"People often ask what my legacy will be. The answer is simple. Apart from my family, it will be the living monuments of God’s grace, the people who have experienced a complete new life, and I’ve been privileged to be a part of. At the top of the legacy list will be Danny. He and I have a special kinship, and as I watch him grow in Christ, I rejoice, and I feel pride—the right kind of pride, that is. This is the man whom God anointed to do great things, to be a witness to our culture, to reach out to the poorest of the poor, and to give hope—new hope, indeed—to the 1 out of 32 Americans today who are either in prison or on probation. What’s the answer to the staggering prison problem in America? More Danny Croces." - Chuck Colson

Ibrahim, Colson Scholar
"The Charles Colson Scholarship is truly a mark of God's grace and love for his children. It represents a level of compassion that looks beyond faults and sees needs. I cannot thank God enough for the donors who, through great sacrifice, generosity and forethought, have provided this unprecedented opportunity of preparation for life, ministry and career. Moreover, I am honored to be a part of a line of faithful servants who have become amazing examples of stewardship, service and submission to Christ." - Ibrahim, graduating class of 2006
