About XPian News

Believing that the mandate from Jesus as recorded in Matthew 5:13-16 is relevant to the sharing of the Good News to a skeptical and needy world. This is the reason for this new website, XPian News and what  it is about.

You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world… Don’t hide your light… In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.– Matthew 5: 13-16, New Living Translation

The Start of Daybreak Communications, Inc.

In 1990, Daybreak Communications, Inc., was launched as a publicity service to the religious community to share its message of hope to America’s mainstream media. Over the years, Daybreak has tried to provide new and innovative services.

In 1995, Daybreak launched GOSPEL-NET.COM™ as source for news release archives. Later The Religion Wire™ began fax distribution to America’s religion editors and writers.

In 2001, Daybreak began email distribution of news releases from The Religion Wire™. Clients now can use email only for distribution… this is a low cost method to reach national media outlets.

Now at Daybreak

Since 2001, Daybreak was had a few up and downs related to health issues with parents, but now in 2016…  its time to launch a new website .

The Meaning of XP


The first letter for the Greek word for Christ is a letter called “Chi,” which looks like an English X.  The second letter for the Greek word for Christ is called “Rho,” and it looks like our letter P.  So, many of the early Christians blended together these two Greek letters to create a special monogram for Christ.

Future of XPian News

So what will look like… local news about the Christian community in Aurora and the Fox Valley and beyond, local events, Chicago & national Christian news, local bloggers, and much more. This venture can only move forward with the support of the community… I am counting on your prayers and support.
