Looking in the “rearview mirror” of 2020, we can but say, “Glory to God for His unfailing love and faithfulness.” The challenges have been difficult at times, but God’s blessings have been more than abundant and oh so sweet!
When funds were in short supply, you, our loyal listeners and supporters, stepped up to the plate and our needs were met. Funds were raised and/or given, equipment and materials were donated to meet our pressing needs.
Whatever the need, God will provide in the best way and at the right time, whether it is for equipment or expertise, materials or messages of truth and hope, lights or licensing, funds or furnaces, personnel or pats on the back. Thank you for your generous and continued faithfulness.
Celebrating our eleventh birthday this past December, we have truly grown and further developed. Our most recent dream and goal of internet streaming to the entire world had become reality as of June 1. Christ’s injunction in Mk. 16:15 to “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel…” is now being fulfilled by Strong Tower Radio.
God’s character is being proclaimed via six STR platforms: radio, TV, website, Facebook, podcasting, and web streaming. We now operate 12 radio stations and 1 TV station. We have 5 full-time employees, 2 part-time employees, along with many full and part-time volunteers. Our broadcast coverage spans half the state of Michigan with a potential listening audience of 5 million, and an annual budget of half a million dollars plus.
As we travel onward into the future, doors are, even now, opening in Southern Michigan to grow STR listening audience by one quarter million and enlarge our annual budget to six hundred thousand dollars. God is proving Himself faithful to His promise of doing “exceeding, abundantly above all that we ask or think, …” (Eph. 3:20).
Countless lives are being changed and/or strengthened in their faith—one listener and one member at a time. New, interesting, and beneficial programs are being produced and aired on a regular basis. STR has something for all ages, from two to a hundred and two. Letters of appreciation and encouragement continue to pour in, inspiring us to do more for Jesus.
As stated by our president and founder, David Bolduc, “STR exists to amplify the 3 Angels Messages of Revelation 14." In our current Covid-19 world, people are searching for answers to life’s pressing questions, plus searching for truth and hope. We point them to Jesus and His Holy Word. We are, literally, reaching our world for Christ as STR is now available on demand using your computer, phone, or tablet, and is on several major podcast platforms.
As we journey on in this life, STR is committed to proclaiming God’s character of love and faithfulness, and God’s people are showing that they are, also, committed to assisting us in this endeavor, however, wherever, and whenever needed. Praise God!
Together and by God’s grace and Holy Spirit leading, we are unstoppable! As “He died to make us holy, let us live to make men free! His truth is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.”
