Christian Radio

This blog has been established to talk about Christian Radio (the industry) and to encourage those who are working in the industry. I would like to talk about news, music, programs and whatever else comes up. My goal is to get listeners and the professionals to talk about the issues to help make the ministry even better and stronger. Tell all you know about this blog.

Been thinking about this lately

Seeker churches. What are they? Is there such a thing?

The Bible clearly says in Romans 3:10, 11 "As it is written: There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God." I would think that the Bible is the final authority on that, wouldn't you?

But, on the other hand, God is the one that draws people to Himself. So, are these the poeple for which these churches have been created?

Sometimes I wonder if these churches have been created for people who have no desire to go deeper in their faith, or for people who just want to get lost in church. What's the purpose of "Seeker Churches?" If seeker churches are really for people who are 'seeking' what happens to them once they 'find' what they're seeking?

What does this have to do with Christian radio? Well, I think there's a place for 'seeker' radio stations. Afterall, Trans World Radio, HCJB World Radio, Far East Broadcasting Company and others use radio to reach those who have never heard the message of the Gospel before. Then, once they come to Christ they establish community fellowships to help them grow. Perhaps that's what 'seeker' churches are doing. I certainly hope that's what's happening.

There is a great article that takes this a little further at by John Piper. It's pretty interesting.
