Ministry Description

"Loving God by Serving People" is a slogan used to describe diverse programs ranging from K-12 education to international relief and development. Ministry operations include: Christian Veterinary Mission, CRISTA Broadcasting, CRISTA Camps, CRISTA Senior Living, King's Schools, Seattle Urban Academy and World Concern. CRISTA's Mission Statement: To love God by serving people--meeting practical and spiritual needs so that those we serve will be built up in love, united in faith, and maturing in Christ.

ServantMatch®
The focus of CVM is to challenge and empower veterinarians and veterinary students in over 30 countries to be instruments of Christ’s love and to express that love through their skill in veterinary medicine.
Set in the stunning forests on the west side of Puget Sound, Miracle Ranch and Island Lake are a camper’s paradise. Fun? Tons of it: boating, swimming, archery, marksmanship, paintball, horses, dirt bikes, high ropes and a skate park. But even more than adventure, when young men and women come to Miracle Ranch or Island Lake, they get a chance to grow closer to Jesus Christ than they ever have before, or, for some, to meet Him for the first time.
CRISTA Media sends this message of hope through four radio stations: SPIRIT 105.3, PRAISE 106.5, AM 630 KCIS, and SPIRIT 105.9
Assist CRISTA as we honor Christ by bringing joy and purpose to the lives of seniors. We provide a spiritually healthy community reflecting Christ's love to seniors!
Our goal is to prepare students for college and for lives committed to excellence for Christ. Our rigorous academic curriculum, broad range of elective choices, student involvement in community-service projects and extracurricular activities are all designed to achieve that goal.
Seattle Urban Academy (SUA) is a safe, alternative, Christian educational community. Since 1989, SUA has served at-risk teens, and is an integral part of CRISTA’s ongoing youth outreach. SUA is also part of a nationwide commitment to increase the national high school graduation rate.
World Concern is a Christian global relief and development organization. With our supporters, our faith compels us to extend life-saving help and opportunity to people facing the most profound human challenges of extreme poverty. The solutions we offer create lasting, sustainable change. Our areas of expertise include disaster response, clean water, education, food security, child protection, microfinance and health.
