It all started in the early 1980's when a dedicated group of people had a vision for a listener supported Christian radio station in the Hudson Valley. The radio station's mission was to support and encourage people to know God, and to reach out to those who wanted to know him. Now as we near three decades later, The Sound of Life Radio Network has grown to covering much of eastern New York and parts of five other states, as well as our internet and digital media presence. God allows us to be a voice of encouragement and hope for REAL LIFE & REAL CHANGE thanks to dedication of that original group of people and all those who have contributed over the years and continue to.

Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:1-2)
