Insight for Living Ministries is committed to excellence in communicating the truths of scripture and the person of Jesus Christ in an accurate, clear, and practical manner so that people will come to an understanding of God’s plan for their lives, as well as their significant role as authentic Christians in a needy, hostile, and desperate world.
How do we fulfill this mission? Since 1979, the Insight for Living radio broadcast, with its extensive national and international reach, has been the ministry’s major vehicle in teaching the truths of Scripture and for presenting a message of genuine hope and encouragement to a worldwide audience.
The broadcast is the initial step in our mission to teach the Bible, proclaim the Gospel of Christ, mentor and train international pastors and ministers, and provide uplifting messages from the Scriptures that touch the hearts of our listeners around the world. Insight for Living Ministries is also committed to walking alongside our listeners after the broadcast ends, by providing support and prayerful encouragement via biblically trained pastoral counselors, Searching the Scriptures studies, Touching the Heart gift books, MP3s, and much more.
If you have a few more moments, please take a more in-depth look at some of the behind-the-scenes support ministries devoted to serving our listeners across the world.
The Insight for Living Ministries Biblical Counseling department comprises seminary-trained pastors who help meet the spiritual needs of Insight for Living’s listeners around the world through biblical counseling and training others for ministry. Our confidential biblical counseling includes a ministry of prayer, comfort, spiritual direction, and instruction to promote growth in Christ. We accomplish that mission by developing educational and counseling content that is fashioned into letters, Web articles, and other printed products. We also offer biblical advice to listeners who call our direct line for phone counseling appointments, and we provide training and consultation for our field pastors and their ministry teams around the world.
Our pastor-to-pastor line offers help to pastors, church leaders, and their wives by assisting them with questions on the Bible and its application as well as counseling for personal or professional issues. We also have a specialized ministry specifically for prisoners. Our staff responds to roughly 3,000 phone calls, e-mails, and written letters per year.
Insight for Living Ministries desires that all people know the truth found in God’s Word. Our ministry calls this passion Vision 195—our hope that individuals in all 195 countries of the world can hear, read and understands Chuck Swindoll’s biblical teaching and be ministered to in their heart language. People from all walks of life and languages are desperate for the truth that provides genuine hope and encouragement that can only come through Christ. To meet that need, we employ theologically trained pastors in many countries as well as capitalize on Dallas Theological Seminary graduates and interns in our home office. These pastors and interns work to ensure that our content is presented in an accurate, clear, and practical manner, all the while offering hope and real-life applications to the lives of people everywhere. We currently minister in Arabic, English, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, and Spanish. Our international-language ministries offer broadcasts on more than 1,000 stations, and language-specific Web sites, as well as provide many printed publications.
One of the strengths of our international ministries is that our pastors live, work, and minister in many of these 195 countries, so Chuck’s heart for preaching and teaching God’s Word and offering the hope of the gospel can be expressed locally. This allows these pastors to lead local churches, mentor young pastors, and provide counseling in person. For more information on our international ministries, visit www.vision195.com.
