From Summit Ministries
On Saturday, April 21, 2012, our friend and colleague Charles W. “Chuck” Colson entered the presence of the Lord.
We honor Chuck’s legacy of equipping Christians to understand and live the biblical worldview. When a faithful leader like Chuck passes, others must rise up to continue his good work. Summit’s hope is that Christians everywhere will take up the mantle Chuck Colson has left us.
Summit President Dr. Jeff Myers had this to say of Chuck:
“We at Summit Ministries honor Charles Colson for the life he lived and the legacy he leaves behind. We thank God for raising up such a gifted, humble, and steadfast follower of Christ. Chuck devoted the second half of his life to ministering to the least of these — prisoners and their families. We’re grateful for Chuck’s faithful friendship to Summit Ministries. We intend to honor his legacy by redoubling our efforts to train the rising generation to follow in his footsteps. We offer our condolences to his wife and family, along with the team of professionals at his numerous organizations. Our prayers for them are for the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. And we rejoice that Chuck is finally looking upon the face of his Savior, whom he served so well.”
Summit founder and President Emeritus Dr. David Noebel said:
“Chuck Colson’s testimony and work has had an incalculable impact on the U.S. and the world. I am grateful for his influence and his belief that training fellow Christians to live out the biblical worldview is imperative. He has long been a faithful friend to Summit Ministries. We thank God for Charles Colson. May God comfort his family as they mourn his loss.”
