About

Joy Christian Radio is a nonprofit organization whose directive and calling is to spread the Hope of the Gospel to as many people as we can possibly reach around the world via the Internet and closer to home via our terrestrial stations.

Beginning with a vision written on paper by our founder, the Rev. Ed Smith on January 1, 2000 and presented to his family around the dining room table, Joy Christian Radio has grown to where we are today.  We own and operate five FM radio stations and three  more radio stations online.  Joy Christian Radio conducts other ministries outside the station as well.  Our annual Christmas Card ministry is a huge event, whereby volunteers from all over get together and prepare and distribute Christmas Cards to nursing homes and similar type organizations over the 12 Days of Christmas.  We also have and promote Bible Studies, Home School groups and many other things along the way as the Lord opens doors for us.

Joy Christian Radio has a missions heart and passion!  We support missions work with Wycliffe Bible Translators, Inspiracom (a radio mission along the Mexico / US Border) and Wantak Radio Light (a Papua New Guinea missions radio group); and several others   We partner with groups such as FEBC and Trans-World Radio in their efforts to spread the Gospel to the world.

Joy Christian Radio reaches into countries all over the world via the Internet.  We have heard from listeners from obscure places such as China and the Ukraine.  We have heard from listeners in the UK, South Africa, Germany, South America, Brazil, Belize and many more.  We have listeners and supporters in the Carolinas, Oklahoma, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia and Alabama as well as other states.
