About Faithfully Magazine

Our Mission

Faithfully Magazine is a fresh, bold, and exciting news and culture publication centering on Christian communities of color. Our mission is to amplify conversations, issues, and events impacting diverse communities. We celebrate and inform Christian communities via faithfullymagazine.com and our weekly newsletter.

The Team

Faithfully Magazine works with a diverse team of volunteer staff writers, contributors, and columnists to ensure that our mission to center Christian communities of color is reflected not only in our content but also on our masthead. Learn about Faithfully Magazine’s editorial team and advisors on the Staff page.

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 Submissions page.

Our Readers

Our readership is composed of diverse readers–predominantly Black, White, Hispanic, and Asian Christians. Most of our readers are in their mid-20s to mid-40s, 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 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 readers 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.”

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

Some of the publications where Faithfully Magazine has appeared…


Faithfully Magazine started 2016/2017 with the mission to keep Christian media diverse by centering our content on Christian communities of color for an ethnically-inclusive audience. In that time, we’ve made an impact on Christian media and achieved meaningful milestones -- such as creating a volunteer Associate Editor role, launching an Editorial Fellowship, and proudly paying our contributing writers. But we need your support to keep going. In addition to partnering with advertisers, nurturing a subscription/membership, and exploring paid live events, we rely on the generosity of readers who see value in our work and in our mission. We invite you to join us, and keep walking with us, in our mission. Every amount, big or small, empowers us to stay the course. Here are a few ways you can join us: We are grateful for your support. Thank you!
