Who We Are

Christians Reviving America's ValuEs (CRAVE) is a national, not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization that was founded by Pastor Don Swarthout, who frequently repeats CRAVE's slogan, "We CRAVE Revival in our Churches and the Restoration of Godly Principles in America."

CRAVE prides itself as an organization that actually achieves results. One of the overall goals of Christians Reviving America's ValuEs is to defend the rights that we have as Christians and Americans. Pastor Swarthout elaborates that we have to "get something done for Christians and all Americans before it is too late." In an effort to get something done and inform them about how their rights are being stolen, Christians Reviving America's ValuEs writes 1.5 million letters to Christian Americans every year. The letters cost CRAVE approximately $600,000 per year.

These are some examples of the things that Christians Reviving America's ValuEs has worked on over the past few years and continues to work on:

Held a Ten Commandments Rally in Denver, Colorado in 2000 which was televised live in several cities and featured guest speakers Judge Roy Moore, Pastor Rick Scarborough, and Pastor Billy Epperhart and was ultimately covered in the Washington Times newspaper

Coordinated a national media campaign for a large Ten Commandments Rally of 4,000 people in a Kentucky town of 8,000 featuring Judge Roy Moore as a speaker, capturing the attention of the 700 Club, the Associated Press, and several local television stations in 1999.

Raised $33,000 for Chief Justice Roy Moore's Legal Defense Fund.

Christians Reviving America's ValuEs regularly, but not exclusively, concentrates on these areas:

  • Defending the Ten Commandments and Protecting other Christian Symbols
  • Illegal Immigration and the Improper Imprisonment of Ramos and Compean
  • Exposing the ACLU and its attack on Christianity funded with our tax dollars
  • Radical Islam
  • Same-Sex Marriage
  • Abortion

In addition, CRAVE is an ever-present force acting as a "Watchman on the Wall" -- always watching for other issues that affect our Christian and our American freedoms.

More than 50 press releases have been issued within the past 3 years, resulting in radio interviews in every state and television interviews nationally, including: Fox News, CNN, CBN, TBN, Daystar Television, Sky Angel, LeSea Broadcasting, WATC in Atlanta, TCT Television, KRMT Television in Denver, Rod Parsley, Hal Lindsay and many others all over America.

Pastor Swarthout is a frequent guest speaker and likes to say, "We expect a government based upon the principles of God and NOT upon the lies of the devil."

CRAVE and Pastor Swarthout have also had articles published by the Associated Press in the nation’s newspapers. In addition to all of the national news attention received, Swarthout frequently travels to Washington, D.C. where he frequently makes bold statements to our elected Senators and Congressmen on behalf of our Christian values.

As the President of CRAVE, Pastor Don Swarthout also speaks in various venues to groups around America about these issues and many others. Swarthout believes we must take a stand against our enemies who are “shouting their beliefs from the roof-top of our Supreme Court Building.”
