The Messenger is a Christian, Community & Family Newspaper locally owned and operated by Kelly McCullough in El Paso, TX.  After God’s calling for many years to start a Christian newspaper in El Paso, Kelly finally took the plunge and answered the call. The first issue published October 25, 2007.  Despite many naysayers, those who claimed El Paso wanted nothing to do with a CHRISTIAN newspaper, the paper has been very well, and widely received since the beginning. 

The Messenger is an independently owned newspaper, and not backed by any big dollars as is the case with most.  Kelly created the corporation Media 4 Him, LLC which owns the newspaper. Kelly is the only “employee” and utilizes independent contractors to complete jobs she herself cannot do.   

Ten thousand copies of the paper are distributed every other week from El Paso, TX to Las Cruces, NM. There are also subscribers in other states, and other cities in Texas.  Currently there are 330 distribution sites. Of that number 110 are Churches, with the remainder being Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Beauty Salons, Nail Salons, Law Offices, Insurance Agencies, Doctor’s Offices, Hospitals, YMCA, YWCA, Pharmacies, Automotive shops & many more. Any place that people have to sit and wait for anything is a good place for us to be!  People in these places will pick up the paper, read it while waiting and some leave it once they are done. Most, however take it with them and once finished, pass it along to someone else.

The Messenger reaches and speaks to people of all faiths, and the unchurched. There are many Catholic, Jewish and Non-believers who are regular readers and call in to comment on things in the paper.
