Forty years ago, a small town Mississippi preacher caused ripples in the polluted waters of Hollywood entertainment by challenging Christians to take action against corporations whose advertisements were paying for immoral television shows. For my dad, Rev. Donald Wildmon, there was no grand vision. It was a simple matter of living out his biblical convictions for the sake of his family and others.
But God turned the ripples into a wave, a movement that sustained a hope that American culture could be persuaded to return to the Christian principles and practices upon which the nation was founded and by which it thrived for over 200 years.
Today the grassroots organization founded on my parents’ kitchen table is a far-reaching ministry that has inspired millions of Christians to join their voices together on issues of ultimate consequence to our nation’s future – life, marriage and family, religious freedom, public policy, justice, and more.
Through the years, AFA has developed a broad range of resources, strategies, and media outlets aimed at promoting Christian values in all areas of our public life. Perhaps you are already a listener to our broadcast division called American Family Radio, where right now we are engaged in our SPRING SHARE-A-THON. AFR consists of 185 radio stations around the nation, owned and operated by AFA. There are actually three programming formats:
Here is national map of where our stations can be heard. You can always enjoy listening to AFR live 24/7 here or you can download our free app for your smartphone here. We have just added three new stations to our network: Lexington/Winchester, KY – 96.5 FM, Montgomery, AL – 92.7 FM, and Jacksonville, FL – 101.9 FM.
We receive feedback daily from listeners whose lives have been transformed by the gospel and programming that informs, uplifts, inspires, and equips Christians to faithfully fulfill their calling to be salt and light in our culture. In addition, our news team offers hourly news from across the country and around the world from a Christian perspective.
