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), The Windsor, Pablo Hamlet, Pablo Towers of Jacksonville Beach Complexes.
Chaplain John 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 t 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!
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 Heaven, sending His Holy Spirit to help, lead, and comfort His people & that He WILL indeed come again to earth to Rule & Reign FOREVER!
