ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (ANS) – Faith Comes By Hearing audio BibleJerry Jackson, left, and his wife, Annette ministry has again been awarded the prestigious 4-star rating from Charity Navigator – a charity evaluator.

According to a news release from Faith Comes by Hearing (FCBH), being recognized for the sixth straight year elevates the ministry into the top 3 percent of all charities.


Charity Navigator said this means FCBH “demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”

FCBH said in his notification letter, Charity Navigator’s president and CEO Ken Berger wrote, “We are proud to announce Faith Comes By Hearing has earned our sixth consecutive 4-star rating. Only 3 percent of the charities we rate have received at least six consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Faith Comes By Hearing outperforms most other charities in America.”

FCBH said the recognition is especially meaningful, as “Charity Navigator evaluates 10 times the number of charities than (its) next closest organization, and draws more visitors to (its) website than every other charity evaluator combined.”

Jerry Jackson, FCBH’s founder and president, said in the news release, “It has always been our priority to be good stewards with every donation given to complete our mission. The best way to ensure accountability is to be open with our finances.”

He added, “As an outside and impartial evaluator, Charity Navigator’s continued recognition of our transparency and fiscal responsibility is testimony to our current and prospective donors that they are giving to a ministry that is using their funds wisely.”

Do you enjoy reading and writing Christian literature?

Inside The Pew is set to launch a portion of its web magazine that will target Christian writers and authors.

Grelan Muse, founder of Inside The Pew, said the section will provide new and established Christian writers with another avenue to market their work.

“Our ultimate goal is to unite the body of Christ, and the writing talents of these authors is another means to meet the goal,” Muse said. “Judging by synopses we have received thus far, there’s a variety of topics covered in the books, from autobiographies to overcoming church hurt. Our readers will benefit from learning the stories of the authors regardless of the topic.”

Muse said the first review written by a Pew staff member is slated to premiere April 9. Until the premiere, there will be occasion preview reviews. Muse said a new work will be reviewed every other week. Author spotlights are available for a small tax-deductible donation to the ministry.

A section dedicated to short stories and poetry is also in the works, he said.

For consideration, email a synopsis or a press release, a photo of the book’s cover, and a photo of the author (f available) to For eBooks, submit a link to the work.
