LETTER FROM THE GM
NEW MEMBERSHIP DRIVE PRAYER TEAMS
If you listened and/or participated in our Sharathon last fall, you are aware that we fell short of our Sharathon goal of $200,000.00 by approximately $50,000.00! That financial shortfall truly handicaps the radio ministry and limits our ability for future growth and expansion.
To remedy that shortfall, your Board of Directors has approved a Spring New Membership Drive April 27-29. I wish that I could tell all of our listeners that we have a nice financial cushion that we can fall back on. But the truth is - we don't! We don't have a savings account, stocks, bonds, treasury notes or money market certificates. All that we have is a checking account that gets pretty thin by mid-summer. We depend on God to supply our need, just as each one of you. The Word of God says, "...You do not have, because you do not ask God." - James 4:2 (NIV) We are asking you, our faithful listeners and financial partners, to be praying earnestly during those three days as we appeal to our new listeners to join the NewVision FM Family.
Our radio ministry is like the iceberg graphic below. NewVision FM has a big voice. Our five stations broadcast to all or part of 23 counties in Northwest Ohio with a potential listening audience of three-quarters of a million people. But as you can see from the graphic below, only 10 percent actually financially support us.
........90% of our listeners love us, but don't support us
This ministry was founded in prayer! We believe in prayer! Prayer is our lifeline and the heartbeat of our ministry. I truly believe that prayer moves mountains and I thank you in advance for praying and helping us get over this financial mountain! God bless you!
