The Word is a noncommercial, listener supported radio ministry of Minnesota Christian Broadcasters, Inc. (MCBI). MCBI owns and operates 104.3 The Pulse in The Brainerd Lakes area and 91.5 & 102.7 The Word in St. Cloud and Pequot Lakes.


     The Word’s Mission is to “serve Central Minnesota listeners by Evangelizing with the Gospel, Equipping for living the Christian faith and Encouraging through building relationships.”


“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Scripture reveals to us in Acts 20 that Jesus said these words but this may not be a verse that we think of at Christmas time. 

I am glad that Thanksgiving is just before the time we celebrate the birth of Christ because I believe it sets a good attitude for us as we enter a time of giving and receiving. We are so blessed and though that may be a relative statement we all have something to give whether it be prayers, time, resources, or finances. Someone has said, “An attitude of gratitude determines our altitude”. In other words being thankful and generous lifts us up. When we have a heart of thanksgiving we are more able to receive from God and give to others.

This past spring and summer we saw an amazing outpouring of giving to our ministry partner, Joni and Friends when we asked for help in collecting wheelchairs. Please take a moment and read Randy Kennedy’s report on what the results were for that promotion. As we wrap up another calendar year I want to encourage you to consider a year end gift to The Word and The Pulse. We in turn will donate 5% of those received gifts to Joni and Friends to help them end the year with a financial blessing.

Thanks for supporting 91.5 and 102.7 The Word and 104.3 The Pulse. We look forward to seeing what God has in store for us this next year and are so thankful that you are a part of this radio ministry.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas,

Ric McClary
