In a time where scandal and crime dominate the daily headlines, CBN viewers have come to appreciate Chris Mitchell's encouraging reports on the growth of the Church around the world through movements of revival, prayer and fasting, and even persecution.

Mitchell is perhaps best recognized for his coverage of revival movements. In addition to the Brownsville revival in Pensacola, Florida, he has also covered a recent outbreak of revival in Missouri. His report on the "holy laughter" revivals in Toronto and London was named CBN's "Focus Story of the Year" in 1994. That same year, Mitchell also earned a "Short Story of the Year" award for his examination of religious coverage in network news. He has also reported on such movements as the Promise Keepers and the annual "Prayer and Fasting" campaign led by Campus Crusade founder Dr. Bill Bright.

Another of Mitchell's areas of expertise is the Middle East. He has repeatedly traveled there to report on the religious and political issues facing Israel and the surrounding Arab states. One of his most recent reports focused on the emigration of persecuted Christians from the Middle East.

Prior to joining CBN News in 1992, Mitchell worked for three years as a researcher, producer, and reporter for the Features/Testimonies department of The 700 Club.

A native of the Boston, Massachusetts area, Mitchell earned a B.A. in History at the University of New Hampshire in 1975. In 1987, he graduated with honors from Regent University, earning an M.A. in Communication. While a student at Regent (then CBN University), Mitchell anchored Newsight, a student-produced Christian news program.

In addition to his reports for The 700 Club, Mitchell is also a regular contributor to the CBN/Regent University program Christian World News. As he enters his seventh year at CBN News, Mitchell's goal is to provide in his stories the Biblical "understanding of the times" described in I Chronicles 12:32.
