“And congratulations to you, Harold, as you take on your new role as President Emeritus of the ministry you and Darlene built over the past five decades,” he added, referring to Dr. Sala’s wife. “I rejoice with you in this thriving ministry that God is using to bring souls into His Kingdom and to build up the Body of Christ.”

For more than five decades, Guidelines has communicated the message of Jesus Christ in such a manner that men and women come to faith in the Lord and believers are discipled and strengthened.

Described as “the shortest five-minute in Christian radio,” the Guidelines Commentary is heard in 49 states and in 112 countries, in 11 languages.

As Guidelines’ CEO, Craddick expanded the ministry’s international broadcasts and online presence over the past two years. She also developed its ministry to women and spearheaded the Guidelines Legacy Project, which exists to establish community-based radio stations and equip partners on the ground to provide Bible-based, people-oriented programming in completely unserved areas.
