Insight for Living—the Bible-teaching ministry of Chuck Swindoll—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.
The primary means of accomplishing this mission is a half-hour radio broadcast distributed both domestically and internationally. Today this broadcast, known in the United States as Insight for Living, is heard daily on more than 2,000 stations and in more than 186 countries in multiple languages. Insight for Living has indigenous regional ministries in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Brazil, the Middle East, and Russia. The Spanish-language ministry is based in Plano, Texas, and recently God opened the doors to begin ministry in Poland. Insight for Living pastors in these countries translate the broadcast, publish biblical resources, conduct pastoral training, provide counseling, and create relationships with local seminaries.
Insight for Living is comprised of many behind-the-scenes ministries that support its passion for communicating biblical truth and its application. To help meet the spiritual needs of its listeners, Insight for Living offers biblically based pastoral counseling and correspondence, including a ministry to incarcerated individuals. Their children’s outreach, Paws & Tales, equips parents of young children by teaching biblical truths through the animated characters living in a fictional forest named Wildwood. Recognizing that some homes face unique challenges, Insight for Living reaches out to families of disabled children and adults with a special needs ministry.
Insight for Living ministers to local pastors—as they too commit their lives to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word—through leadership conferences and Chuck’s weekly Pastor’s Blog.
In addition, annual conferences and international tours provide a natural means for meeting with radio listeners face-to-face in a relaxed atmosphere.
Insight for Living hosts robust websites and online stores that serve as strategic and convenient means of distributing biblically based content, articles, Bible-study tools, books, CDs, MP3s, podcasts, and other materials. Chuck’s daily e-mail devotionals are received by more than 70,000 subscribers, and his popular social media pages on Facebook and Twitter include many friends.
From its humble beginnings more than 30 years ago, Insight for Living has seen the Lord prove Himself faithful beyond imagination. The ministry remains fully devoted to teaching the Bible with clarity and accuracy for the glory of God.
