Frederick Launches Radio Program to Tell Gospel Stories

Story by Heather Quintana

Frederick’s senior pastor, Robert Quintana, is the speaker for Anchorpoints radio program.

Jesus taught life-changing principles by using stories that would fascinate and connect with His listeners. His approach has proven timeless, and it now serves as inspiration for the growing media ministry at the Chesapeake Conference’s Frederick (Md.) church.

One of the Frederick church’s first media initiatives is AnchorPoints, a radio program that airs Sunday mornings at 9 o’clock on WFMD AM 930. Funded by private donations, the program has been on the air for one year and has been praised for its creative attention-grabbers and use of themes that are popular in culture.

After the sales representative of WFMD he heard the first couple of programs, he told Rob Conway, AnchorPoints producer he thought “it was going to be another ho-hum ‘church’ program, but he was pleasantly surprised when he heard how well it was produced and how good the messages were.”

Because of the positive response to the radio program, Robert Quintana, the speaker for AnchorPoints and Frederick’s senior pastor, was asked to be a guest on another radio program, The Frederick Faith Debate. As a participant in several on-air debates, Quintana had the opportunity to share extensively about the seventh-day Sabbath.

“It’s humbling and exciting to see the response we are getting from listeners,” says Pastor Quintana. “We see God using this program to reach our community.”

The next phase in the church’s media ministry will focus on expanding podcasts, websites and social media, including Facebook and Twitter.

To hear AnchorPoints, listen online or download the podcast at or by searching for “AnchorPoints” on iTunes.

Rob Conway, who joined the Frederick (Md.) church’s staff in June as the director of Media Ministries, says, “When it really comes down to it, media ministry should just be another way to tell our stories.”
