Offering good news from our communities and sharing the Good News of the Gospel, The Christian View magazine is an always truthful and positive influence making a difference using journalism as an evangelistic tool to share the Gospel message, to offer encouragement to readers, and to be an advocate as Christian media to bring awareness to and support the cause of other Christian ministries.

Since The Christian View's founding, this publication's symbols have been the cross and lighthouse, its theme has been 'Shining the light of Christ', and its theme verse has been Matthew 5:16: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." This publication's mission is to shine the light of the Lord Jesus Christ, to serve as a light in the darkness of our world to honor and glorify God.

In sharing that Jesus Christ saves and changes lives, this publication tells others' stories to tell His story. Articles
include The Christian View magazine's interviews with pastors and evangelists, Christian speakers and authors, singers and musicians, sports figures, community leaders, individuals living their faith through adversity and trials or through overcoming addictions, and those involved in local, statewide, national, and international missions and ministry organizations, and more. In addition, guest writers include preachers and missionaries, Christian speakers and writers, leaders from charitable organizations, leaders in education, and others who have written inspirational articles or about mission trips or about missionaries and more.

When The Christian View was founded, thousands of copies of each issue, printed by Hiott Printing Company, were distributed at hundreds of locations in the Upstate of South Carolina, including churches, bookstores, grocery stores, restaurants, other businesses, organizations, ministries, the local prison, and local rehabilitation homes for those overcoming alcohol and drug addictions, as well as to subscribers' homes in the Upstate and out of state.

Since The Christian View transformed into a completely online digital magazine, it has reached readers across this state, and in all 50 states in the United States, and in
173 countries around the world, sharing the Gospel locally, statewide, nationally, and internationally, as Jesus said, in Acts 1:8, that His followers are to be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judaea, Samaria, and the uttermost part of the earth.

About the owner & founder, Publisher & Editor Karen Brewer:

A respected, trusted, and award-winning journalist, she was hired on July 13, 1999 as the Editor of an historic newspaper established in the county seat in the 19th Century. In addition to editorial duties and writing a column entitled Reflections in each issue, she also wrote feature stories on local citizens and wrote several hundred news stories each year, reporting on multiple beats, including government, education, law enforcement/crime, veterans' events, other events throughout the county, and news about churches, charities, and other organizations. She also reported on political elections as a stringer for the Associated Press (AP) and was requested as a writer and photographer in other publications. She was presented statewide journalism awards for news and feature stories (writing and photography) from the South Carolina Press Association and was also given plaques from organizations including the local American Legion post and local Prevent Child Abuse agency in appreciation of news coverage for those organizations.

(She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree and Master of Arts degree from Clemson University.
While an undergraduate student from the ages of 18 to 21, she was employed by Clemson University's News Services and University Relations Departments (now Media Relations), for which she wrote Clemson University press releases sent to the news media, wrote articles published in the university's newsletter and in Clemson World magazine, and wrote the script for a Clemson University television commercial. She also wrote articles about Clemson University's Strom Thurmond Institute for The Clemson Messenger newspaper, and she and a few fellow journalism students created and wrote articles for a publication for Helping Hands of Clemson, a foster home and emergency shelter for abused and neglected children, to help publicize that ministry. Also while an undergraduate student, she was a staff writer for the Clemson University student newspaper, The Tiger, following four years as a staff writer for her high school newspaper.)

She left a career she loved as a newspaper Editor in order to step out in faith and follow God's call to create a Christian publication, to share Jesus through journalism and to be a source of encouragement for readers and to bring awareness to support other Christian ministries.

A follower of Jesus Christ, she believes that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, inspired Holy Word of God. A Southern Baptist, she has been a longtime active and faithful member of her church, the only church of which she has been a member, and she served with six Pastors on the South Carolina Baptist Convention's Resolutions Committee, yet she is supportive of all denominations within the Christian faith, and this publication is not strictly a Baptist publication. She has several cousins who are Baptist Pastors, yet she also is descended from a Methodist Episcopal minister who served in the Revolutionary War. Several Christian denominations have been and will continue to be represented in articles in The Christian View magazine.
