In a culture that desperately needs godly light and truth shed on the country’s many pressing issues, the American Pastors Network’s (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.net) radio programming, “Stand in the Gap,” is expanding, with the addition of several new stations and a new web site being unveiled today.
The Tennessee Pastors Network is a state chapter of APN, the largest national network dedicated to equipping pastors to be a voice for truth in the public square.
Currently, several stations air “Stand in the Gap Today,” and several more are adding the program to their lineup today. TNPN President Dale Walker, who is scheduled to be a guest on “Stand in the Gap Today,” is paving the way for the program to expand into Tennessee, as is the goal of all state networks that are a part of the APN.
“In the three months since ‘Stand in the Gap Today’ debuted, the program has covered a multitude of crucial topics,” Walker said. “As our culture moves further and further from the truth, Christians desperately need to apply a biblical and constitutional view to the matters that affect all of us every day. That’s why it’s so important that quality programming like ‘Stand in the Gap Today’ grows and reaches even more Americans throughout the country.”
Beginning today, seven radio stations in Texas will also air “Stand in the Gap Today.” The stations in the Kingdom Keys Network of Christian Radio cover a large portion of northern Texas.
“Stand in the Gap Today” is a one-hour live daily radio program that addresses the cultural and moral issues of our time from a constitutional and biblical perspective. With issues like same-sex marriage, the possibility of a nuclear Iran, and Islamic radicalism daily in the news, how should Christian Americans think?
The program communicates to listeners the importance of applying a biblical and constitutional worldview to every aspect of their lives, provides tools to respond to attacks against biblical truth in the culture, and encourages them in their critical responsibility, as ambassadors of Christ, to speak truth in the culture.
The program is hosted by APN President, Sam Rohrer, along with Gary Dull, APN board member and executive director and vice president of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network, (PPN, www.papastors.net), and Dave Kistler, president of the North Carolina Pastors Network (NCPN, www.ncpastors.net). Daily, “Stand in the Gap Today” considers current hard news topics from a biblical, pastoral point of view, making it unique amongst other radio programs in the U.S., and welcomes guests, including caller comments during “Phone-In Friday.”
Today, “Stand in the Gap” is also unveiling its new web site, found at www.StandintheGapRadio.com, where visitors to the site can listen live to “Stand in the Gap Today” each day at noon through WFYL 1180-AM. The new site also details all three APN radio programs, which include “Stand in the Gap Minute,” a one-minute radio feature that airs daily on more than 40 stations, and “Stand in the Gap Weekend,” a one-hour program on Sundays that features a sermon from an APN pastor, followed by a short commentary with Rohrer and others. The weekend program airs on more than 150 stations, including the American Family Radio Network.
TNPN is a group of biblically faithful clergy and church liaisons whose objective is to build a permanent infrastructure of like-minded clergy who affirm the authority of Scripture, take seriously Jesus’ command to be the “salt and light” to the culture, encourage informed Christian thinking about contemporary social issues, examine public policy issues without politicizing their pulpits and engage their congregations in taking part in the political process on a non-partisan basis.
TNPN and APN offers pastors numerous online resources that help clergy choose sermon topics and find information for other church ministries. With some free and some paid resources, topics include marriage, abortion, apologetics, creation, the culture war, economics, education, the environment, history, homosexuality and Islam, along with many others.
The Tennessee Pastors Network encourages pastors to bring together biblical and constitutional principles in their sermons and provides resources to pastors throughout the state. For more information on TNPN, visit its Facebook page or call (931) 267-0816.
