Informed Radio’s Interview with Hormoz Shariat of Iran Alive Ministries

Informed Radio’s Interview with Hormoz Shariat of Iran Alive Ministries

December 21, 2018

Many of us may believe that Christmas in Iran is pretty much non-existent or even not tolerated but in this interview with Dr. Hormoz Shariat, the Founder and President of Iran Alive, we will find out the truth of the celebrations there that you never hear about and the powerful work that God is doing each and everyday. Irna Alive reaches millions everyday in the Middle East through satellite television and the testimonies are coming in by the thousands.

We believe that this is more than a lofty goal, conjured up by men striving to validate a ministry’s call.  It is a promise from the Lord, that He WILL establish His throne in Elam (present day Iran).

According to the latest release of the Operation World Manual, Iran has the fastest growing Evangelical population in the entire world!  This is not because it has grown from ten people to hundreds of people, but because it has exploded from hundreds of Persians, to hundreds of thousands of Persians and continues to grow exponentially. At a 19.6% growth rate, the Evangelical population is doubling every four years!

Amazingly, Afghanistan is number two on the list, while Tajikistan ranks 10th, making three of the top ten fastest growing Evangelical populations on the planet Farsi-speaking countries reached by our satellite broadcast.

Informed Radio Interview with Gary Wilkerson of World Challenge

Informed Radio Interview with Gary Wilkerson of World Challenge

December 17, 2018


As Americans embrace the season of giving, World Challenge invites them to remember those in need. Nearly half of the world’s population—more than 3 billion people—are living in extreme poverty; 805 million people do not have enough food to eat, and more than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water.


World Challenge leads the way in providing long-term sustainable solutions unique to each community. Each community has different obstacles to overcome, and World Challenge works with local leaders to create lasting change. Led by Gary Wilkerson, son of the late Rev. David Wilkerson, it offers health and hygiene programs, clean water and sanitation, agricultural efficiency, micro-business support, and spiritual training.


Sofia was living in a tiny hut with her husband and 12 children. Every day she struggled to put food on the table. One day, a World Challenge leader taught Sofia how to farm her land more effectively through its Community Health Evangelist program. After several years, their lives changed dramatically. Sofia’s family has now harvested corn fields, peanut fields, citrus and banana groves, and put her children through school due to income from cash crops. Sofia now serves as a Community Health Evangelist to share the same message of hope that transformed her family’s life.


Today, World Challenge is active in 13 countries and has supported 302 communities since it began, bringing hope to hundreds of thousands of people like Sofia living in extreme poverty worldwide. In addition to poverty relief efforts, World Challenge provides devotionals, newsletters, and hosts worldwide conferences to help people experience life more fully.

Gary Wilkerson is the President of World Challenge, an international mission organization that was founded by his father, David Wilkerson. He is also the Founding Pastor of The Springs Church, which he launched in 2009 with a handful of people. He has traveled nationally and internationally at conferences and conducted mission ventures such as church planting, starting orphanages, clinics, feeding programs among the poorest of the poor and the most unreached people of the earth

Informed Radio’s Interview with Dr. Duke Pesta of the “Dr. Duke Show”

December 8, 2018

A challenging interview as we learn and speak with Dr. Duke Pesta of the "Dr. Duke Show" Challenged as we hear the disturbing facts of our public school system and how we have handed over all our rights to the federal government to literally raise and teach our children, those things that should be taught in the home by mothers and fathers.

From Pre-K through graduate school, Dr. Duke's one-of-a-kind podcast will keep you informed about the highly politicized world of modern education, alerting you to the dangers facing our republic from generations of undereducated, miseducated, and ideologically coerced students.

Dr. Pesta is an engaging and animated speaker, whose experiences as an educational reformer, university professor, high school teacher, and the administrator of an online classical school uniquely qualify him to address the current state of education in our country.

Informed Radio’s Interview with Author/ Joe Battaglia Re: “Unfriended”

Informed Radio’s Interview with Author/ Joe Battaglia Re: “Unfriended”

October 18, 2018

All of you know I enjoy a great conversation with people, especially authors who convey a timely message..Well. this is one of those conversations, I completely enjoyed having and INFORMING you the listener about another great book, that you need, honestly need.

The insight and wisdom found wihtin the pages of this book are so timely to our culture today and where we all stand within the frame work of social media.

We live in a hyperconnected world, and yet we’re more disconnected than ever. We spend more time scrolling through Instagram than we do talking with our families. We’ve never had more “friends”, but we have no one to meet for coffee.

Joe Battaglia understands that we are wired to have community, and that smartphones cannot meet our needs for love, acceptance, touch, and connection. In Unfriended, Battaglia uses research, personal insight, and biblical truths to help you:

- leave behind the anonymity of the Internet and get face-to-face with people.
- go beyond the “like” button and establish meaningful relationships.
- get out from behind your screen and enjoy God’s creation.
- avoid toxic social media debates and become a vehicle of change.

Unfriended will help you shake off your digital fatigue and get back to real-life, real-world relationships with real people.

Additional guest chapters by Iris C. O’Brien, Michael Guillen, Donna Rice Hughes, and Delilah.

Informed Radio’s Interview with Author Raymond Harris Re: “Business By Design”

Informed Radio’s Interview with Author Raymond Harris Re: “Business By Design”

October 18, 2018

You don’t need to quit your day job to serve God.

Do you find it difficult to work with joy? Do you have a hard time with coworkers? Is your identity wrapped up in your job?

Many Christian leaders struggle to bridge the gap between the sacred and the secular—particularly at work. Raymond Harris addressed this dilemma and found true success as one of the most prolific American architects.

Business by Design draws upon biblical principles and life experiences to help you:

  • Avoid the swirl of busyness and develop an eternity-driven mind-set.

  • Exceed worldly standards and demonstrate generosity, compassion, forgiveness, and diligence.

  • Look beyond your own needs and use profits to promote God’s kingdom.

  • Let go of feeling you’re not doing enough for God and recognize your service to Him at work.

The teachings and example of Jesus can transform your professional life and make you more effective in the workplace. Join your faith and work, and discover your ultimate purpose.

Informed Radio’s Interview with Debbie Wuthnow Exec. Dir. at iVoterGuide.com

Informed Radio’s Interview with Debbie Wuthnow Exec. Dir. at iVoterGuide.com

October 18, 2018

A wonderful interview with Debbie Wuthnow, the Executive Director of iVoterGuide.com

While it’s easy for most people to follow along with the top stories and the names in the headlines, it can be a daunting task to keep track of which Senate and House seats, Governor’s races, and state legislative positions are up for grabs.

iVoterGuide keeps track of these critically important races across the U.S. at many levels. With less than 30 days until the November 2018 general election — and with early voting having begun in 25 states — it is no exaggeration for us to say that this election will make or break the future for our families and freedoms. 

Here’s what’s at stake:

1) The party of the President almost always loses seats in the midterm election.  In four out of five recent midterm elections, the opposing party made huge gains.  In 2018, with the more conservative party having control of the White House and both houses of Congress, the importance of conservative turnout can almost not be overstated.  People of faith need to turn out in record numbers.  So much hangs in the balance.  We all must do our part – and then we must trust God with the rest.

2) If the Left wrests control over the U.S. House of Representatives, they will almost certainly attempt to make good on threats of impeaching the President — raising the stakes for retaining the balance of power in the House.

3) If the liberals gain control of the Senate, we will loose the momentum we’ve made in judicial appointments — momentum that could one day protect religious liberty in our public schools and reverse Roe v. Wade. We all know that at least one U.S. Supreme Court seat is at stake, but did you know that the balance of power throughout the circuit courts also rides on the outcome of Election 2018?  Take a look at the research that  shows what the Courts will look like in 2024 if the Left takes control vs. what it will look like if the Right keeps control of appointments and confirmations.

4) Many of the state legislators elected in 2018 will be governing during the 2020 census and redistricting process.  More than 80% of elections are decided in the primaries because of gerrymandering, and the party in control of the state legislatures at that time will affect votes more than a decade to come.

So, how can you impact the outcome of the election?

* Fully participate in and be a good steward of our right to vote.  Knowledge is power, and learning who and what is on your ballot is incumbent upon you as a citizen.

Share the truth, in love, with other believers.  iVoterGuide provides an easy-to-share platform for you to help other God-fearing Americans know where the candidates stand on the issues important to people of faith.

Be salt and light to those who don’t have the same foundations as you do but who are willing to listen and engage.  iVoterGuide works hard every day to provide data so you can share the facts with confidence and in a way that convinces — rather than intimates or frightens — voters of many backgrounds, beliefs, and ways of life.

iVoterGuide doesn’t tell anyone who to vote for.  We just present the facts so people can compare the candidates side-by-side, based upon what they do — not just what they say they’ll do.   We’re looking for candidates who won’t just say what they’ll do, but will go out there and do what they say!  We call it “walking-the-talk,” and it’s the basis for our only annual fundraising event, the Walk-the-Talk Awards.

The event takes places in Dallas, Texas on October 23, and if any of you are in the area, we’d love for you to join us as we honor some Texas legislators who not only campaigned as conservatives, but went on to govern on those same principles.

Even if you’re not close geographically, you can be a part of this immense effort by contributing or sponsoring a table.  We are covering 1,000 races in all 50 states, and all of our work is made possible by your giving and God’s faithfulness. 
As the voices on each side of our national debate dominate the headlines, we hope you will take this opportunity to see not only what’s at stake but also what’s possible when the people of God pray, share, and turn out to vote.

Informed Radio’s Interview with Pastor/Author Mark Driscoll Re: Spirit Filled Jesus”

Informed Radio’s Interview with Pastor/Author Mark Driscoll Re: Spirit Filled Jesus”

October 16, 2018


Pastor Mark Driscoll shares with us the depth that his latest book "Spirit Filled Jesus can bring into our lives, based on scripture and God's love letter to all of and the magnificient road map to an over coming life, that bears fruit and gifts.

When Jesus needed help, He went to the Helper. Where do you go? If Jesus needed help, we all do. Spirit-Filled Jesus explores the role of the Holy Spirit in and through the life of Jesus, revealing aspects of His life that have not been examined before and helping you see how this applies to you. Everyone knows the Holy Spirit as the Helper but may not realize He helped Jesus. Jesus resisted temptation, endured suffering, and overcame Satan, all by the power of the Spirit. You can do the same. The Spirit that empowered Jesus also lives in you! God wants us not only to admire the life of Jesus and reflect it in our lives but also to experience the same source of life-giving power that Jesus did.

Informed Radio’s Interview with author Stasi Eldredge about her latest book “Defiant Joy”

Informed Radio’s Interview with author Stasi Eldredge about her latest book “Defiant Joy”

October 16, 2018

 Wonderful interview with Stasi Eldredge about her latest book, "Defiant Joy" 

“The newsfeed on any given day is heartbreaking,” says Eldredge. “People are not only losing hope, they are losing heart. And we need our hearts back. We need true hope. It is possible in the middle of the sorrows of life to experience a life changing, reality based joy that is tethered to the hope we have in Christ!”


Written in one of the toughest years of her life, Eldredge explores how to embrace the mystery that suffering and joy can coexist. From the loss of loved ones and physical pain, to depression and struggles with food, Eldredge provides a blueprint to choose love over fear and fully understand that, because of God, we can know a joy that is defiant in the face of this broken world.


“Defiant Joy is a clarion call to press into the heart of God in new and life-giving ways,” continues Eldredge. “In the age we are living in, possessing joy can feel almost impossible. Yet, we are called to have joy, and if we are called to it, then it is possible. This book is an invitation to know a joy – a joy fully grounded in hope – that strengthens us and sustains us in the middle of our everyday lives and in the middle of the extremely painful seasons as well.”

Informed Radio’s Interview with President and CEO of Open Doors USA Re: “The Korea Atrocities”

Informed Radio’s Interview with President and CEO of Open Doors USA Re: “The Korea Atrocities”

October 12, 2018

My friends, this is one you truly want to listen to and share with all that you can. Our brothers and sisters in North Korea are in critical condition and need our support and prayers.

Firsthand Accounts Tell of Atrocities in North Korea

Open Doors USA Launches Resource Site for Media

 Under the totalitarian Kim regime in North Korea, details about day-to-day living there are often scarce. Open Doors USA recently launched a new online resource for media detailing the human rights violations and oppression of the regime. The website provides firsthand accounts, photos, videos, stats and interview opportunities. The firsthand accounts detail living through prison camps, escaping the country, starvation, beatings and human trafficking.


Open Doors USA estimates there are tens of thousands of Christians in camps, restricted villages or otherwise imprisoned, many of whom are suffering under unthinkable conditions. 


In addition, the organization is calling attention to North Korea in early November. On the third at 5 p.m. PT, David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors USA, is hosting a webinar to provide the latest persecution updates. He will be joined by South Korean Pastor Min-soo, who will provide firsthand accounts on North Korea. The efforts are part of the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church on Nov. 4. Individuals and churches are encouraged to participate and can access free, downloadable resources from the Open Doors website. Resources include: 

  • Prayer guide
  • Videos
  • Sermon outline
  • Bulletin insert
  • Poster
  • Infographic
  • Online prayer wall 

According to Curry, the International Day of Prayer is an important reminder for Americans living in Western countries. 


"The situation in North Korea is dire. We must support North Koreans with our prayers because many have said our prayers can be felt and provide strength," said Curry. "We must never forget those who are facing the unimaginable simply because of where they live."


Open Doors USA is asking for prayers for:  

  • Protection, strength and endurance for North Korea Christians who face persecution from state authorities and their non-Christian families, friends and neighbors; 
  • North Korean President Kim Jong Un and his regime to come to know the one true God and open his country to the Gospel for healing and restoration;
  • God to move in Kim Jong Un to release the estimated 50,000 Christians who are unjustly held in detention centers and prison camps throughout the country;
  • The underground church to grow in boldness and be ready for widespread evangelism efforts when the opportunity arises; and
  • Kim Jong Un to allow for the creation of new churches where North Koreans can freely worship.

Informed Radio’s Interview with Dede Laugesen of  Saved The Persecuted Christians Coalition

Informed Radio’s Interview with Dede Laugesen of Saved The Persecuted Christians Coalition

October 10, 2018


“SAVE US” Movement Works to End the World’s Horrific Persecution Problem


“Why is the world silent while Christians are being slaughtered? The Jewish people understand all too well what can happen when the world is silent.” – Ronald S. Lauder, President, World Jewish Congress


Too few Americans know that 215 million Christians in a record number of countries around the world are subjected to brutal human rights abuses and even genocidal violence by authoritarian regimes and radical groups.


Western Media, countless elected officials, and even some faith leaders have been silent too long to this Anti-Christian plague of oppression and death sweeping the globe .


These crimes against humanity have been allowed to fester and proliferate.


Modern, Global Church Persecution Statistics

  • By 2013, more than 450,000 Syrian Christians had fled their homes during two years of war and persecution (NY Times).
  • 255 Christians are killed for their faith every month (Open Doors).
  • 214 churches and Christian properties are destroyed every month (Open Doors).
  • 772 forms of violence (beatings, kidnappings, rape, arrest, etc.) are committed against Christians every month (Open Doors).

Current data and anecdotal information from reputable sources, including the United States Government  show this may be the most dangerous time in history to be a Christian.


Save the Persecuted Christians Coalition is a vast and growing group of faith leaders and community influencers determined to raise awareness of the plight of the world’s Christians (Wall Street Journal).


We seek not only to alleviate the suffering, but to discourage and stop those responsible for it by igniting a movement to hold the persecutors accountable and create real cost for their crimes.


Join the “SAVE US” Movement at savethepersecutedchristians.org.


The 10 countries where Christians face the most extreme persecution are, in order:

  1. North Korea
  2. Somalia
  3. Afghanistan
  4. Pakistan Sudan
  5.  Syria
  6.  Iraq
  7.  Iran
  8.  Yemen
  9. 10. Eritrea

With such staggering statistics available, and the knowledge that most of these crimes are not covered in the media, the STPC Coalition developed a special news aggregatorwww.ChristianPersecutionNews.com—to capture current instances of persecution that do make the news and to provide those concerned an easy way to share these heartbreaking stories with others.


One of the ways Americans can render support is by encouraging their pastors and faith leaders to visit www.SaveThePersecutedChristians.org and to order a free banner to display in front of their houses of worship. These simple banners feature a graphic “SaveUs” plea with a cross and the coalition’s website where Americans can learn about the global persecution of Christians and find out more about what they can do to help.

Informed Radios Interview with Lucas Ramirez Author of “Designed For More”YR

Informed Radios Interview with Lucas Ramirez Author of “Designed For More”YR

August 20, 2018

DESIGNED FOR MORE calls every Christian to consider how, through collective movement, they can bring about Christ's daring vision for unity in the Church to impact the world like never before.
Our world is divided and fragmented.
Even among followers of Christ, God's great story of reconciliation has been crippled because the messengers of that story are unreconciled.
But God designed us for so much more. Thankfully, He has hidden incredible lessons in nature to help solve complex human problems.
DESIGNED FOR MORE draws groundbreaking implications for how to achieve unity and collective movement through new research on a jaw-dropping phenomenon of flocking starlings known as a murmuration. This marvel is one of nature's most spectacular sights: Imagine hundreds of thousands of birds in motion, caressing the sky like a brush on canvas. It is a beautiful madness that is completely ordered.

Join authors Lucas Ramirez and Mike DeVito as they unveil the power of the murmuration principles in order to inspire unity in individuals and the Church as a whole.
Birds first taught us to fly, and now they will teach us to unify!

Interview with Col. Patrick Kanewske of the Ark Encounter

Interview with Col. Patrick Kanewske of the Ark Encounter

July 9, 2018

In January 2016, Patrick was hired by Answers in Genesis to help build the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky.  Shortly after the Ark opened in July 2016, he became its Director, and currently serves as the Director of Ministry and Media Relations for AiG.  

Two years ago this week, the Ark Encounter opened its doors and quickly became a major international tourist destination. Answers in Genesis (AiG), operators of the Ark Encounter, continues to engage in major expansions this year and through 2019, with other significant additions planned beyond 2019. Meanwhile, new hotels and other tourism-related businesses have launched or are under construction throughout Northern Kentucky, and their owners cite excellent attendance at the life-size Noah's Ark as a main reason.


As this world-class Christian themed attraction wraps up its second year tomorrow, tourism officials are testifying to the ark's remarkable economic impact on the region. In addition, the state's treasury is benefiting, and Kentucky is also seeing the creation of thousands of ark-related jobs. As the Noah's Ark replica sails into its third year of operation, additions and projects are underway at the theme parArk_labeled_2years(1).jpgk that will have fans returning again and again as the Ark Encounter theme park expands.


Ken Ham, the CEO of Answers in Genesis, Ark Encounter, and the ark's sister attraction the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky (which has doubled in attendance since the Ark opened), declares, "We are so blessed to have seen over one million guests visit the Ark Encounter in our second year. Almost all attractions see a drop in attendance after the initial excitement of the opening year wears off, but we have experienced another remarkable year. Numbers are even higher than our excellent first year, partly because so many motor coach tours, a 20% increase, are arriving daily."

Missions Radio Interview with Victor Torres and the upcoming movie “Victor”  Must Hear

Missions Radio Interview with Victor Torres and the upcoming movie “Victor” Must Hear

March 24, 2017

A powerful interview with Pastor Victor Torres, as we discuss the upcoming movie about his life. We talk about his current ministry and life and his continued ministry to those who are broken and hurting.

In the early 1960s, Victor Torres and his family moved to Brooklyn, New York from their native Puerto Rico in search of a new life. The American dream quickly fades as they face a life of want in their adopted home. As a new recruit in a street gang, a teenage Victor embarks on a lucrative new drug-trafficking business in an attempt to help his struggling family. Victor is quickly enslaved by drug use, and his parents, Manuel and Lila, desperately search to find a way to help their son. A faith-based rehabilitation program is their last chance to rescue Victor.

The film VICTOR is an adaptation of Victor Torres’ autobiography entitled “Son of Evil Street”.  The film tells the story of Victor and his family as they learn to live in their new land.  Victor become a victim of gang life, and he soon finds himself enthroned by heroin and struggling with the faith that could save his life.
After collaborating on the award-winning documentary LIFE IN A BOX, Executive Producer Greg Wilkerson, (son of David Wilkerson, who is depicted in the film) and Director / Co-Writer Brandon Dickerson join forces to to tell this inspiring story.
