  • No Such Thing as Secular

    No Such Thing as Secular Doug Vande Griend of Salem, OR became a follower of Think Christian because of the ministry’s tagline, “no such thing as secular.” “I’ve believed that all my adult life,” says the 61-year-old lawyer. “In fact, back in 1979, I submitted my third year thesis for law school based on the idea contained in those words.” A Northwest Iowa native, Vande Griend and his wife Carla settled in Salem following law school, in part because he saw the area as a place where the broader Gospel witness was needed in law, but also in that community in general.…

  • Focusing on Young Moms

    Focusing on Young Moms In business, know your customer is one of those elementary imperatives that make the difference between success and failure. To succeed, you’ve got to know what people need and offer a solution to one of their problems. The same is true in Christian media ministry. Know your media user. “What media resources do users need?

This season, we've designed a special Advent devotional series, Waiting In Expectation, to help you take…

  • Celebrating Five Years of Ministry with Family Fire

    Celebrating Five Years of Ministry with Family Fire July brings the fifth anniversary of our marriage and relationships ministry, Family Fire.
