Founded in 1988 by Lord Edmiston, CV exists to introduce people to Jesus and encourage them to become his true followers. He wanted to use his business experience and resources to engage in evangelism, leadership training, and ministry opportunities around the world to be a catalyst to others, to do things the local church can't do, and to help reach many more people with the Gospel. In recent years, the internet and social media has allowed CV to provide international online evangelism resources such as yesHEis, alongside multiple other activities that are focused on sharing the Gospel in the online mission field.
