WRVL/Lynchburg (Journey Radio Network) held its 3rd Partner Event last week and surpassed its fundraising goal by 104%. In addition, the goal itself was 50% above the previous fundraising goal. The Journey PD Mike Weston says, “The Journey staff was amazed to see how God sovereignly wove a powerful theme of forgiveness and reconciliation throughout many calls, in person visits, and social media interaction.”
The Journey shares a mentoring relationship with KSBJ/Houston and wants to thank Jon Hull for contributing as both on air host and coach during the Partner Event. The Journey is only about 15 months old as a format and the Journey staff is excited and grateful in the afterglow of what was a wonderful Partner Event.
