Why SMI? The Lowes see an opportunity for prayer

By Michael Miller of Samaritan Ministries  ·  Jan 25, 2021

Samaritan Ministries membership offers Brian and Cheryl Lowe and their family “an opportunity to pray for other people who are going through illness and difficult times, and then knowing that that’s happening for us as well.”

The Lowes joined Samaritan in 2014 when they were looking for a better way to handle health care costs.

“We had a plan through a provider, but the cost kept going up and up exponentially,” said Brian, pastor of Exodus Church in Gastonia, North Carolina. “We looked at some options that we could pursue.”

They heard about Samaritan and chose it out of several options. 

“There are a lot of ways to handle health care,” he said. “This is one way. We’ve had a great experience. We haven’t had a single concern about getting our Shares from other members for our Needs.”
