Worship 24/7 is different.
While we realize radio is a type of entertainment, we believe a radio station focused on Worship can foster an encounter with God that is so transformative that a listener isn’t satisfied with simply singing along to good music.
Worship 24/7 is designed to facilitate an experience with God that is so personal that He permanently changes one’s priorities and sparks the life-long process of being conformed to the image of Jesus.
The mission of Worship 24/7 is to ignite a passion for God through worship that results in a life of generosity, discipleship, evangelism and service.
When you listen to Worship 24/7 you are part of a community of people who worship God passionately … and then does something with that experience. Everything we do is designed around that mission.
Buy and build a radio station network and online community broadcasting worship music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
As we worship, as we deepen our relationship with God and learn His word, as we tell others about Jesus, and as we give ourselves away in service the impact can be significant.
Just imagine what one million worshipers could do toward the expansion of God’s Kingdom!
