The Christopher’s celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2020!  We couldn’t have made it this far without the generous support of people like you. Thank you for always remembering us. With your continued support, the legacy of hope we have built together will endure for many years to come. Thanks, and God Bless!

Our Mission Statement

      The mission of The Christophers is to encourage people of all ages, and from all walks of life, to use their God-given talents to make a positive difference in the world. The mission is best expressed in The Christophers’ motto: “It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” 
      We believe that each person has a God-given mission to fulfill, a particular job to do that has been given to no one else. Love and truth come to us through God, but these gifts are not ours to keep. By sharing them with others each of us becomes a Christ-bearer, a “Christopher” in the most fundamental sense of that word. 
      It is through our literature, broadcasts, awards and leadership courses that we at The Christophers work toward our mission, bringing positive and constructive values into the mainstream of life. To encourage personal responsibility we have no meetings, no memberships and no dues. All are welcome to join us, knowing that in embracing the Christopher mission they will share one overriding commitment: the love of all people for the love of God.
