Since 1971, Rejoice Radio has broadcast Christian music and programs to encourage listeners and witness in

In the early 1970’s, God placed a desire on the heart of Dr. Arlin Horton to
start a Christian radio station for listeners along the upper Gulf Coast. On June 21, 1971, WPCS began

Network on its first satellator station in Eugene, Oregon.
Now, through the financial support of its listeners, Rejoice Radio is
broadcast on almost 40 stations and the Internet, reaching listeners across America and around the
world. Rejoice Radio continues the vision of broadcasting Christian music and programming to

will continue to do through this listener-supported Christian radio ministry, we can only say, “To
God be the glory, great things He hath done.”
