More than 11,000 donors make the Chronicle possible


The trustees and staff of The Christian Chronicle deeply appreciate the support that you and our 11,381 donors provide to make the Chronicle possible each month to a worldwide readership. We come to you by direct mail several times each year because we rely on your support for about 55 percent of our operating costs.
Thank you for your faithful financial gifts. We could not do it without you.
As our way of saying thank you, we have asked a few of our longtime supporters why they help the Chronicle year after year.
Here’s a sampling of their responses:
My wife and I support The Christian Chronicle because it presents the activities of Churches of Christ — large and small — very effectively. The writing is concise and to-the-point, with wide-ranging coverage. We frequently hear comments in our congregation about the value and pertinence of the Chronicle. The editorials are on target, and Bailey McBride’s columns warm our hearts.

The Chronicle keeps us informed about the people and issues that shape Churches of Christ throughout the U.S. and the world. We want to learn what new trends and old traditions shape the collective development of the global church. The expression of different views on spiritual, biblical and church-development topics helps us to become aware of and understand those outside our immediate circle of associations.  
We especially appreciate articles that tackle important and sometimes controversial issues that confront churches today and examples of successful, growing churches who think outside the box.

All my life I’ve been interested in missionary work and have kept up with it. I want other people to know about it too. I’m interested in everybody knowing what everybody else is doing in the church all over the world.

Wanita I. White | Lafayette, Ind.
supporter for 25 consecutive years

What means a lot to me is that the paper tells us what is going on in the church on other continents and in our own country as well. I really enjoy reading it because it lifts me up to know that the church is growing.

Ruth A. Plumb | Prospect, Conn.
supporter for 25 consecutive years

We have supported and will continue to support The Christian Chronicle because it is a good paper to keep us well-informed of Christians around the world — information we would not normally have available.
Thank you for your tireless effort. Our prayers are for your continued success.

I have been, and will continue to be, a supporter of the Chronicle as I value hearing news of the churches around the world. Separated by miles, we often lose contact with those beyond our own communities. Every Christian ought to share and rejoice in the publication and support of this paper.
The Chronicle has a great past, a valued present and a hopeful future.

 Austin and Barbara Emery | Mena, Ark.
supporters for 25 consecutive years

I like to support The Christian Chronicle because I am encouraged by the good activities of others. I think about the statement, “Go into all the world …” and I can read about works being done by churches both here and abroad and mission trips and other good things. I especially like Bailey McBride’s column.

Nena Brannan | Albuquerque, N.M.
supporter for 21 consecutive years

The reason I think it is important to support the Chronicle is that it keeps all of us who read it connected with the workings of the church throughout the world.
Reading The Christian Chronicle helps me see the “gears of the church” turning. It informs me, gives me ideas for implementation in our local church, makes me delighted and, at times, makes me grieve for our Lord’s church.

Bill and Virginia Dennis | Natchitoches, La.
supporters for 23 consecutive years

We support The Christian Chronicle because it is comprehensive, reliable, well-written news that keeps us up-to-date. Features such as the book reviews and editorials complete the worthwhile aspects of the paper.

Gary and Linda Snow | Seminole, Okla.
supporters for 21 consecutive years

We support The Christian Chronicle because it is the single best source for keeping current on what is happening within the church worldwide, including:  articles on church issues, needs and successes, a listing of future brotherhood events, pertinent data and information on our schools and missions, and personnel movement and obituaries.

 Gene and Carel Muehring | Morton, Ill.
supporters for 25 consecutive years

Glenna and I support the Chronicle because we see a need for a church newspaper. Members of the Churches of Christ and others around the world can regularly receive an update on what is happening in the congregations and missions around the world. Now people can even receive daily e-mail updates. This information is priceless.  

Tom and Glenna Trimble | Scottsdale, Ariz.
supporters for 23 consecutive years

We live in Pennsylvania, but we want to know about the good things going on in the church in Wyoming, Colorado and everywhere else so we read the Chronicle each month. It helps us get an overall picture of happenings in the church, and we find the mission stories especially interesting.

Bill and Erma Heiser | Carlisle, Penn.
supporters for 15 consecutive years

With a variety of assignments in the military, we moved more than 20 times to various parts of the country and overseas. My wife, Cynthia, and I became active in local churches with each new assignment.
Then and now, through our Christian relationships, activities and travels during our nearly 44 years of marriage, we find that The Christian Chronicle keeps us informed, passionate and eager for all the opportunities the Lord has in store for his people worldwide.
Thank you, Christian Chronicle, for your faithful service and the support you’ve richly given us and the Christian community.

Alan and Cynthia Langford | Huntsville, Ala.
supporters for 18 consecutive years

What is going on with Churches of Christ worldwide is of great interest to me. I know of no other source that compares with The Christian Chronicle in providing such information. How wonderful to read in a recent issue that Jesus’ hometown church in Nazareth now has elders. It is also good to learn that the Park Avenue church in Memphis, Tenn., is coordinating relief efforts for the Japanese earthquake.

Reatha J. Guyer | Lincoln, Neb.
supporter for 25 consecutive years

I support The Christian Chronicle because it does an outstanding job in communicating the life, health and challenges facing our fellowship. I appreciate the balanced reporting and enjoy reading stories about churches “Across the Nation” and “Around the World” due to connections from friendships, family and various mission activities.

Jeff Dimick | Los Angeles
supporter for 19 consecutive years

We appreciate the Chronicle because it keeps us in touch with what’s happening in churches throughout the world. Its coverage is inclusive, encouraging and unifying for our brotherhood.
