Honor the life and legacy of Chuck Colson (1931-2012)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIVIt is with a heavy heart that we share the news that Chuck Colson — our friend, founder, and brother in Christ — has passed away. Though we mourn the loss of a great leader, we rejoice knowing God has welcomed his humble and faithful servant home.When Chuck Colson left prison, he promised to remember the men who remained behind bars. “I will never forget you guys!” he told them.And for 36 years, Chuck faithfully kept that promise. In 1976, he founded Prison Fellowship, a ministry dedicated to living out Jesus’ command to remember the incarcerated and share the transformational love of Jesus Christ with them and their families.

“I could never, ever have left prison and accomplished what has been accomplished but for God doing it through me,” Chuck once said.

Please continue to pray for the entire Colson family. While we all deeply feel this loss, we take heart knowing God has welcomed Chuck into paradise with a “well done, good and faithful servant!”

Together, let’s celebrate the life of Chuck Colson — a man transformed by grace, dedicated to serving our Savior, and now living in eternal glory with the Lord.
