Western Indian Ministries offers an exceptional opportunity for an experienced and accomplished Radio Station Manager who has a passion to use media as a tool to help make disciples for Jesus – and turn a ripe mission field (Navajo Reservation) into a missions force! The Station Manager would oversee KHAC AM, KWIM FM, Window Rock AZ, and KTBA AM, Tuba City AZ. He /she would be responsible for the overall development and growth of the 3 multi language, and multi format, community minded radio stations. Duties include coordinating station program content, communications/ public relations, overseeing staff, and generating revenue for the commercial stations.
It is a great time to be in Christian Radio … especially if you want to make a difference and are creative, have an interest in Native American people and would like to work on the Largest Indian Reservation in the US. You will serve with a talented and creative team as you will get to live in one of the most beautiful locations in the US.
Western Indian Ministries is on the cutting edge of bringing about much needed change among some of the most beautiful yet underserved and “at risk” people groups in the US. Other departments at WIM include Youth, Elementary Education, Community Outreach, and Business as Mission.
Window Rock is the capital city of the largest Indian Reservation in the US and is located on the state line of Arizona and New Mexico. The Navajo Nation (Diné) boasts of its exceptional beauty- with towering mountains, beautiful canyons, hi-deserts and rocky mesas. Window Rock’s elevation is 6800 feet above sea level where the climate is moderate, with capacity for some significant snow in the wintertime, and relatively mild days in the summer. Window Rock’s population is listed at 2,712 but is estimated to reach around 20,000 during weekdays when tribal offices are open. Window Rock’s main attractions are the sandstone window formation, the Navajo Nation Museum, the Navajo Nation Zoological and Botanical Park, and the Navajo Nation Code Talkers memorial. The closest public airport service is in Albuquerque, 160 miles to the east. Recreation and outdoor activities abound close by!
The idea of radio programming today may be an antiquated one in some markets; however, the forward-thinking individual in this job will need to understand the culture challenges and learn to navigate through some perpetuating historical and social challenges, while being focused on the stories, the sounds and customs of the Navajo people, through the on-air and streaming broadcast media – to accomplish the mission and vision of Western Indian Ministries.
