Potomac’s Radio Programs Impacts Station Owners, Community
Story by Potomac Conference Staff
Pastor Jose Esposito, Potomac Conference’s Hispanic Ministries director, records a radio show for Spanish-speaking listeners.
Geared for the Hispanic church community, Saturday’s 60-minute program, Ondas de Esperanza, starts with a biblical message. During the program, listeners can call the station and share their praise and prayer requests, announce church events and request rides to church services and activities. The program closes with story time for children. Acción Adventista, which can be heard live on ministeriovuelve.com, airs Monday through Friday. It’s a less interactive program filled with an inspirational message and music.
Since January 14, most people in the Potomac Conference territory, as well as parts of Pennsylvania and Chesapeake, have been able to tune to 1030 AM and 1380 AM to listen to the programs.
“We hope that listeners will feel compelled to go to one of our churches and become involved or attend an event,” says Jacqueline Sanchez, administrative assistant at the Adventist Center for Evangelism and Discipleship, the conference’s Hispanic Ministries center, which is located in Temple Hills, Md. “Our office number is announced so people can call us with questions, request a copy of the message or find a local church.”
Esposito says many Seventh-day Adventist members have been learning about the needs of the community and are assisting with transportation, among other needs. “This ministry is increasing awareness of the needs around us and motivating us to take action,” he says.
