Rock the Faith Radio Show has aired on the CWR Network for approximately 10 months. It’s functioned as a 1 hour show to talk about things of faith and to play Christian Rock music. When Berch Harris, the executive director of the CWR network, asked if I wanted to have my own station, I had so many thoughts running through my mind! Will I be able to find 24 hours of content? How will I gain listeners? Will I have time to do this? Am I actually capable of running a Christian Radio Station? After some prayer, and wise counsel from my mentor Paul, and my friend Corey, I decided to give it a go!
Immediately, the thoughts rolled in! The Holy Spirit was speaking so fast I could hardly write down the ideas! He revealed to me how every moment of my walk as a ministry leader, school teacher, father, Christian songwriter, and worship leader has led to this moment. Even my past as an alcoholic, a drug addict, a school teacher, and a divorcee has prepared me to direct my own Christian radio station. Wait! Did he just say being a drunk can help him run a radio station? I sure did!
Very few of the years of my life have been spent pretending I had it all together. I am not afraid to use my past mistakes to demonstrate my need for a savior! Rock The Faith Radio will focus on the things of faith which people are often scared to question. Who in their right mind would go on the radio and admit they are not an expert in the area they are speaking about? I am no theologian. I am no pastor. I am a sinner who was saved late in life at the age of 34. I don’t have the answers, but I’m not afraid to ask questions, nor am I afraid to question the answers.
When you listen to Rock The Faith Radio, you can expect to hear some topics that may cause you to question. The intention is not to speak of issues to cause controversy; the intention is for us to refine our thinking about who is Jesus, and what is our role in co-creating a world of peace and love about which He spoke. As the producer and director of the content, it is my hope to provoke peaceful discussion and create dialogue amongst ordinary people who don’t have degrees in theology.
When you listen to Rock The Faith Radio, you will also expect to hear Christian Rock music by unsigned artists. Wait a minute! You’re going to play music by artists that no one’s heard of? That’s right! The way we hear music is changing. If listeners want to hear what’s popular, they needn’t spend much time looking. Listeners can tune in to a local Christian radio station, YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, the list goes on and on. Good musicians with a passion for Christ are creating music every day that no one hears, excpet you. You will hear it on Rock The Faith Radio. I am a Christian Rock artist, and I know what it’s like to have a message I want to deliver through song only to have just a few people hear it. On Rock The Faith Radio, literally anyone with an internet connection can hear fresh music!
I have already begun contacting bands and accumulating some great music I can’t wait to share. If you’re a Christian Rock band, please give me a shout! Soon, I will assemble on air personalities as well who have something to say about rock music and faith! If you wish to join me in this journey, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your voice on the airwaves!
Stay tuned, and rock the faith!
