SAVED!

 

Whether someone has come to Christ or needing encouragement during the day-to-day, God uses Air1 to SAVE! Check out these stories from two Air1 listeners...

 

I've never been sure if I could donate any amount. But Air1 was crucial in my accepting Christ and that led to me listening to it around my husband and helped led him to Christ as well.

 

It amazes me how the very minute one worry is lifted from our hearts, another one takes its place with a vengeance.Things you are afraid you might not live through, things you aren't sure you want to live through.Thanks to Air1, I have discovered that I am a normal wife & mom that struggles viciously with guilt in not being the perfect wife, mom, employee, & friend. Exhaustion & frustration are my constant companions.The tidbits of life shared by the DJs, stories from listeners, & the words to the music have helped me discover that I am not alone in my struggling...

Going Through The Motions

 

Everyone goes through rough spots in the road we call life. Maybe one of those rough spots is what is making you hesitant to give during the Air1 Pledge Drive. But, despite those hard times would you be willing to give your anything and a prayer? Check out Joseph’s story for a bit of inspiration!

My youngest son lost his leg about 2yrs ago and my wife about 8 months later was informed she had breast cancer. Last year during the spring pledge drive I stumbled upon Air1 for the first time and I heard the song “Going Through The Motions” and realized, that I had been going through the motions in order to support my family. They were hurting and so was I and all I could give them was simple basic motions and God showed me a better way and woke me up by helping me find Air1. My son and wife are still doing surgeries, but we're happier now, none of us are simply going through the motions now. Yes things are hard for us, but our family is up lifted by God through Air1 and so in return we are supporting Air1 with a thirty dollar monthly easy pledge. We're broke, but not beaten and this is worth the price, because we know there are people out there worse off than us and if Air1 and all of you can support us, then shouldn't we return that favor? God bless you all and remember we are all family and children of the Lord.

 Listen to part of "Going Through The Motions" by Matthew West

What’s your anything and a prayer?

Changing Lives One Arrest at a Time

Not sure how to share Air1 or Christ with others. Maybe try the workplace like Nellie from California . . .

“I work as a police officer in California in the Inland Empire. I support & listen to Air1 regularly. I listen to Air1 even when I am at work in my patrol car. I have been able to share Jesus' story of forgiveness & salvation with everyone I arrest through your station. It has even brought salvation and changed lives to several people I've arrested, including an 18 year old prostitute who was so lost & alone, and several drug users. I can't thank you enough for the ministry Air1 provides; especially all the conversations I am able to begin with others through your music!”

Help Nellie to keep helping those that need Christ most by keeping Air1 on the air. You don’t have to be protecting our streets to be saving lives for Christ. If you let him; God can and will use YOU to reach others for him with just a $1 a day.

Phone ministry at Air1

The music speaks to people’s hearts over the airwaves, and behind the scenes, the phone ministry team gets to talk to to our listeners on an individual basis, one on one.   It’s a chance to show that it isn’t just Air1 who cares, but God cares about their needs.  God put the phone ministry team in place to extend His love to the world, and His timing is remarkable.

Scott, a member of the team, is awestruck at how God uses the calls to accomplish His will.  "I remember one person who had literally just pulled into the driveway after a doctor visit.  She had just been told that she had cancer.  Another time, my phone call literally interrupted the discussion of a couple that had sat down to talk about getting a divorce. God knew they needed a prayer."

Phone Ministry Team Fun Facts

  • Number of people on the team: 10
  • Each team member averages about 1,100 calls per month
  • Total prayer requests taken in 2010 so far: over 26,000
  • Total calls made in 2010 so far:  over 99,000
