In God we trust.
A Word from Our General Manager
Welcome to the KVIP Radio Family of Stations, with its headquarters located in Redding, California! KVIP’s network programming is heard on 33 different signals throughout California, Oregon, and Arizona. This year we are celebrating 50 years of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ as a listener-supported Christian Radio Ministry!
The staff and board members would like to extend a special welcome to the listeners of our sister-station of 35 years, KGRV in Winston/Roseburg, Oregon. They are now hearing the same broadcast as heard on the other 32 signals of the KVIP Radio Network.
Recently, Steve Hafen, who was the General Manager of KVIP for 25 years, has gone to be home with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He was greatly appreciated and will be missed. After much prayer, the Board of Directors has hired Phil Morrow, General Manager of KGRV, to serve as the KVIP Network Operations Manager. Here is Phil to share a little about himself:
I grew up in Redding and started at KVIP back in 1984 as a radio operator for two years. Then I moved to Chico to get my degree in “Broadcast Communications” with an emphasis in radio management. I knew that the Lord was calling me into a life ministry of serving in Christian radio. After graduating, I took a position with our sister station, KGRV, in Roseburg, Oregon. As the General Manager of KGRV, I have been active in serving on the network’s leadership team and was blessed to know Steve Hafen. Together we have prayed for the ministries of Pacific Cascade Communications to nourish, encourage, and equip our listeners to a fulfilling life in Christ and to introduce the seeker to a saving knowledge of Jesus. My wife, Tracy, and I are looking forward to visiting the communities of the KVIP family of stations.
Monday, October 12th, is the first day of the Fall 2020 Share-a-thon and we are looking forward to another opportunity to visit with you and tell you about what God is doing through the ministry of KVIP. We are also looking forward to hearing from you of what God is doing in your life. Together we are sharing the Good News of Jesus!
As you can see, these past 50 years have seen a lot of expansion of the ministry of KVIP through the generous donations of its listeners. Below is this Share-a-thon’s memory verse:
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
