KBYO/Monroe, LA (Power 92.7) has shifted from Positive Hip Hop and R&B to a 24/7 Worship format. The station name remains Power 92.7. 

KBYO is sister station to Media Ministries KBMQ/Monroe (88.7 The Cross). 

Based in London, Premier Christian Radio network celebrated its End of Financial Year Appeal with more than 100% of the goal achieved. This marks the second highest response in the history of this nationwide media ministry.

God is actively at work through the team at Premier Christian Radio in the UK, and their sister stations Premier Praise and Premier Gospel, as they cut through culture with the truth of the Gospel. This is all possible thanks to the ongoing generosity of listeners, including brand new supporters responding in this appeal. The ministry also took another step forward in establishing a permanent home at an historic former church campus.

Dunham+Company is celebrating with Premier Christian Radio as the ministry brings the message of hope, takes a stand, and makes it possible for their listeners to have a powerful impact in the lives of so many. It’s an honor to serve alongside such a great team!

God’s Pit Crew volunteers and staff are revealing a new home today for a Kentucky family who lost everything in last summer’s devastating floods. This, as our teams deploy across the country providing hope and help for survivors of several tornado outbreaks.

Our team has been working in Letcher, Kentucky, rebuilding a home for the Smith family, who lost everything when massive floods swept through the region. God’s Pit Crew has rebuilt, furnished, and decorated a new home for them in less than two weeks, for free.

God’s Pit Crew President Randy Johnson says, “The recent tornado outbreaks across the country have been catastrophic and heartbreaking. We hurt for all those who have been impacted by these deadly storms and we are praying for them. We are so grateful to be able to deploy volunteers across the country and provide tractor-trailer loads of supplies and Blessing Buckets to help. Meantime, we’re excited to return to eastern Kentucky to build a new home for the Smith family. Our work would not be possible without our amazing volunteers and donors. Thank you to all who support God’s Pit Crew.”
