“I’ve enjoyed the support of our staff and our board, and especially our listening family all these years. You’ve been so kind to me,” he shared. “And to our faithful donors and prayer partners, thank you for being used of God…. And our partner stations and station managers who have chosen to air Back to the Bible – some for more than 50 years – I want to say thank you to you too.”

Opportunities for listeners to directly interact with Dr. Kroll will continue through various speaking engagements, as well as through his continued tours to Israel, directly facilitated by Maranatha Tours.

“We thank God for how He has used Dr. Kroll over the past 22 years to reach millions with the truths of Scripture,” expressed the ministry in its website.  “As we move forward, the radio broadcast will remain a core component of the Back to the Bible ministry.”
