LETTER FROM THE GM
NEW FRIENDSHIP DRIVE PRAYER TEAMS
If you listened and/or participated in our Sharathon last fall, you are aware that we fell short of our Sharathon goal of $200,000.00 by approximately $75,000.00! That financial shortfall truly handicaps the radio ministry and limits our ability for future growth and expansion.
To remedy that shortfall, your Board of Directors has approved a Spring New Friendship Drive May 17-19. We depend on God to supply our need, just as each one of you. The Word of God says, "...You do not have, because you do not ask God." - James 4:2 (NIV) We are asking you, our faithful listeners and financial partners, to be praying earnestly during those three days as we appeal to our new listeners to join the NewVision FM Family.
Because of our shortfall, on page 3 you will find information and facts about the cost of several pending projects for which we are seeking much needed funding to acquire and complete.
Our radio ministry is like the iceberg graphic below. NewVision FM has a big voice. Our five stations broadcast to all or part of 23 counties in northwest Ohio with a potential listening audience of three-quarters of a million people. But as you can see from the graphic below, only 10 percent actually financially support us.
.........only 10% of our listeners actually support us
......... 90% of our listeners love us, but don’t support us
If we could double our current supporters, our financial worries would be over! This is where YOU come in. You have sacrificed and helped us to make NewVision FM what it is today. Because of YOU, we touch thousands of lives on a daily basis. We are not asking you to financially sacrifice more, but we are asking you to start praying for our Spring New Friendship Drive right now. This ministry was founded in prayer! We believe in prayer! Prayer is our lifeline and the heartbeat of our ministry. I truly believe that prayer moves mountains and I thank you in advance for praying and helping us get over this financial mountain! God bless you!
