Stories of Faith and Hope on Passages and Survivors

Sharing stories of God’s love for all people is Presbyterian Media Mission!

We are helping to change the world one story at a time through God’s love for people.

assages/Survivors are heard daily and weekly on 150 radio stations! Interviews and music are used as a “public service” for radio station listeners. These stories are being heard on our network of stations across North America and into 16 foreign countries. We are hearing from folks via the web who are downloading stories to their phones, Ipods and mp3 players for inspiration and sharing them with others! Some clergy and church leaders are re-telling these stories as inspirational moments. The Passages programs featured here are a handful of over 3,000 stories that Media Mission has produced in over 30 years of providing PASSAGES & Survivors to listeners as a gift from your Presbyterian, Mennonite, and United Methodist friends.
