This teaching and devotional ministry was conceived out of a radio ministry by Pastor Matthew Elroy and his wife Jennifer, in Fairbanks Alaska. The ministry began by Pastor Matt sharing from the word each morning on Hope 105.9FM and grew to include a printed and email version of those Bible teachings.
In 2016, the ministry acqiured a Canon ImagePress digital press and began publishing booklets. These booklets are sent free of charge to individuals and churches that request.
This ministry is not supported by an church or ministry organization; neither does the ministry have any employees. Our staff is completely volunteer (including Matt and Jenn). Donations from listeners and friends are used to produce, air and print booklets. Please consider supporting the ministry if you benefit from it.
There are currently 9 volunteers that serve as part of this ministry. The daily tasks of producing the program are many, including: writing the devotionals, proofreading, scripting, editing, preparing audio, mastering audio, daily posts on this site and social media, giving, and coordinating with various radio stations around the country (plus others). PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR VOLUNTEERS AND THEIR MINISTRY!
Doctrinally, you will find the teaching conservative. Pastor Matt is a pastor in fellowship with the Calvary Chapel Association. A detailed doctrinal background can be found on their page which Matt & Jenn would agree with. The statement can be found HERE.
