Chuck Colson passed away this afternoon at 3:12 pm EST. He had been fighting complications resulting from a brain hemorrhage since March 30.
This is an especially poignant moment for Masterworks because we’re privileged to serve 2 ministries that Chuck founded — Prison Fellowship and The Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview. Both stand as a testament to the amazing work God did in his life.
Chuck was a key figure in Watergate in the early 1970s. That experience changed his life. In the aftermath of the scandal, he met Jesus. After serving 7 months in prison, he spent the next 36 years crafting a different legacy, one marked by humble service and “living monuments” to God’s grace: Prisoners transformed by the love of Jesus Christ.
Join Masterworks as we pray for Chuck’s family and the continued work of the ministries he founded.
