Whitcomb Ministries to launch radio program

Encounter God’s Truth will debut on SermonAudio.com in August.

Whitcomb Ministries, Inc. announced today that it will launch an innovative weekly half-hour radio teaching program on Aug. 6. The program, Encounter God’s Truth, will feature the classical Bible teaching of author and theologian Dr. John Whitcomb.

2011 is proving to be a banner year for Dr. Whitcomb, who is celebrating 60 years of public ministry and the 50th anniversary of The Genesis Flood (Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, 1961), the groundbreaking creationist book that he coauthored with Dr. Henry Morris.

Encounter God’s Truth will utilize a unique format. In addition to providing in-depth teaching by Dr. Whitcomb, it will also allow listeners to receive answers to questions about the Bible and Christianity each week, drawing upon Dr. Whitcomb’s many years of study in God’s Word.

The program is scheduled to launch on radio stations the weekend of Sept. 3 and 4. Prior to that, four pilot programs will be placed on www.SermonAudio.com/Whitcomb beginning on Aug. 6. The program will be introduced each week by a majestic, rousing version of a familiar hymn—“I Sing the Mighty Power of God.”

Encounter God’s Truth will be produced, distributed and represented by CreationWorks. For more information, or to sign up for the broadcast, contact them at (530) 876-6078 or EGT@CreationWorks.net.

More about Encounter God’s Truth

With the goal of producing a high-quality radio program that is technically excellent as well as Biblically sound, Whitcomb Ministries has formed three strategic partnerships to assist us.

As noted above, Encounter God’s Truth will be produced by CreationWorks, which was founded by Pat Roy (www.CreationWorks.net). Roy has extensive radio experience and has helped a number of Christian organizations launch radio ministries. He is also the creator and producer of the outstanding Jonathan Park radio drama (www.JonathanPark.com), which has aired on Christian radio for the past 11 years – first by the Institute for Creation Research and, since 2003, by Vision Forum Ministries.

Roy is involved in training homeschool students in the art of radio production, distribution and representation. He will be utilizing the talents of these students specifically in preparing Encounter God’s Truth for broadcast each week.

Those who tune in to our program will also hear another familiar voice in addition to Dr. Whitcomb’s. The host of Encounter God’s Truth will be well-known Christian radio announcer Wayne Shepherd (www.WayneShepherd.net). Shepherd spent more than 30 years with Moody Broadcasting and has worked on a number of highly-regarded Christian radio and television programs. His mellow tone will form the perfect frame around Dr. Whitcomb’s timeless teaching.

The music for our program is produced by Ray Britt, a talented composer whose work has been used on several radio projects.
