Sharity Ministries Restructures its Board

Chris Sizemore, Founder & CEO of Creative Mischief, announced as new chairman

(ATLANTA) – Sharity Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non-profit health care sharing ministry, has restructured its board as it continues to improve the experience of its members across the nation. Chris Sizemore, founder & CEO of Creative Mischief, who joined the board in October 2019, has become the new chairman. Joe Handy, president of the Georgia Aquarium Foundation has assumed the role of Secretary, and Stephen Vault, vice president of Strategic Community Development and Community Affairs for Wellstar Health System, has assumed the role of treasurer. Both Handy and Vault joined the board in January 2020.

“As we set our sites on a brighter and bolder future for our ministry, we believe this realignment will better utilize the directors’ strengths,” said Joe Guarino, president and a board member of Sharity Ministries. “Transforming our organization to better serve our members is an objective all the directors can support and promote.” In December 2019, Sharity revamped its management structure. In January 2020, it announced an agreement with a church to strengthen the tradition of health care sharing for the benefit of its collective membership.

William “Rip” Thead, CEO of Sharity Ministries, remains as a member after having served commendably as chairman of the board since Sharity’s inception.

About Sharity Ministries

Sharity Ministries is a 501(c)(3) non-profit health care sharing ministry built on the centuries- old Christian tradition of sharing and bearing one another’s health care needs. Our members hold a common set of religious beliefs, and voluntarily agree to share their medical expenses in accordance with those beliefs. Our sharing programs are designed to simplify the complexities of health care, while putting the power of choice back in the hands of our members. In 2019, Sharity members shared almost $58 million in medical expenses. For more information, visit
