Sunday, September 30, 2012, is an exciting day in the history of Progress Baptist Church. Our radio broadcast ministry, “Pressing On,” will begin airing on WKJV 1380 AM in Asheville, NC. Earlier this year, WKJV begin simulcasting with a station in Bryson City, NC, giving much wider coverage into the western corner of our state.
We had been praying about a radio ministry, and our tentative plan was to inquire about beginning a weekly radio broadcast in early 2013. Then, at a tent meeting in Leicester, NC, in August, Dr. Wendell Runion, director of the station approached our pastor about an opening in their Sunday, mid-day schedule. The church family prayed about the opportunity, several folks committed to support the outreach financially, and the time slot was secured.
We are excited about this new avenue of outreach and look forward to what God has in store. Christian radio is important to saved and lost folks alike, and we are blessed in this nation to have the privilege to share the gospel over the airwaves. May God keep that freedom for the church!
So, tune in on Sundays from 12:30 – 1:00 P.M. on 1380 AM. We are praying that the broadcast of, “Pressing On” will be a blessing to you!
