Think Christian is a collaborative digital magazine that recognizes contemporary culture – from politics to the arts, from business to science – as falling beneath God's sovereignty. We engage this God-owned, human-driven world by discussing what it means to live as a Christian within it.
Think Christian is a project of ReFrame Media, the English-language ministry of Back to God Ministries International. Think Christian joins a portfolio of projects that help you see God’s story in your life. We produce a variety of media including children’s radio, print devotionals, ESL stories, under-heard Christian music podcasting and video blogs. Our goal is to invite you to see in a new way what God is already doing in your life. God reveals, revives and renews, and when you see it, your whole world is reframed by a new perspective.
For 70 years, Back to God Ministries International has covered the world with an ever-growing electronic media ministry. We beam the message of salvation to all corners of the earth in 10 major world languages, using radio, television, the Internet, telecommunications and the printed page. Ministry leaders, natives to their own language cultures, provide leadership in production of culturally relevant programs and follow-up in order to present Jesus Christ and help people to grow in their faith. Back to God Ministries International is the electronic media ministry of the Christian Reformed Church in North America.
