Christian Life Missions (CLM) is the non-profit partner of Charisma Media, established in 1956. Steven Strang, Founder/CEO of Charisma Media and President of CLM, has made it possible to raise funds and help organizations for specific projects and causes through Charisma Media’s resources and its readers. CLM is organized and structured to raise and distribute funds by writing articles and networking with different organizations and ministries from varied denominational and non-denominational backgrounds. Christian Life Missions is an organization with integrity as it’s remained a Charter Member of the Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability (ECFA) and the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), for many years.
Christian Life Missions’ donations are allocated for operational funds so we can continue helping other causes, since 100 % of every designated donation goes directly to the cause.

The Christian Life Missions celebrated its 60th anniversary this year.
Thank God for the opportunity to serve many ministries, organizations and people for six decades.
The ministry began with Christian Writers’ Institute, which included correspondence courses, and an annual conference begun by Robert Walker (Editor Emeritus of Charisma). Christian Writers’ Institute was designed to train writers for Christian Life magazine, a precursor of Charisma & Christian Life.
The missionary thrust of Christian Life began in the fall of 1952 during the Korean War, when a missionary journalist stumbled into a tiny hamlet he had been attempting to locate for weeks. Rumors had reached Seoul that somewhere near the battlefront nearly an entire village had become Christianized. Determined to confirm the report, Christian Life magazine’s reporter had traversed rough mountain roads in his ramshackle jeep in search of the remote village.
The report from his visit evoked such a generous response from readers that the magazine formed a not-for-profit organization to distribute financial aid to the zealous villagers for food, clothing, and Korean language Bibles for them and to use in their evangelistic activity. Today this organization, now called Christian Life Missions, continues to meet other needs in various parts of the world.
CLM began in 1956 and has been serving the body of Christ ever since. Over the years, CLM has consistently sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to support ministries and missionaries worldwide. Members of both ECFA and NAE, CLM maintains a high level of financial integrity where every dollar donated goes directly toward the mission for which it is designated, with no administrative costs being deducted.
CLM is fully funded through donations which are periodically solicited through various means. All monies are designated (where specified) or assigned according to needs/projects which are ongoing or currently underway. As a 501 public charity, CLM relies upon the support of its generous donors to help the needs of the many ministries and causes we support.
