Masterworks Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Masterworks logoMasterworks, a full-service agency serving Christian nonprofits, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary as a company.

In April 1989, the company’s founder, Dr. Ray Schenk, Jr., opened an office with only himself, a computer, a printer, and incorporation papers for the Raymond Group. On his first day, he began calling friends and got his first assignment - a brochure for the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination.

In 2001, the company changed its name to Masterworks, which reflects the company’s desire to engage in the work of the Master.

“As I look back on our history, I think the most important moment was when we decided to focus on Christian organizations,” recalls Masterworks President Steve Woodworth, who joined Schenk in 1992 after 12 years serving at World Vision.

“Since then, we have been honored to partner with great people in so many great organizations,” he adds.

Today, Masterworks has a team of more than 100 people dedicated to their clients and their respective ministries. With the goal to help Christian non-profits accomplish more, Masterworks collaborates with organizations to design effective fundraising and marketing strategies that will help them build deep relationships with their supporters and live out God’s purpose in the world.

Organizations that Masterworks has served include Alliance Defending Freedom, The Colson Center, Cru, Feed The Children, Focus on the Family, Moody Radio, Prison Fellowship, RBC Ministries, and Teen Challenge.

“We’ve helped feed and care for the poor, spread the Good News of Jesus Christ, and influence the culture,” says Woodworth. “Together, we want to amplify the generosity of those who give their time, talent and treasure to work that delights the heart of God.”
