Support our Radio Ministry and Reach the World


Go and make disciplesRadio Ministry Really Can Reach the World.

“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy, for you have been my partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now.” (Philippians 1:3-5 NLT)

This is what the Apostle Paul wrote to those who supported him in his Great Commission ministry.  Imagine if the Apostle Paul could have used a Radio Ministry to Reach the World with the Gospel.  Imagine the blessing of those who supported him. Imagine if you could have had that opportunity back then.

Thank you so much for partnering with me and Cindy and others in “spreading the good news.”

The challenge of continually extending the Great Commission across the street and around the world seems overwhelming at times. One method I have found to still be effective both locally and globally is RADIO. Radio goes into homes and businesses, into cars and trucks, across borders, over oceans, and even onto computers and mobile phones.  Social media makes it easier than ever before to multiply the radio message for new and different groups.

Radio is a wonderful tool to send out the Gospel and teach the Word. It is only one tool and it does not replace a local church worship service, or a Pastor, or an evangelistic crusade. However, sometimes radio is the only thing available. Many times radio prepares the way and opens the door for the local church, the Pastor, the Evangelist and the Evangelistic Crusade.

Previous Radio Ministry

For nine years we had a radio program in Greenville on KEMM called “The Pastor’s Study” and then later renamed, “Thirty Minutes to Freedom.” It really sounded out the message to the community and helped our church members spread the message and invite people to our church and to Jesus. Over time God used it in a great way!

A New Radio Ministry Opportunity

We are currently ministering in the Princeton and McKinney area in a “church restart” #churchrestart New Hope Community Church. We are constantly thinking of how we can most effectively share Christ across the street and around the world. #ChurchRevitalization

I have a wonderful opportunity to start a new radio program on a brand new radio station in Princeton, KPTN. KPTN is an internet radio station that is also available as a downloadable app on your smart phone. This new station, managed by Christian broadcasting radio veteran, Rich Hooper, is a family friendly station which features the local Princeton High School ballgames and other community events, and also has quality Christian programming. It is quickly becoming a very popular addition to this community. And since it is an internet station can also be heard around the country and the world.

This entire area is exploding with population growth and Princeton is projected to double in population in the next 2 years according to City Council estimates.  McKinney and Melissa are also experiencing record breaking growth.  Our ministry is located in the epicenter of this growth tsunami.  It is exciting, but we need so much help!

Unique Radio Ministry Format

This program will be in a different format. It will be a 30 minute program on Sunday mornings where we teach the Bible (or possibly even 15 minutes), and also several one minute inspirational messages sprinkled in throughout the week. Those inspirational minutes can make someone’s day and also point people toward the weekly broadcast and ministry. Because KPTN is a new station the cost is very reasonable and we have the opportunity to get in and get our programming slot early.

Radio Ministry is a Partnership!

prayer partnersI am asking everyone I know to PARTNER WITH US IN PRAYER in this Great Commission partnership.  I realize each of us have our own ministries with many needs.  We truly understand and appreciate that.  But we do desperately seek your prayers on our behalf.  Please keep my card in your prayer journal as a reminder.  The last thing I want to do is enter into this ministry without enough prayer support.

Also, please pray about partnering with us in a financial way.  If you sense the Lord leading you to be a ministry partner, we would be greatly honored and will be very frugal and responsible with all that is given, just as we always have.  Feel free to present this need to your class or your church.

A Passion to Teach the Truth

You know me and my passion for communicating God’s Word in a way that makes it easy to understand, provides clear application, and also presents a gospel appeal.

The annual cost for this radio ministry alone is a little more than $4,000.00 ($300 – $400 per month). That amount only includes radio ministry and does not include any compensation.  If you feel led to join us in a financial way, please make your check to “Higher Purpose Ministries” and send to our address listed below.  We are praying for the Lord to provide partners who will be able to give monthly.  Whether you can give $20, $50, $100, as a one time gift or monthly gift, or any amount it will be an investment not only into our ministry, but also into THOUSANDS OF SOULS in the rapidly growing McKinney and Princeton area.

We truly feel the Lord leading us in this direction and are doing our best to pursue it!  As the time grows closer for Jesus’ return, we have to do all we can to get the gospel message out.

Trust me this area really needs both the gospel and a solid message of consistent biblical truth for growing Christians.

Will you please pray about helping me in this important ministry of sharing the Word through Internet Radio?  And, of course, your financial gifts will be tax deductible through Higher Purpose Ministries.

11  So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 (NASB)

Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in this ministry of sowing the seed.

Thanks for all you do for the Lord and for your Pastors and Churches, and for your prayerful support over the years.

Your fellow pilgrim,
