NRB joins others in the Christian community in praying for Chuck Colson and his family as news of his health decline reached Dr. Frank Wright, President & CEO of NRB. “If we could hear from Chuck today, he would remind us that we are in the Lord’s care every day — we only become more acutely aware of it at times like these,” said Dr. Wright. “Chuck is safe in the Lord’s keeping today, and his family is in our prayers.”
Though there were hopeful signs during recovery from surgery more than two weeks ago to remove a pool of clotted blood on the surface of his brain, Prison Fellowship CEO Jim Liske stated that “it appears our friend, brother, and founder will soon be home with the Lord.”
Chuck founded NRB members BreakPoint and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview with the intent of equipping Christians to understand, live out, and defend the Faith in the public square. Colson received the prestigious NRB Hall of Fame Award in 2010 for his devotion to ministering to the incarcerated in the name of Christ and shining the light of Truth into a darkening culture.
Join us in prayer for Chuck, his family, and the team at Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview.
