Still At The Crossroads, One Year Later

A Note From The Editor-In-Chief:

One year ago today, we launched Freedom Crossroads with just a dream and a lot of prayers. I’ve always dreamed of being able to cover faith and politics in an engaging and thought-provoking way, but I never imagined I would be running a rapidly growing site with an incredible team of people.

The last year has been a wild ride, and there’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. We’ve spent a lot of late nights writing, editing, fixing bugs, and dreaming of ways to make this site better and deliver better content for our readers. But we’ve also accomplished a lot of incredible things:

Here’s just a few things we’ve accomplished over the past year:

  • Published almost 200 news and opinion pieces
  • Received over one million pageviews
  • Expanded our team to include over a dozen talented writers and editors
  • Sent a team to cover the ERLC National Conference in Nashville, TN
  • Interviewed Independent Presidential Candidate Evan McMullin
  • Became officially listed as a Google News Publisher

I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished, but I’m not here to take credit for it. When I wrote the opening piece for this site one year ago today, I closed with three Latin words: “Soli Deo Gloria!” – Glory to God alone. As I write this piece today looking back, I can say without a doubt that we wouldn’t be here without God’s help, guidance, and blessings. God is so good.

To the incredible team I’ve been blessed with: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for believing in a crazy dream, and turning that dream into reality. Thank you for all of your hard work and long hours. I can’t tell you how much each and every one of you mean to me, and how thankful I am for all of you.

To our readers and fans: Thank you for all of the support. Thank you for believing in us, supporting us, sharing our content and telling your friends and family. We couldn’t have made it this far without you. I promise that we will continue to deliver solid content and good journalism, and we won’t let you down.

This journey has already been a long one, but it’s only just getting started. Here’s to many more years and the amazing things that are up ahead. The best is yet to come.

And once again:

Soli Deo Gloria!
