Rita Stewart



Rita Stewart joined the staff of NewVision FM in September of 2009 with the live call-in prayer program, “Praise, Prayer and Power for Today” on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 8:30. Her husband, Jim, and their good friends Walt and Bev Chapman man the phones, while Rita prays for each need and praises the Lord for his goodness on the air.

In 1980, the death of the Stewart’s eight year old son, Matthew, was the pivotal point in their lives when they went from being nominal Christians to selling out to Jesus and making Him Lord and Savior of their lives.

The Stewarts are founders of Everlasting Arms Ministry, and they travel throughout the area spreading light and hope in a dark and hurting world. Rita is a Christian Motivational Speaker and Jim is the prayer warrior behind her. They also share in song as they travel and share God’s goodness. Rita is available to speak to your group, fill a pulpit or share her testimony. You can reach her at (419) 348-4088.
