An Interview with Charles Colson
Charles Colson is founder (1976) and Chairman of the Board of Prison Fellowship and Prison Fellowship International.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Colson was a captain in the US Marine Corps, a partner in a law firm, and special counsel to President Richard Nixon. He served seven months of a one-to-three-year federal prison sentence after pleading guilty to a Watergate-related charge in 1974. He converted to Christianity in August 1973, as documented in his book Born Again. Colson then used the royalties from the book to begin Prison Fellowship, an outreach organization assisting prisoners, ex-prisoners, victims, and affected families.
