McCarthy Statement on the Passing of Charles W. Colson

Washington D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-22) released following statement regarding the death of Charles W. Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship:

“Chuck Colson lived an extraordinary life in the service of both his country and his faith. As all humans do, Chuck learned that he was not infallible. He spent the rest of his life helping others find redemption through faith, just as he had. As founder of Prison Fellowship, which has ministered to prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families since 1978, Chuck and his family can be proud of the legacy he leaves behind. Judy and I offer our prayers to the Colson family as they mourn the loss of Chuck.”
