May 2019:

Passing The Torch

Brian Barrier has become the new owner and publisher of the Blue Ridge Christian News. The May edition is the first produced under his watch. As we mark this momentous change, former publisher Doug Harrell shares his thoughts about why now is the time for the paper to move to a new owner and why Brian is an excellent choice to lead BRCN to future growth and prosperity.

As you will see, one thing that has not changed is the fact that we bring The Good News every month to you both in our print edition and now increasingly online here at We hope you enjoy this edition and will continue to make us a part of your life both on- and off-line!

Please take a few moments to read stories on our site or download your copy of the paper,. You can also pick up a printed copy for free in many locations. A list of where they are available is here.

We welcome any story ideas or events as we share The Good News to the world.
