I am a huge believer in the power of Christian radio. It can reach people right where they are…in their car, home or on the streets. You just need an inexpensive radio to hear the life changing message of Jesus Christ. Today, my local Christian radio station, The Joy FM, is holding a fundraiser for a project we have dreamed about since the mid 1980s! I say we because The Joy FM has a special place in my life, I came to know Jesus as my Savior through the ministry of the station. I volunteered at the station from 1988-1991 when I joined the staff of the station from 1991-1995. I have listened since the day they signed on the air and now my son, Aaron works at the station.
Over the past few decades a small Sarasota, FL radio station has grown to share the Gospel of Christ to west Central Florida but covering Tampa Bay has always been difficult. The door to that major metropolitan area was closed…until recently. God has opened the door and now we, the body of Christ need to walk through it. Today, December 11, 2012 we need to raise $1 million dollars! This will increase the radio station’s reach six fold! I think $1 million dollars is a small price to pay for roughly reaching 3 million more souls with the message of hope and love. Jesus paid the ultimate price, by giving his life for our sins. Now we just need to give of our money and prayers to this amazing missions project.
Even if you don’t live in the Tampa Bay area you can always listen online at TheJoyFM.com or on the iPhone and Android apps. Even if you choose not to listen you can give to the work of the Lord so that more people will come to know Him through this powerful radio station. Just click “Give N0w” to donate. Please pray for God to raise up givers TODAY!
Thank you for helping share the love of Christ with your brothers and sisters in the Tampa Bay area.
