Pastor Charles Stanley has been encouraging people with God’s word. The ministry was founded by Dr. Stanley in 1977, and he decided to call it “In Touch,” which comes from a Living Bible he owned.


Dr. Stanley’s motivation is best represented by the truth found in Acts 20:24, “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love.” This is because, as he says, “It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes people’s lives.”
