Issues of Life Radio

About Issues of Life Radio

The Issues of Life Radio Show first aired in August, 2012 on WTGF radio, in the Pensacola, Florida market.  It was established with a vision of providing an entertaining, interesting format to reach the masses with truth of God’s Word.  Listenership has grown steadily since inception, both internationally and locally.  The direct, forthright manner of the show attracts both positive and negative callers.  The Biblical content provides solutions to life’s most pressing issues, and spiritual help to the honest soul seeking a remedy.
