Chuck Colson is actively involved in Prison Fellowship and Prison Fellowship International which he founded in 1976. Prison Fellowship partners with local churches across the country to minister to a group that society often scorns and neglects: prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families. In 1983, Chuck established Justice Fellowship, now the nation’s largest faith-based criminal justice reform group.

Chuck continues his work as a radio commentator with “BreakPoint,”a daily radio feature he launched in 1991. BreakPoint is a unique and well-received attempt to provide a distinct Christian worldview on everyday issues and conflicts. The program is aired daily on over 1,000 radio outlets nationwide.
