Life in His Hands Christian Newspaper celebrates 1st year
Southern California’s only Christian Newspaper publishes from the Inland Empire
Riverside —The only Christian Newspaper in Southern California is celebrating a full year of ministry publishing from the Inland Empire. With the release of the April 2015 issue, Life in His Hands Christian Newspaper will have distributed more than 100,000 copies and reached nearly 400 distribution locations. In addition to the printed ministry, Life in His Hands (a nonprofit 501c 3) also operates a Christian-focused webpage, a social media campaign, an audio podcast, and a Pastoral Counseling ministry.
Published since April of 2014, every issue of Life in His Hands Christian Newspaper contains a daily Bible-Reading guide along with editorial about what God is doing in the Inland Empire. Additionally, scripture can be found in every issue, allowing for a connection with the Word from practically anywhere. “We want to be able to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to Christians and non-Christians alike,” says publisher Chris Thompson. “To be able to distribute a Christian print product that can reach into the nooks and crannies of the IE is an amazing responsibility.”
“Of course you can find Life in His Hands Christian Newspaper at many churches, but also at many secular locations and businesses,” states Thompson. A recent distribution partnership has expanded the reach of the paper to include coffee shops, ice cream parlors, community centers, and many large supermarkets such as Albertsons and Stater Bros. “It’s these non-traditional locations that we are excited about. They allow the ministry to find people who are looking for Hope, but have yet to have found Jesus Christ.” The newspaper is free of charge, so any church or organization that would like to have issues delivered is asked to call (951) 638-9210, and ask for Kelly.
The April 2015 issue (issue 10), will focus on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and offer evidence for this doctrine of Christianity. A 30-Day Reading Challenge will also be included as well as book reviews, the entire Easter story from the New King James Version, and analysis of the Easter story from Jeff Cate, Professor of New Testament at California Baptist University. The issue is available for free at many locations, and online at LifeinHisHands.org.
