 We were founded in 1982 by Steve and Sally Buchanan and a group of believers who shared their vision for Christian radio.  It was the first all Christian radio station in the area.  

WPRZ first aired on a 1,000 watt AM station that was given to Praise Communications, Inc.  Though it faced the threat of cancellation several times, it has been kept alive by God’s will and the perseverance of Steve and Sally Buchanan and their dedicated staff and volunteers.

Now, almost 40 years later, what began as a pioneering small AM station, now streams to the world over the internet at wprz.org and on WPRZ 88.1 FM.  The mission to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost, to nurture and help believers grow in their relationship with God and to strengthen the local church continues as we look forward to growing the reach of WPRZ.

Our slogan is Glorifying God and Growing Believers.  We do this by airing the best Bible teaching programs,  and providing unique music including Contemporary Christian and Classic Gold Contemporary music weekday mornings, Christian Country music in the afternoons, and Gospel Bluegrass music on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.  Learn more about our music and when it airs by visiting wprz.org/broadcast-schedule.


You can be a part of this ministry by making a donation to help cover operating expenses.   No matter how big or small, you will make a difference and help us continue our mission.

Thank you for whatever you can give and we pray God will bless you for your cheerful giving.
