Encouraging Connections. Sharing Jesus.
God has called the River to a mission of encouraging connections and sharing the love of Jesus. The only way we can do it is through the generous support of businesses and listeners like you. When you give, you may not realize what your entire donation is involved in. Here are the three segments of ministry you’re contributing to:
Your support reaches far beyond your regular circle of influence. Every day, people from all walks of life tune in to hear hope, because they usually aren’t finding it anywhere else. Your investment provides uplifting and encouraging music and on-air personalities who the share the message of Jesus on the radio and online. For 30% of our audience who don't have a church home, and 40% who only attend occasionally, the River may be the only place they will receive that encouragement. For the other 30% who have a church home, 104.9 the River is a great way to keep them focused on Christ.
And now with our two HD stations – TheVibeHD and oRockHD – our reach is growing even further.
Connections lead to great conversations about life and hope. In 2017:
Care and prayer is a vital part of this ministry. In 2017 there were over 1,800 prayer requests on our Prayer Page. Nearly 19,000 prayers were made for those people. Their voices remind us daily about why we do what we do, and we are so thankful God has given us a way to help their voices be heard. With a pastor on staff, we welcome questions, needs, joys, and sorrows with open arms and offer ourselves as a resource for connection. We encourage listeners to get involved in a local church, seek help when needed, and dig deeper into faith. One of the ways they can connect from their own home is on The River’s Blog Page, where we offer all kinds of resources about faith, family, health, and overall wellness. It’s our attempt at meeting people where they are and introducing them to faith.
Your support of this radio station is what makes these extra things possible. We are often asked why we ask for donations when we play commercials. It's because the River is not just a radio station. It’s also a non-profit ministry that is doing dozens of things in the name of Jesus behind the scenes.
It’s all because of God… and people like you. Thanks for journeying with us. If you have any more questions about the ministry, feel free to reach out to us.
Serving with you,
