Amidst the hoopla generated from “new” media, it is easy to forget that radio remains a strong and preferred medium for the gospel message. With 91 percent of adults listening to radio weekly, we want to provide hope for people wherever they may be.
As of 2020, Pastor Greg Laurie’s program, A New Beginning, has had its most aggressive expansion, adding over 30 stations (from its 1,000 stations a short year ago) in some of the country’s most populous demographic areas, extending its reach by some 10 percent!
We are reminded of the unique voice Pastor Greg has on radio and that his teachings are changing lives every day. Reaching people where they are is indeed very important, and his “everyman” appeal and mastery of gospel presentation are tremendous gifts that are illustrated by the many stories coming to us.
In an unpredictable year, your support has helped shine the light of God’s hope to listeners like Summer, who wrote to us the following:
My world, as I knew it, seemed to turn upside-down. I felt completely alone, and it felt like I had no one to turn to. Even now, just thinking about it, tears flow down my cheeks. In my absolute determination to stay out of my own head and the negative thoughts that seemed to be flooding it, I turned on the radio . . . and began listening to your show. It was as the Lord was speaking directly to me, through you guys. Your words were quenching a thirst I didn’t even know I had.
Absolute beauty and perfection beamed through my radio, giving me hope and strength and courage sermon by sermon. . . . I really believe that you all played a huge role in saving my life and bringing me closer than I ever could have imagined to the Lord.
As we think of all that God has done in 2020, we’re so thankful for our radio listeners and supporters. Thank you for making 2020 a year of hope!
