Nearly everything we do requires interpersonal communication of some type. But the modes and means of communication have drastically changed from that of our grandparents. How do 21st. Century Christians take advantage of these new modes and use them to the best of their abilities to communicate the hope of the gospel and the love of Christ to the world? Our guest will show us how gratitude, forgiveness, trust, self-assessment and faith can all work together and help communicate a stand out message in a world nearly overrun with information.
In this social media, digitally driven world some people wonder if radio is still a viable way to reach people with the hope of the gospel message. Both of our guests today are on the front lines of Christian radio and they have insights into the dynamic role the radio is still playing in the far reaches of the un-evangelized world and how it continues to be a vital educational tool for believers who have very few other resources. Join us for this enlightening roundtable discussion.
