Your quick and generous response to Lifeline 2022 is a blessing to all of us who work at WNZR. Your gift is a demonstration of your commitment to Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s media production students and to our radio ministry.

 

Our 2022 theme, “You Keep Hope Alive,” inspires us because we see the evidence that God’s light is greater than the darkness. His power to save rises higher than any evil. Hope is more than just optimism because Jesus overcame death. Hope is alive because He lives! As a radio ministry, we hope this theme encourages listeners towards a deeper relationship with Christ, using the music we play and programs we air.

Thank you for being obedient to God’s leading in a decision to support our ministry. Your gift allows us to share God’s message, as we broadcast as a beacon of hope each day. Your gift supports the daily operations of our radio station and enables WNZR to continue broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, throughout the year.

 

As WNZR’s leaders, we are personally grateful for your help. You can be assured that WNZR is devoted to honoring your gift and to being a positive influence in the life of each listener.

 

May God bless you as you serve Him!

 

 

In His service,

Joe Rinehart

MVNU Director of Broadcasting

“Thank you for your generous gift to WNZR. It was so fun being able hear how our station is having a positive impact. Being on radio means we don’t see our audience or usually receive feedback, and so being able to talk to listeners and hear just how much WNZR means to them meant a lot to me in return. So thank you!”
