Christian Care Ministry/ Medi-Share, America’s most trusted health care sharing ministry, has been operating with a flex workforce over the past two years because of the pandemic. Now a “hybrid” work force with a mix of onsite, remote, and flexible employees who work part time at home and in office, Christian Care Ministry is providing new and fresh ways to unite and engage the employee population.
On April 27, Christian Care Ministry brought the weekly chapel service, normally held onsite and virtually, to Alan Shepard Park in Cocoa Beach for a one-of-a-kind experience. The Melbourne office was closed for the morning so all local employees could participate. Breakfast was provided, followed by worship led by Discover Life Church, and a message from Pastor Marquise Cox from Community Bible Church in San Antonio, TX. The service was complete when six employees were baptized in the ocean by ministry Chaplains.
However, the day didn’t end without giving back to the community when more than 40 employees participated in a beach cleanup with Keep Brevard Beautiful. Employees have 24 hours of paid time off a year to use to volunteer in their local community or serve in missions.
“What an incredible experience to share a Chapel on the Beach service with our employees. We were thrilled to be able to provide this opportunity for all of our local employees to take time out of their busy schedules to come together and unite in a beautiful location. The six ocean baptisms were particularly special. Praise God! As we come out of the pandemic of the last two years, it is events like these that can remind us how energizing it is do life together in person. I also would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to all the employees that worked behind the scenes to make this event happen as well as note our appreciation to the City of Cocoa Beach for their assistance.”- Scott Reddig, CEO Christian Care Ministry
Christian Care Ministry is committed to its culture and although employees have been very adaptable during this time, it is still important to create opportunities to come together more often. This Chapel on the Beach event was an innovative way for Christian Care Ministry to engage its hybrid employee culture.
“This was such a welcomed and unique experience for Christian Care Ministry employees today. This has been long awaited, as I know we intended to have chapel on the beach prior to the pandemic hitting. Not only was it a wonderful event, it was nice to see and catch up with co-workers we haven’t seen in person in more than two years! We are incredibly thankful to the town of Cocoa Beach for allowing us to gather and worship on their beautiful beach this morning.”- Rebecca Barrack, Christian Care Ministry employee
