In just eight years, Faith FM has been changing lives around Australia. And the stories keep coming.
There’s no doubt about it, since its inception, Faith FM is having a major impact around Australia.
When church members from two country churches in Gippsland Victoria asked God for greater opportunities to reach people for Christ eight years ago, an explosion of opportunities rose in the area of radio that was beyond what their small team of volunteers could keep pace with. When funding dried up 18 months later, there was a question whether this ministry could keep going. But despite what seemed like a funding drought for the next five years, stories kept coming out of Adventist churches of new baptisms through this radio network.
Two years ago, the Adventist Church in Australia took Faith FM on to become its official radio network across Australia. This unique radio ministry continues to go from strength to strength. Here are just some recent stories worth sharing.
Faith FM – 4 stories in just 8 weeks.
- Teesh* heard Faith FM when she was living in the rural south-western town of Cobden, Victoria and started attending the local church nearby. She wanted others to be blessed by Christian radio and paid for a relay transmitter to be installed in her own home. Later, she moved to Melbourne, and continued to grow in her faith. Teesh has just made her commitment public through baptism at an Adventist Church.
- As a result of Faith FM, Janice* has just started attending this same local church too.
- Last month, Stephen* a young man from Gladstone attended the Adventist conference-wide camp held in Brisbane. For the past six months, he has been studying the Bible with his local pastor as a result of what he has heard on Faith FM.
- Last Saturday, Juni* a Faith FM listener walked into a Newcastle (NSW) church for the first time.
These are just four stories that have been relayed to the Faith FM team in the last eight weeks, and there are so many more. The growing team praise God for what He is doing, and they ask for your prayers and support as they seek God’s guidance for new avenues to expand and make it even more effective in reaching people for Christ.
