Family Radio seems to be out of control. They have sold WFSI Annapolis, and sold WKDN Camden. They are in the red and no pastors or churches support them anymore. Stay away, it seems they are no longer a Christian ministry.

Family Radio should be avoided. They collect monies from the public with the stated purpose of their assets being "dedicated to a religious use," per their Articles of Incorporation. But then they sell the asset to a non-Christian, secular organization. A number of the Regional managers quit the corporation in 2011. The Board of Directors cannot be trusted. They simply rubber stamp every wish of Harold Camping. But now the latest twist is that Media Venture Partners is a essentially acting as an under the table board member and determining company policy. Family Radio cannot be trusted and your money is wasted.

I have been a Family Radio listener since 1987. I have known no ministry to have such an insatiable desire to serve God in the most faithful way possible than Family Radio. Despite the failed prediction of the rapture, the end of the world, and the ensuing fallout, Family Radio continues to serve God with the same fervor it has since February 4, 1959. Family Radio has been operating as a non-profit, non-commercial conservative Christian ministry with the singular goal of obeying God's command to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). Never hesitate to give to the ministry of Family Radio, and give liberally. Your gift will go toward getting the Gospel to the many, many people who still have not heard the Lord's precious word of grace. And to God be the Glory, forever and ever. --MEO
