The Texas Annual Conference Golden Cross program has been providing a healing ministry to United Methodist Church members in need of assistance with medical care since its beginning in 1921. Many persons have been restored to health and have had their faith restored as well, through the generosity of Christians in the local churches and the benevolent medical care of doctors and hospitals throughout the Conference.

The cost of medical care has increased greatly over the years. Due to the rising cost of medical insurance many working families cannot afford medical and health insurance. As the number of uninsured and under insured families increase, the requests for assistance from Golden Cross also increase.

If you, or someone you know, are in need of assistance, we are here to help! Please open the application below and check eligibility.
