Ben Haden Returns To Radio Broadcasting After 8-Year Absence

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Ben Haden, former pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga who long had the "Changed Lives" radio and TV program, is returning to radio after an eight-year absence.

He will have a weekly Sunday radio broadcast over the 160 FM stations of the American Family Radio Network.

It will be aired in Chattanooga on WDYN-FM (89.7) at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday.

This week's topic on Changed Lives is entitled "Scars".

The program will also be streamed on the Internet at WDYN.com.

Ben Haden will also continue 24/7 on the Internet with 3-4-minute conversations seeking to reach a target audience of 1/3 of all Americans who consider themselves Christians, but do not attend any church.

The Internet conversations "are designed to get the attention and to provoke and promote considering Jesus."

The messages and music on FM radio "are designed to encourage the believer and to confront the unbeliever in compassion and in love. The radio messages are in street language, non-denominational, and usually recorded before a live audience."
