CRISTA is a family of ministries loving God by serving people worldwide in the areas of education, international relief & development, senior living, and media. Our seven Christian ministries serve all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
To put it simply, you are the reason CRISTA Ministries exists. You, your family, and your neighbors, both near and far, have been the focus of CRISTA since the creation of our organization in 1948, at the same 56-acre campus in Shoreline, Washington, that currently serves as our world headquarters.
You'll find that in the sphere of Christian ministry, CRISTA is unique in the breadth, depth, and range of influence and assistance it provides every day, everywhere. There is one overriding desire in all of this—to love God by serving people. In 2010 nearly 8 million people throughout the world were impacted by the ministries of CRISTA. By God's grace, in the years to come CRISTA will touch even more lives with compassion, inspiration, and the very best care.
