Can we make a difference? With fewer than 40 people in attendance, the Roundup and Lewistown Seventh-day Adventist churches in rural Montana asked a very important question: “How can we impact our local communities with such small congregations?” Its “graying” constituency felt inadequate and had mobility, health, and age issues. Many argued that the modern technology was “way over our head.” We prayed, and then… God had a sense of humor.


In 2014, a man named Richard called asking: “Would you like a radio station? I will pay for most expenses and help set it up. Please tell me, Pastor, how many radio stations would you like to have?” Richard did not listen to the pastor’s arguments, and the rest is history!


In 2014, three FM radio stations were founded in the communities of Lewistown, Roundup, and Billings, Montana. In the first two churches, the members run these stations: Producing weekly content for their entire city, running computers, setting up microphones, broadcasting on social media.


Whether it’s running radio stations or supporting our local church budget, together we can make a difference!
