A Letter from the President

“Our status as a ‘Kingdom Megaphone’ greatly impacts the world around us for Christ.”

God is doing amazing things through the listener-funded ministry of Encouragement FM—89.5 KVNE and 91.3 KGLY. Each week, we hear from people here in East Texas whose lives are changed as they receive the Hope that can only come through a relationship with Jesus Christ. God has expanded our borders with the largest audience size in our history, allowing us to impact more hearts than ever before!

Not only is God impacting hearts on-air, He is changing lives all over East Texas through KVNE and KGLY. Leveraging the powerful “megaphone” of media He has given us, we’re able to mobilize people to action and unite our community. We’re seeing hundreds of listeners become “the hands and feet of Christ” by serving others. Whether it’s donating clothes for orphans, “adopting” less fortunate families at Christmastime, or cheering up hospitalized children with Valentines, our listeners make a powerful difference by helping those who need it most.

And this impact extends beyond East Texas to around the world. In Liberia, we recently helped to restore a broadcast studio for a Christian station ravaged by fire. In Romania, God allowed us to come alongside a Christian media ministry so the Good News could penetrate their countrymen’s hearts in their native tongue.

We have also supported the spread of the Gospel through shortwave radio to people in the Middle East, as well as pastors in China.

President & CEO

We have even given strategic insight to friends at a Christian station ministering to the Quechua people in the mountains of Bolivia.

In 1983, Encouragement FM was founded to bring hope, healing, unity, and the message of God’s love to our community. Now, some 30 years later, we remain steadfast in our mission to glorify God by encouraging people, connecting our community, and pointing people to Jesus Christ. We are excited about the future and we invite you to be a part of it!

In His Service,
