Ministry Highlights and Prayer Focus

Vertical Radio – A Voice in a Dark World

KNMI, our radio station ministry, began 39 years ago. We have continued to minister to listeners in the Four Corners region through music that is reaching our younger population. The positive music and interspersed messages regarding family issues, etc. continues to draw many listeners. I have had a daily interview type program since we went on the air in 1980. It is now called the Four Corners Spotlight. My guests speak to the issues concerning our local governments and highlight many of the great non-profit organizations in our area. We also feature High School sports as we broadcast ball games throughout the school year.  Be praying for our Managing Consultant for Vertical Radio, Devin Neeley, as he provides daily leadership to the Vertical Radio team as they work together to be a voice in a dark world.
