Live with Abandon

Our Theme

Lifeline 2014 March 5-10

Live with Abandon is inspired by the song from Newsboys, which was driven by Hebrews 12:1-2.

Over the past 27 years WNZR has made a daily effort to share the love of God and His faithfulness through Christian music and programs. The support of Mount Vernon Nazarene University, combined with your prayers and financial giving, has allowed our radio station to grow and reach new people every day.

Last March your response was incredible again as we focused on the theme “The Proof of Your Love” – which embraces Paul’s reminder in I Corinthians 13 that committed followers of Christ must border all their words and actions in love because what we say and do
is a reflection of Him. Your support of Lifeline 2013 has helped us maintain a year-round student staff, make equipment upgrades and replacements, and expand our reach through smartphone applications.

Over these last few months, we have been challenged by the song “Live With Abandon” by Newsboys. The lyrics ask us to place every part of our heart in His hands. Hebrews 12: 1-2 was a verse identified by our student staff that represents the song: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” (NIV)


As a radio ministry, we seek to encourage listeners towards a deeper relationship with Christ using the music we play as well as programs we air. As followers of Christ, we also are renewing our commitment to abandon what may hinder a deeper relationship with Jesus.

At WNZR, we have been blessed with your support. It has allowed us to give MVNU students an incredible living laboratory to learn and improve their skills; it has given
us opportunities to expand our reach beyond the campus; but most importantly, it has allowed us to focus on what we are all about -- providing a Christ-centered message that uplifts, strengthens, and encourages.

Your continued financial support of WNZR through Lifeline 2014 allows us to challenge listeners to “Live With Abandon!” We need and are asking for your partnership in that endeavor. Please pray about becoming a ministry partner with WNZR.
Lifeline 2014 is March 5-8, and we have set a goal of $60,000. Will you help us reach that goal?
