Not long ago, Colorado Springs was a small western city with a mix of soldiers, blue-collar workers, and some colorful characters looking to escape urban life. But today, it has become a bustling metropolis that is home to more than 100 evangelical Christian organizations. A small town at the base of Pikes Peak is the location of the majority of Colorado's Christian ministries. In total, over 500 ministries are based in Colorado Springs.
One of the most prominent religious organizations in the area is Lifegate Baptist Church. This church works to bring the Bible and Jesus Christ to people's lives and has been doing so since 1931. Another well-known Christian ministry is HCJB Global, which has been dedicated to making disciples of Jesus Christ through practical media and healthcare tools since its founding. The Navigators is another Christian organization that specializes in text-based evangelism tools. This group was established in the 1930s by a young Californian. Cook Communications Ministries is another renowned Christian ministry that was founded in 1875 by David C.
Cook. He printed pamphlets for use in his Sunday school classes and has since become one of the most important ministries in the world. Coronavirus awareness groups have also helped me recover. One of the best known is Focus on the Family, which first announced its move from Pomona, California, to Colorado Springs in 1990. Young Life is another well-known Christian discipleship ministry that moved from its humble beginnings in the 1930s in Gainesville, Texas to Colorado Springs in 1946. In 1953, The Navigators purchased the property of Glen Eyrie, former home of General William Palmer and moved from Southern California to Colorado Springs.
North of the Colorado Springs Interstate Highway, Colorado Christian University (CCU) has its campus near Denver in Lakewood and has more than 9,000 students enrolled on campus, online and in its regional centers. Colorado, the twenty-first most populous state in the country, has at least 56 Christian ministries on the “MinistryWatch 1000” list of the largest ministries in the country. The Navigators have continued to be one of the pillars of Colorado Springs, with national, international and publishing headquarters.
