  • Theodore, Katherine, Leah, Eric. These four young people listening to secular urban formatted radio stations in 4 major cities one summer were unexpectedly confronted with a startling message. The music and sexually explicit talk shows were interrupted by two-minute testimonies of young men and women whose lives had been transformed through faith in Jesus Christ! At the end of the testimony, listeners were invited to call a toll-free phone number to learn how they, too, could be “free from the weight of sin.” Counselors trained and supported by Need Him National Media Outreach, Inc. were available to answer calls 24/7. Theodore, Katherine, Leah and Eric were among those who called and prayed to receive Christ as Lord and Savior of their lives.

    While Free Indeed continues to be heard daily on over 3,100 radio stations, plans are being considered for future outreach opportunities on secular radio. The expense is considerable, but the rewards are eternal. There is no more powerful means of communicating the gospel than through a personal testimony—the account of what God has done in an individual’s life. Now the impact of an UNSHACKLED! testimony is available in a compelling, contemporary two-minute radio feature that is pleasing to the ear and convicting to the heart.

    Free Indeed is designed as a daily (M-F) feature and is available via FTP Download and Amb-Os satellite. To begin receiving Free Indeed, please complete and return the enclosed form. For more information, contact UNSHACKLED! Station Relations at 312-492-9410 or e-mail: unshackled@pgm.org.
