1-7-14 Voice of Prophecy Reaches New Heights with Relocation in 2014
|Shawn Boonstra, VOP Speaker/Director|
“We are excited to be re-booting the ministry in Colorado,” said Shawn Boonstra, speaker/ director. “Voice of Prophecy will always be about one thing, and one thing only—saving lost souls for eternity. Colorado will offer us a cost-effective, centrally located place to continue our evangelistic work, and to develop new and innovative outreach platforms. Technology has advanced in the last 84 years to the point that we can produce quality media content from almost anywhere. H.M.S. Richards started his evangelistic ministry in Colorado, and we can’t imagine a better place to relocate this ministry.”
The Voice of Prophecy plans to develop land adjacent to Campion Academy sometime in the near future. This fall they will move into temporary offices in Loveland. Victor Pires, manager/treasurer said, “The ministry will have the opportunity to grow and thrive in this new environment. The brightest days for the Voice of Prophecy are still ahead.”
The Voice of Prophecy headquarters has been at the Adventist Media Center since June 1978, from then until November 1995 in Newbury Park, California, and since 1995 at the present Simi Valley location. From the mid-1930s to 1978, Voice of Prophecy was based in Glendale (north of Los Angeles).
H. M. S. Richards began regular radio broadcasts on October 19, 1929 on KNX (AM) in Los Angeles. Later Richards presented daily live broadcasts of The Tabernacle of the Air over KGER in Long Beach, and live weekly remote broadcasts from his tabernacle to KMPC (AM) in Beverly Hills. In January 1937 his footprint expanded over a network of several stations of the Don Lee Broadcasting System, and the name of the broadcast was changed to the Voice of Prophecy. His first coast-to-coast broadcast over 89 stations of the Mutual Broadcasting System was on Sunday, January 4, 1942.
