About Us

About Faithfully Magazine

Our Mission

Faithfully Magazine is a fresh, bold and exciting news and lifestyle publication that covers issues, conversations and events important to Christian communities of color. We celebrate and inform Christian communities via faithfullymagazine.com, Faithfully Podcast, our print and digital quarterly magazine and via our weekly newsletter.

Our Ethos

Faithfully Magazine reports from an ethnically-diverse and ecumenical perspective in an effort to foster genuine Christian community among our readers. While we interview and profile a variety of individuals and report on diverse subjects spanning the spectrum of Christianity (and occasionally other faiths), we do not necessarily share the views of these individuals, organizations, churches, ministries or the viewpoints of those who write for the publication. Learn more on the Write for Us page.

Our Readers

Our readership is composed of Black, White, Hispanic and Asian Christians, a diversity also strongly reflected among the backers of our successful Kickstarter campaign. Most of our readers are in their mid-20s to mid-40s and are politically active and regularly attend church. Learn more on our Media Kit page.

The Response

A wide variety of people have shown interest in and offered support for Faithfully Magazine and it’s mission to be another channel to reflect the diversity of thought and experiences of Christians of color. Here is what some of them have said about Faithfully Magazine’s first print issue:

“… a new, sweet magazine for these troubled times…”

“What I found incredibly refreshing, was the breadth of viewpoints it encompassed–politically, socially, culturally, denominationally… It is so rare to find a source that is willing to provide a voice to views that don’t even necessarily even align with their own.”

“We have needed a magazine that speaks and promotes Conscious Christianity.”

“… intellectually stimulating, and had writing featured from fresh, new voices”
