Changes are under way at the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview.

The organization has named John Stonestreet as president. Since the death of Chuck Colson in 2012, Stonestreet has served as cohost with Eric Metaxas on Colson's daily radio program, "BreakPoint." Stonestreet, an author and popular conference speaker, says the Colson Center has been a division of Prison Fellowship but that is in the process of changing.

"With the approval of the board and the blessing of both organizations, Prison Fellowship and Colson Center are separating, which will allow both of us to pursue our mission and vision more clearly and in a more focused way," he explains.

Stonestreet says they want to expand the reach of the Colson Center to help Christians be an influence in culture.

"Especially in what you might call a new cultural moment where Christians are trying to figure out what is it like to be faithful to truth in a culture that's certainly post-Christian, as Chuck had predicted,” he says. “What is it like to live out our faith? That's really what the Colson Center has always been about and will be about in the future."

The Colson Center also announced the appointment of Steve Verleye as executive director.
