Staff and Board of Directors

Christian Crusaders is served by an eighteen-member Board of Directors who meet quarterly to set policy and make decisions based on the mission of the ministry. Each member also serves on at least one of eight standing committees: Broadcast, Budget, Investment, Personnel, Promotions, Nominations, Strategic Planning and Web Site.

A staff of two full-time employees, the Executive Director and Technical Editor, and a part-time Financial/Office Assistant take care of the daily functions and responsibilities of the ministry. Volunteers help with mailings and other tasks.
