Wayne Pederson joins PraiseLive Team!

PraiseLive announces the addition of Wayne Pederson as Global Ambassador.  Along with Executive Director David McIver and COO Tim McDermott, (pictured at left) Wayne will be helping make worldwide connections for PraiseLive which currently is directly accessible to 53 million households across the US and the World. 

David McIver said “Wayne has been a friend and mentor for over 20 years and is known as a servant leader in our industry.  My favorite memories are the times of prayer in his office as we asked God to expand our borders and help us to reach people with the good news of Jesus.”

Wayne Pederson added “Contemporary Christian music is a universal language.  I’ve seen it!  Now the World Wide Web enables Christians around the world to join in worship through new social media.  PraiseLive is using the new media to connect all nations in worship. 

All of my ministry career I’ve been passionate about Christian music as an effective means of sharing Christ.  And passionate about using media to bring the Message of Christ to people far from God.  It’s a privilege to be a small part of the PraiseLive team in connecting this Christ-honoring mission to partners across the country and around the globe.  Let the whole world sing for joy.  Ps. 67:4”

Wayne’s resume includes leading Reach Beyond and senior leadership positions at Moody Broadcasting, NRB, CMB and Northwestern Media (KTIS/Minneapolis).
