical clinic is state of the art, with the ability to provide free medical, vision, and dental care to the most vulnerable in southern California. Lestonnac is also partnering with the American Red Cross to provide additional resources and support after a local natural disaster.

When first introduced to the concept, Medi-Share appealed to its members nationwide to hit the goal and met the need.

“This mobile, freestanding clinic concept is a model that many other clinics can replicate across the country. Being able to get these resources into homeless encampments is life-changing to those who don’t have access to quality health care. Medi-Share is excited to be a part of this movement, and believes that efforts like this help us live out our vision of “Transforming society through the Biblical model of sharing.” -Evelio Silvera, VP of Communications and Government Affairs for Christian Care Ministry.

This mobile medical unit, “Wheels That Heal,” has been customized to harness every inch to its fullest potential. The generous layout has an exam room, waiting area, nurse station, and a restroom. It is equipped with an exam chair, which fully reclines, so it can be used for both medical and dental visits. The unit runs on solar power and is supplied with Wi-Fi to provide connection for virtual telemedicine visits. This equipment allows a patient’s appointment to be transmitted live to a remote volunteer provider, through a HIPAA-compliant connection, allowing for virtual medical consultations. This unit will further expand Lestonnac’s ability to provide health care services to patients in southern California, who previously lacked access to care.   

“It is such a privilege to be here to celebrate the grand opening of this mobile medical clinic. We would like to recognize Lestonnac Free Clinic and Medi-Share/Christian Care Ministry for all you have done to make this a reality. We have no doubt that our communities will benefit from your vision and initiative to go where there is a need. Our uninsured communities, our low income communities, the most vulnerable. Thank you so much and congratulations.” –Abigail Fachtmann Field Representaitve CA District 39 office of Young Kim

Lestonnac’s mission has always been to provide free health care services to low-income and uninsured residents in southern California. Through mobile expansions such as these, Lestonnac can bring that mission directly to those who need it most, right in their own community. Medi-Share is honored to partner alongside Lestonnac.

#1 Bestselling Author and English Confidence Coach Francisca Garcés Launches Here Signature Program The English Confidence Method

#1 Bestselling Author and English Confidence Coach Francisca Garcés Launches Here Signature Program The English Confidence Method

Published on May 18, 2022

English Confidence Coach Francisca Garcés, MA to Help Ambitious Non-Native English speaking Professionals to achieve total fluency through confidence building with her signature program the English Confidence Method

Since the early stages of second language acquisition, students struggle to separate grammar notations from real-life English application and expression. Professionals and career-driven intermediate English speakers find it hard to use English as a tool for self-development and the uplevel of career and life opportunities in English-speaking countries and scenarios. 

According to Francisca, one of the ways to become a great speaker and leader in a professional field in your second language is confidence building. Language learning is not enough. There has to be an element of mindset involved when traveling abroad or developing yourself professionally in an English-speaking scenario. Through mastery of discomfort, and reprogramming your brain to take action and build small habits, growth, personal or professional, inevitably happens. 

Unfortunately, English learners are sometimes limited by the following thought: “I need to be in an English-speaking country to practice and master English communication skills.” And although this accelerates results, it is more about your willingness and sound immersion. Francisca did not grow up in an English-speaking country but had such passion and determination for language learning that she did not let that stop her. 

Inside her signature program, Francisca combines both her amazing English communication skills as a non-native English speaker and confidence expert and her life experience as a depression and anxiety survivor. So, she knows about transformation and action. Because as language learners and high-achieving professionals, we can’t rely on theory and excuses.

In order to remove limiting beliefs around English mastery, Francisca adds “It’s not about the country. It’s about you and your willingness to put in the work, step out of your comfort zone and stand out from the crowd with confidence. No matter the circumstances.” A belief she encourages to her students inside the English Confidence Method. 

The English Confidence Method is an accelerated method to help ambitious, high-achieving non-native intermediate English speaking professionals go from feeling frustrated with their English communication skills and limited in growth to confident, fluent, and conversational so that they can capitalize on life and career opportunities in an English speaking country or scenario.   

Dalila Bivolaru, a brilliant member of Francisca’s signature program, said “Thanks to participating in this course I got my visa for working in the US and, I have participated in different interviews with foreign companies and got a job for the summer, initiating conversations with people from different countries.” 

Francisca Garcés Narváez, MA, is a multi-passionate and creative entrepreneur from South America who fell in love with music at 1 and English at 7. It is her mission to live every day being creative and helping others expand their mindset and opportunities through English communication skills. Her online course, the English Confidence Method, was designed to provide an effective method for high-achieving non-native English-speaking professionals from all over the world to become confident and fluent to uplevel their career opportunities. She recently became a #1 international best-selling author of Women who lead, along with other female trailblazers and entrepreneurs. 

Francisca hopes that non-native English-speaking professionals will learn how to master discomfort and English communication skills to achieve total confidence, and fluency with her efficient, and immersive methodology.

Carlos Daniel González from Colombia, who participated in the program, said “Her pronunciation system is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Furthermore, I now know with absolute certainty that recurrent practice, discipline, and continuity are what lead to the expected results. By training just a little each week, or on the weekends, you will not be able to become the English fluent and confident speaker you want to be. 

For more information about the program and how it can help you to uplevel your life and career opportunities in an English speaking country or scenario, book a call with Francisca’s team: https://calendly.com/englishconfidence/60min
