The mission of Faith And Friends Radio is…
Harnessing the world’s technology to impact the world for Christ…
Unbelievers in their search for Truth and Believers in their Spiritual walk.
Faith and Friends is a 24/7 broadcast outreach of Wells Of Salvation Ministries. WOS was founded in 1979 by Dr. Edmund E. Wells, utilizing the spoken Word, the Word in song, and has from the beginning utilized radio airwaves as one means of spreading God’s Good News.
With the skyrocketing usage of Internet, smart phones and social media, and with daily advancing technological capabilities, founders of Faith and Friends along with the Wells Of Salvation Board of Directors, believed it prudent and good stewardship to establish a worldwide presence through Godly programming of Internet radio.
Faith and Friends is broadcast from Wells Of Salvation studios in Dayton, Ohio. The state-of-the-art facility was built in 2008 and is a tribute to the memory of Dr. Wells and his wife Sparkie who ministered together for over 60 years before being called home to be in the presence of our Lord.
“It’s Internet radio done right.” says co-founder Melody Morris. “Most streaming sounds like a juke box but our Lord taught us to be relational in His time here on earth. He personally ministered among the people.” Morris says while the trend in radio is to voice track and automate, Faith and Friends is intentional about broadcasting their morning show “New Day with Bill & Melody” live and interactive. They also focus much of their time in the community, oftentimes broadcasting live on-location at various times of the day, utilizing state-of-the-art technology.
Bill Nance, a broadcast veteran of over 40 years, member of the Dayton-Area Broadcasters’ Hall of Fame, and co-founder of Faith And Friends, says their music is carefully selected. “It’s music that hits the heart,” explains Nance. “It’s our hope that our music selections will put a positive focus on your day, encourage you, and bring praise and prayer to your lips.”
“Listening habits have changed,” says Nance. In a highly mobile society, people often drive out of the signal range of terrestrial radio, but not so with Faith and Friends. “People can now listen through a variety of technologies right from their car, their bedside Internet radio alarm clock, their home stereo system, their smart phone and more. Even oceans can’t separate us from streaming to others. The time to bring the Good News to the world via this technology is now and at a fraction of the cost.”
