Ode to Billy Joe by Bobby Gentry not withstanding, June 3 is a special day for this ministry. It’s a double anniversary!
It is the 32nd anniversary of this ministry, as we started the nation-wide broadcast on June 3, 1985, as People to People.
For the next 24 years we fielded countless thousands of phone calls from people in many and diverse walks of life who had the same questions and concerns we hear on the program today.
The second part of our double anniversary is number four. It was June 3, 2013, when People to People gave way to a rebranding of the ministry as Basic Gospel.
For me, personally, it was the most difficult transition of my entire lifetime. Imagine, if you will, for 28 years saying the name People to People and giving the same phone number multiple times per program. Then, from one day to the next, having to transition to a new program name and a new call-in number.
But the new name and phone number slowly began to take hold and the same message we proclaimed from the beginning — 32 years ago — continues to bear fruit today. And what a privilege and honor we have been given … to proclaim the fulness of His great love in JESUS CHRIST.
