OneChild has 318 Hope Centers in 14 countries, already serving over 40,000 kids.
“When someone like Faron applies for a role, it catches your attention. I have known Dice for 15 years and have seen the consistency and integrity in which he approaches all relationships. He has been a blessing in the industry to so many. His character, passion, cultural fit and desire to make an impact make him a perfect fit for the OneChild family” says Mitch Hildebrant, Vice President, Engagement. “He loves forming partnerships with radio stations, networks, and artists that have mutually beneficial objectives.

I am so excited that this new role allows me to be involved in such meaningful work while remaining in the CCM radio industry that I love.”
Dice has served WayFM for over 18 years in various and last January (2021) transitioned from Chief Content Officer to Vice-President of Ministry for Way Media.
