You love God? then serve His people

CRISTA Ministries is a faith-based, umbrella organization that envelopes several different ministries focused on education, international relief & development, senior living, and media. Considered one of the best ways to help relief efforts in East Africa by the American Institute of Philanthropy, the organization has seven different ministries under its umbrella.

CRISTA Ministries (an identity inspired by the concept of putting Christianity in action) has always maintained a focus on serving the poor as well as hosting annual missionary conferences and welcoming missionaries during their furloughs. In1970, World Concern, previously “Medicine for Missions,” joined the ministry family as the first of their two international relief organizations (the second, Christian Veterinary Mission, joined in 2003).

In 1993, celebrating the opportunity to continue Mike Martin’s legacy of helping youth at risk in our community, CRISTA welcomed Seattle Street School, now Seattle Urban Academy, to the family of ministries. Through the years, as new rings have been added to their family, CRISTA has retained the mission of loving God while serving people through education, International relief and development, senior care, and media.
