Shared joy is double joy; shared sorrow is a half a sorrow.—Swedish Proverb
The well-known saying, “Misery loves company,” is reversed for followers of Christ, because their joy loves company. CHM’s Bring-a-Friend program is a way to share joy with others.
In 2020, our nation, and the world, faced circumstances unprecedented, with an unknown outcome and an unknown virus. Today, many of us are still experiencing the effects from the “new normal.” As a result, many fellow Christians are in need of budget-friendly options for their healthcare costs.
Since 1981, CHM has upheld the biblically based practice of health cost sharing. The ministry’s foundation is the New Testament principles found in Galatians 6:2 and Acts 2 and 4, and the examples and exhortations for Christians to share their abundance, needs and burdens. The idea of sharing—whether joys, sorrows, hardships, pain or physical materials—is found throughout Scripture.
That’s why we encourage CHM members to use the Bring-a-Friend (BAF) program to share the blessings found through this ministry with their friends and family. The value and advantages of CHM serve many people—and you help yourself by helping others.
Your referral can help a loved one discover that CHM is a cost-effective and faith-based way for believers to satisfy their major healthcare costs—and you can earn Bring-a-Friend credits for yourself.
For every new member you refer to CHM, you will receive credits equal to one month of your friend or family's new monthly gift. You'll receive your credits after your friend submits their third monthly financial gift. You can earn up to 12 months’ worth of credits per year. That means you can earn up to a free year of CHM membership! So, invite as many friends and family members as you want.
More members join CHM through the BAF program than through any other method. This is made possible by members sharing their testimonies of how well CHM works for them.
Your friends and family may be encouraged to know that CHM monthly membership is voluntary and membership costs remain the same no matter your job situation, health history or geographic location. Whether you move to another state, have a child, lose a loved one, endure an expensive health crisis or experience the loss of a job, CHM stands with you.
This means CHM is an eligible option for individuals and families under the national healthcare law—the Affordable Care Act—and it's a viable faith-based solution for Christians who embrace biblical principles.
By registering for your Bring-a-Friend dashboard in the Member Portal, it's even easier to participate in the BAF program. You can see how many credits you've earned, track your unique referral link, and use helpful resources to share the ministry with those you know and love.
Joy loves company, too.
