Lifeline 2023 Theme:

Over the past 36 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 prayer and financial giving, has allowed WNZR to grow and reach new people every day. 


We are grateful for you! 

For Lifeline 2023, our staff chose the song and theme, “God is in This Story,” based on the song by Katy Nichole and Big Daddy Weave. We know without a doubt that God has been in the story of WNZR since the beginning, and he influences our story each day when we trust in Him. The lyrics remind us that in our highs and lows, he’s already gone before us. Isaiah 41:10, our theme verse, echoes God’s promise that he will strengthen us, help us, and uphold us. 

At WNZR, we have been blessed with your support for almost four decades. That support allows us to keep giving MVNU students an incredible real-life classroom to learn and improve their skills; it gives us opportunities to expand our reach beyond the campus; but most importantly, it allows us to focus on what we're all about: providing a Christ-centered message that uplifts, strengthens, and encourages you and your family.

Your generous giving specifically helps us continue to maintain a year-round student staff, have a full-time Assistant Station Manager and a part-time Office Manager, meet FCC obligations, make equipment upgrades and replacements, and expand our reach through digital media. Plus, the overflow of support allows us to keep planning for the future, finishing major projects like replacing the vinyl wrap on our station truck, Big Blue and replacing large computer drives that keep the music going 24/7/365!

Your continued financial support of WNZR through Lifeline 2023 is vital. It helps us share the message of God’s love and hope through music and programs. Please pray about becoming a ministry partner with WNZR.

Lifeline 2023 is March 29-April 3, and we have set a goal again of $65,000. Will you help us reach that goal?

"God blesses us every day with the uniqueness of our individual stories. However, the one constant in them all is Him. It's his love, patience and grace that has and always will be there in our lives. God Is In This Story is our reminder to turn toward God wherever we are in our spiritual journey."

"God Is In This Story means that God has been there for me every step of the way. Through all the hardships and moments of doubt, the theme of my story has always been about God. With God, everything is possible. I am living proof."

God Is In This Story means that no matter what you are going through in life, God is present. When you are going through hard times, when you think you won't make it, God will be right there holding your hand and helping you through the struggle. He sees every part of a situation and has a plan. You may not realize it in the moment, but you will be stronger because He is guiding you through every experience.”
