Joy Christian Radio launched with a single radio station that was leased in North Mississippi. After a couple of attempts at ownership that didn’t work out, Joy finally acquired its first radio station that was not leased in Centre, Alabama. Joy Christian Radio operated AM-1560 there for 11 years. Unlike other radio stations across the country, Joy Christian Radio has never been a business; rather it is a ministry and operates much the same as any church from an operational standpoint. God has always blessed our sincere and passionate pledge to put ministry first. He has always met our financial needs. From the many people whom God has led to support us both prayerfully and financially to the “flipping” of “dead” radio stations, Joy Christian Radio has grown into the debt-free operations that it enjoys today.
