InTouch Ministries

In Touch Ministries is a Christian Evangelical non-profit ministry founded by Charles Stanley, the former head of the Southern Baptist Convention. Stanley, whose Sunday services are broadcast throughout the United States on the ministry's In Touch television program, was rated the third most influential Protestant pastor, behind Billy Graham and Charles Swindoll, in a 2010 survey by LifeWay.[1]

The ministry's stated mission is to "lead people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and to strengthen the local church."[2]
