The weekend broadcasts will feature Speaker/Director Fred Kinsey, who will share messages focusing on some of his favorite texts. He, with co-host Connie Vandeman Jeffery, will also interview interesting authors, mission workers and others about spiritual topics. Joining the broadcast with occasional segments will be Emmy Award-winning reporter Willa Sandmeyer, who will bring field reports featuring people whose faith is making a difference in the world as they reach out and touch lives for Jesus.
The daily broadcast will feature Pastor Mike Tucker and Pastor Elizabeth Talbot in great conversations about the Bible. The Monday-Friday broadcasts will start January 5, throughout January and February, and they will look at the Gospel of Matthew, with special emphasis on the ways that the life of Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecies.
