Christian Compassion Ministries

Christian Compassion Ministries (CCM) has been serving our senior community in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other elderly care housing for over 20 years. As Beaches Chapel Church wanted to help support the outreach, Chaplain John Dawson was advised to file to become a non-profit organization and in 1994, CCM became a non-profit I.R.S. 501(c)3 approved charitable organization.

As a result, Christian Compassion Ministries expanded from its initial focus upon Avante nursing home in Jacksonville Beach, Florida to include sites such as: Edenbrook, Harbor Chase, Bentley Square, Ashford Court Assisted Living & Alzheimer Care Centers, Cypress Village, The Atria, Magnolia Manor (St. Mary’s, GA), Bay View (St. Augustine, FL), Pablo Hamlet, Pablo Towers of Jacksonville Beach Complexes.

Chaplain John (plus Jane when available) also visits Hospitals, Rehab Centers, personal homes and he is “on call” to almost anywhere as possible including “middle of the night” emergencies.  One of their Chief Missions is to reach these elderly with the Gospel before they pass on and encourage the living to build upon their relationship with the Lord.

The Dawsons minister that the Lord desires a personal relationship with His people rather than “going through the motions of a form of religion“. Fortunately,  this mission has been successful and the Dawson’s are able to bless and encourage people to serve a living God who really loves them!  When a person has made their peace with God, their passing becomes an “End of Life Celebration” during their Memorial Service and/or Funeral ~ the idea is that there is a Heaven & it’s awesome!

As our Financial Books are open, one would see that our funding comes from Cypress Village providing ($150 monthly), The Windsor ($200 monthly) and Ashford Court ($100 monthly) plus about 20 or so wonderful families, individuals, plus two Family Foundations who donate to this outreach, so we rely upon the Lord and His gracious people to help sustain the ministry.  The ministry has had annual income from around $15,000 to up to $50,000 but is usually somewhere in between.

Christian Compassion Ministries (CCM) has never attempted to persuade anyone to “Put CCM as a Beneficiary in their Wills” and thus far, CCM has never been a Beneficiary (except from one volunteer years ago) thus we do NOT manipulate the elderly to get into their finances!  Quite a few Churches and Ministries practice accepting credit cards and place Forms in the Church Foyer or send them to their members suggesting the bequeathing of Stocks, Insurance Policies, Real Estate, etc. ~ we consider this practice as inappropriate and have chosen to focus on His Kingdom First and then all these other things will be added unto us. (Luke 12:31)

This ministry proclaims and teaches that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, that He came to fulfill the Law and then sacrificially die on the Cross so our sins could be forgiven through His shed Blood, that He was actually Resurrected from the Dead, went into the underworld to recover the Keys of Death & Hades from Satan and that He presides over a REAL Heaven, sending His Holy Spirit to help, lead, and comfort His people & that He WILL indeed come again to earth to Rule & Reign FOREVER!
