A contract with WAVA, a station with a potential listening audience of over 8 million in the DC metro area, and Sirius XM, a satellite stream with international reach, has recently been established for two programs to air with Evangelist Mark Finley, who is a member of the Living Hope church in Haymarket, Va. and who oversees the School of Evangelism there.
The half hour program airs four times a week and focuses primarily on prophecy and health. It also allows for Bible studies to be shared over the air as well as the ability to advertise upcoming events. Finley is working with the Voice of Prophecy to establish a local Bible School specifically for Bible interests that come from listeners in Northern Virginia.
“Pastor Michael Oxentenko, broadcaster for Reaching Your Heart, which has been airing on WAVA for 20 years, asked me if I’d like to meet Tom Moyer, the station’s general manager, to discuss the possibility of joining the WAVA family of programming,” says Finley. “Tom indicated that the station was looking for something solidly biblical, Christ-centered and filled with hope.”
After this initial meeting, Moyer sent a letter of invitation for Seventh-day Adventists to air programs on WAVA, Sirius XM 131 and become part of their international social media outreach.
“Finley and Oxentenko add to Salem’s representation of the broader Body of Christ for these times we live in,” said Moyer in a letter of invitation sent to the General Conference. “I’m asking the Seventh-day Adventist Church to prayerfully consider supporting this Bible teaching ministry partnership, strengthening the voice of Adventism in the Christian Body effort to reach the World with The Gospel. Here at the Salem Media Group, we will do everything we can to make the Adventist voice stronger on our platform and in outreach to the World.”
This powerful statement and network will give Adventists an even broader platform for the proclaiming the gospel. “What an opportunity God has given us and what an amazing door He has opened,” says Finley. “Let’s pray that He will work a miracle through this adventure in faith. We are in something much larger than us to develop 104 programs a year, 30 minutes long, and raise $100,000 annually for air time. This is bigger than we are, but we serve the God of the impossible who blesses big dreams and giant leaps in faith.” Please go to hopelives365.com for more information.
