Welcome to The Family Altar Program!
Our mission is to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel using the tool of broadcast evangelism.
The roots of our ministry are found under the revival tent with sawdust floors where the old-time preaching of the Gospel brought many to the altar call. Evangelist Lester Roloff recognized the potential of radio to proclaim the salvation message to as many people as possible. He established the Family Altar Program in 1944, and the Roloff Evangelistic Enterprises continues to minister with the heart of the founder to reach the lost with the message that Christ is the Answer!
The need for revival in America has never been greater. We are currently broadcasting the Gospel every day of the week on over 130 stations across America. 265 million Americans (93%) listen to the radio twelve or more hours weekly. Evangelism through the medium of radio is reaching more people more often than any other medium of information.
We are commanded to go “into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Our ministry is able to “preach the gospel in the regions beyond” in ways never before possible to previous generations! The message of the cross is penetrating countries currently closed to a missionary presence. Through our strategic partnerships we are reaching listening areas in 220 foreign countries (Mark 16:15; II Corinthians 10:16).
Our desire is to provide you resources on this website that will encourage and nourish you spiritually. We operate by faith depending upon the prayers and giving of God’s people to continue this ministry. As we are a 501(c)(3) ministry, your gifts are tax-deductible. We would rejoice to have you partner with us in the cause of souls!
