The board members represent diverse denominations, backgrounds and professions to provide oversight, direction and accountability for the ministry.
Radio Program of the Year: Focus on the Family
Focus on the Family is a global Christian ministry that helps families thrive. They provide help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design, and for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles. They come alongside families with relevance and grace at each stage of their journey.
