Everyone can leave a legacy


Because of you — and thousands of your fellow believers across the country and around the world — The Christian Chronicle reaches a global audience. 

Each month we mail about 135,000 copies of our print edition to addresses in the U.S. Many of those issues are read by at least two people per household — and sometimes many more. We also have a growing, multinational online readership. Our website gets more than 72,000 page views per month.

Over the years we have experienced rising-but-manageable production and mailing costs. We’ve been doubly blessed by you, our dedicated readers and donors, who provide the essential funds to keep this ministry going. We simply could not do what we do without your support. 

As you read in these pages, many of us are concerned about the future of our fellowship — even after our days on earth are ended. We believe that a well-informed fellowship — armed with facts, not bias, and aware of the varying viewpoints among us — is vital to the future of Churches of Christ. 

That’s why we humbly ask that you consider The Christian Chronicle in your estate planning.

Perhaps you think of estate planning as a task only for those with enormous material wealth. Not so. Anyone, absolutely anyone, can use what God has given them to make a difference for the Kingdom. 

To help in this task, we offer free, no-obligation legal advice on how you can set up your estate to accomplish this goal. In the process, you may discover certain tax benefits of which you weren’t aware.

Our readers know the high quality of writing and reporting that characterizes every issue of the Chronicle.  You may recall that our writing staff has received numerous awards for their reporting. Our advertising and online staffers have been recognized for their promotional efforts. 

For four consecutive years, the Chronicle has received the first-place Award of Excellence in the Associated Church Press’ prestigious “Best in Class” awards. Judges continually praise our high-caliber reporting and the diversity shown in these pages.

This kind of acclaim only happens when the Lord brings together great Christian journalists and great Christian people who prayerfully support and bless the work. So again, thank you for your part.

Many of you have been faithful supporters of the Chronicle for some time. I want you to know how deeply grateful I am for your belief in the mission of this publication. Your support shows that you understand what the Chronicle is doing to encourage better awareness of fellow Christians and congregations across the country and around the world. We seek to promote goodwill among all. 

By now, you know that we work hard to keep costs down and to be the very best stewards of your money that we can be. Dedicated Christians serve as our trustees, keeping vigilant watch over everything the Chronicle does. You’ll find their names in the staff box on the About page.

I encourage you to take advantage of our free legal advice to see how you might financially bless the Chronicle as a kingdom work along with other goals you may have.

Please call Stephen Eck, our staff attorney in the Chronicle’s Planned Giving office, at (405) 425-5080 for information on how to include the Chronicle in your estate plans.
