HistoryEdit

The online newspaper was founded in March 2004.[2][1] The objective is to deliver news, information, and commentaries relevant to Christians across denominational lines and to bring greater attention to activities of Christians and Christian groups in United States and around the world. It moved its headquarters from San Francisco, California to Washington, D.C. in 2006. In 2017, the website had a monthly average of 10 million visits.[2]

On December 23, 2019, Napp Nazworth, an approximately a ten year veteran of the publication and an editor for The Christian Post, resigned because the magazine planned to publish an article supporting President Trump[3] after he became the subject of an editorial by a peer publication, Christianity Today, in which Mark Galli called for the removal of the president on December 19, 2019, following the impeachment. Nazworth stated that he could not "be an editor for a publication with that editorial voice" and resigned from The Christian Post as its political editor.[4]

MembershipEdit

The Christian Post is a Global Partner of the World Evangelical Alliance [5] and a Member of the Evangelical Press Association.[6]
