WATCH: Elevate Life Church in Frisco Pays Off $2.2 Million in Medical Debt for Collin County Residents

For many in Collin County, mounting medical debt will soon be erased thanks to the generosity of one Frisco church.

“In just Collin County this week we purchased $2.2 million worth of medical debt and forgave it all,” Josh Craft, the executive pastor at Elevate Life Church in Frisco announced at last Sunday’s service.

Applause erupted.

“It was amazing to see how our church responded,” Craft said.

“It really helped fulfill.. this is what we’re here on earth to do,” Mitchell Chapa, who was attending church that day, said.

As each new year begins, the church selects words that will guide them throughout the year.

“One of our words for this year is transformation,” Craft said. “We just want to see true life change happen with people. One of the best ways to change someone’s life is to pay off their debt.”
