What Rejoice Radio Means to the Announcers

Rhonda Autrey

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” It’s usually when I’m traveling and do not have easy access to RBN that I realize just how much the station means to me; just how much spiritual encouragement I receive from it on a daily basis.

Dave Barnhart

The first word that comes to my mind when I think of RBN is the word “encouragement.” The music and programming are constantly directing me to keep my eyes on the Lord as I face the challenges of the day. There have been many times that God has used a particular song or statement to meet a need that I was facing at that very moment. Sometimes a song that I’ve heard in the morning will come back to my mind later in the workday, reminding me that He is my ever-present “Strength and Song.”

I enjoy the opportunity I’ve been given to minister to Rejoice listeners as I work behind the scenes helping to compile playlists of Christian music and programs each day. However, it’s during the Share-a-thon that many listeners return the favor and minister to the team at Rejoice Radio. Hearing that RBN is important to listeners as they pledge their support through prayer and financial giving is a tremendous encouragement to each of us. I’m so thankful to have a small part in a radio ministry that is making a difference in people’s lives each and every day!

My wife and I have our alarm clock set to Rejoice Radio, and so many days I find myself getting ready for work singing along with the Christ-honoring music. There is no better way to start the day than having my focus on Him first thing. Many times I find one of the songs stuck in my head all day. I love how Rejoice, even in these little ways, helps keep my focus on my Savior.

Kenneth George

For the past several years I have received daily encouragement from the music on Rejoice Radio. It is a privilege for me to return that blessing to the station by being an announcer for the Share-a-thon.

Ben Lane

I find the variety of programs on Rejoice Radio to be a welcome complement to the music. The programs help me absorb biblical teachings, whether through the full-length sermons of Jon Lands and others, the short Pause for a Proverb in the morning, or the day-to-day situations presented in Adventures in Odyssey. But the music, in contrast, provides a way to then express both my cries of need and my cries of thanks to the God who is the source of those teachings.

Since I began working with Rejoice Radio, I have been greatly blessed by the influence of its ministry. Thinking back over the years, I remember difficult circumstances that God has led my family through. I remember how He often used the inspired songs of faith and the programming that were played on RBN to calm my soul and help me get my focus back on Him. Rejoice Radio is a great tool where I can glean encouragement and inspiration on a daily basis. In my support for RBN, I know that I am not just supporting a radio station, but a ministry dedicated to encouraging people in their service to Christ.


Craig Mattson

There’s a wonderful sense of possibility when you slide behind the microphone. I feel like a farmer casting seeds on a field. I realize, however, that a great deal of the effectiveness of the message isn’t dependent on me at all; the listeners have to contribute as much or even more than I do.


Josh McGuffee

Rejoice Radio is truly a blessing. The music is uplifting, and the programs are encouraging. My life has been enriched by the teaching of great men such as Dr. J. Vernon McGee and Russell Kelfer. I have been encouraged and strengthened in my walk with the Lord, and I have been encouraged to be a blessing to others as Rejoice has been to me.

Chad Morehead

The programming of RBN truly provides an oasis for the Christian in today’s media environment. I appreciate how that through Rejoice Radio, uplifting, Christ-honoring music is always at my fingertips whether I am in my car, at home, or working on the Internet. There are few places where instruction and encouragement for the Christian is so readily available.

Amber Mullenix

RBN is a most welcome routine for the morning and afternoon commute! Pause for a Proverb is always inspirational and Creation Moments is entertaining and educational! My children get excited and loud when they hear a familiar song and then get very quiet and settled when the Rejoice Bookshelf starts. I’m so thankful to have RBN as our “go-to” station where each program and song are setting our affections on things above!

Tonita Ohman

I am grateful to have the right kind of music and messages to listen to when so much of what is coming through television and radio today is not worthy. I keep Rejoice Radio on in the background throughout the day, and it keeps me in a good frame of mind as it reminds me Who we serve. Many times I find myself humming a song or thinking about a verse that I heard. It is also a blessing to me to hear from our listeners about how God has used Rejoice Radio in their lives.

Robert Penley

As part of the original engineering team that made the Rejoice Broadcast Network a reality in December of 1996, I was committed to making the RBN vision a technical reality. That vision—solid biblical teaching, Christ-honoring music, and quality programming—has not changed, and neither has my support. I could not have imagined that my behind-the-scenes role would eventually transform to on-air encouragement as a guest announcer during Share-a-thon. It is a privilege for me to share in this ministry that has blessed my family for so many years.

Nick Ryan

I appreciate that Rejoice Radio has good, solid, biblical programs. It is a blessing to think about the enormous impact of Rejoice Radio reaching around the world to listeners everywhere. It is so important that Christians have a Scriptural focus in their lives, and it’s wonderful that Rejoice is helping to fill that need world-wide.

Jeff Surgeon

Working at Rejoice Radio is an amazing opportunity. My favorite part is hearing the good news of how the Lord has used a program or a particular song in someone’s life in a specific time of need.

Comment from Catherine in Georgia

“Just a note of thanks for your ministry. I found out about Rejoice Radio after one of our church members began attending PCC....On Tues.-Fri., I tune in after lunch eager to hear the transforming story that will be presented on that day's "Unshackled" program. This show is a great highlight of my day and the time it airs is a perfect time for me to freely listen. Thanks for helping me stay encouraged in the Lord and challenged to believe God for the salvation of my dad among others.”
