The TCT Television Network (TCT Ministries) has taken on a new mission field. They have paid $2.5 million worth of medical debt for people in 11 counties in Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, and Ohio.
TCT is a 24/7 Christian Television Network that has been broadcasting the Gospel for over forty years. The President and Founders, Dr. Garth and Tina Coonce felt the need to do this, as part of one of the many missions they support and are actively involved in. TCT has begun to partner with RIP Medical Debt, a 501(c)(3) charity that so far has abolished $584 million in medical debt for about 240,000 Americans.
Across this country, there are people with medical debt and they simply don't have any way to pay it. Most of the people are living at a poverty level or below poverty level and the situation is serious and hopeless for some. Struggling families, senior citizens, anyone can be affected with unforeseen illness leaving unpayable medical bills. Medical costs are astronomical and a heavy burden to bear for someone who is already sick and struggling. Yet, they have the added pressures of bill collectors calling, writing, and trying to collect.
TCT saw this need and began to do something about it. Today, $2.5 million in medical debt that was hanging over so many families right now - these same family's that are living in poverty, have nothing or less - has been paid in full. Today, TCT was able to provide relief for 2,500 families in need.
Eligible families were chosen randomly by RIP Medical Debt based on their debt levels. This is just one of the ways TCT stays active in the local communities and mission fields.

TCT Ministries is a Christian Television Network founded by Drs. Garth and Tina Coonce in 1977 with stations throughout the United States broadcasting the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world.
