Meet the Goforth Media Staff


Wilbur Goforth
President / GM

The Goforth Media Christian radio stations have become such a permanent fixture along the upper Gulf Coast, it may be easy to assume the radio ministry will continue indefinitely. But the truth is that God will keep this station on-the air and the only thing that can put an end to the outreach is indifference from Godís people. Our Lord has given us a reminder with music and word of his presence in our lives each day. But if we choose to neglect his gift, He will not force it on us. Letís make sure Power 88 never leaves the airwaves because we fail to take care of it. You can support Christian Radio by Writing PO Box 1328, Mobile, AL 36633.



Robert Barber
Manager/VP

It is an awesome privilege to see and hear the results of Christian Radio in our community. Through letters and e-mails we receive personal testimonies everyday from individuals whose lives have been dramatically changed or touched in some way by hearing Godís word on one of our three stations.
Whether a person prefers great Biblical Teaching, good Praise & Worship music, or the latest in Contemporary Christian Music, we have a station for them.
I consider it a blessing to be part of such a ministry that reaches so many people with the word of God through word and song everyday.



Charlie Smith
Marketing Director

I am in my 15th year with Goforth Media (G/M). Prior to coming here in 1993 my 26 years in sales prepared me for the work I feel God called me to do. We have seen some changes in the staff as some come and then move on to other positions but every person that has worked at G/M has really been called to their position. Working with this staff and helping in marketing and underwriting on our 3 stations is a joy. I work to promote concerts and seek out funds for daily operation through advertising on both AM station and the Underwriting program on POWER 88. Doing something you love is the greatest joy you can have. My daily routine involves working with church pastorís, and secretaries, promoters of Christian concerts and Christian business owners. The pleasure is in knowing you have done something to keep God message on the air. There is a verse I learned years ago; II Corinthians 5:20 (NIV). It says "We are ambassadors for Christ, and God is using us to speak to you." Are you blessed by the message and music you hear on any of the Goforth Media station write us a letter or e-mail and tell us. We love to hear from our listeners. Charlie

Richard Payne
Morning Drive DJ

It's wonderful to be back in the morning show chair at Power88 and sharing life with our listeners. I am looking forward to being blessed and hopefully being a blessing to some who listen. It makes my mornings a time of ministry and sets my day on the right path. Doing life together is what Christ had in mind for us when he commanded us to go make disciples. Rise-N-Shine!



Robert Lutz
Announcer

What a joy it is to be a part of the Goforth Media Team. God used Goforth Media from 1988 to 1991 to help prepare me for ministry. I was an announcer for WBHY AM while studying electrical engineering at the University of South Alabama. God later called me into the ministry. My wife and I moved to Fort Worth, TX so I could attend seminary at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Since seminary I have been blessed to pastor in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and in the mountains of Tennessee before returning to the Mobile Bay area. God has given me the privilege of being the pastor at Shiloh Baptist Church in Saraland. In 2009, I finally completed writing a basic discipleship book entitled, Practical Transformation. Beyond my work in ministry, God has blessed me with an incredible wife, Belinda to whom I have been married 13 years. We now have four kids Ė Braden (7 years old), Denae (6 years), Andrew (4 years) and Casey, who was born July 9, 2010. Thank you for your interest and allowing me to be a part of your Fridays on Power 88.



Todd Seeley
Morning Drive DJ

Without reservation Todd believes music is a gift from God. His passion as a DJ is to engage the community and inspire a culture through Christian music. He and his wife have served in ministry together for over 20 years on the West Coast, East Coast and now the Gulf Coast. In 2010 Todd answered a call from Magnolia Springs Wesleyan Church to serve as Senior Pastor. He and his wife live in Fairhope with their two teenage sons.



Lisa Mitchell
Announcer

My family and I moved to the Gulf Coast after enjoying family vacations in Orange Beach for several years. God has used Goforth Media to bless my life in many ways since moving here. Now I am truly honored to have the opportunity to give back. My prayer each day is that God will use me through the job I do here at Goforth Media to reach out to others and bless their lives through the music and programs that we air. In Christ



Ralph Mitchell
Production for all Goforth Media Stations

I often tell friends that being involved with Power 88 is such a blessing in my life. I am so fortunate to be a part of this station.
My family and I moved to Alabama Ė we thought to be close to the Gulf. But Godís reasons for bringing us here were much deeper. Itís clear now that He had plans for us to be here long before we did. If this station is a blessing to you, please prayerfully consider a donation to Goforth Media.



Jane Goforth
Board of Directors/Sec.

These radio stations are run by a group of ordinary men and women under God's leadership. Everyday we get letters, Email and phone calls from our listeners telling how God is using our labor to draw them to Him.



Annie Smith
Public Service Director

I started working at Goforth Media, Inc as a volunteer before I became a member of the staff. I enjoyed coming to help mail the newsletter and got more involved in the ministry of the station. There was a need for someone to answer the telephone in the afternoons, since I was going to be retiring from BellSouth the Holy Spirit impressed me to do this.

Since coming on staff I enjoy helping with other chores that need to be done around the station. I have helped with concerts by getting the volunteers to help. What ever the Lord has for me to do each day, I enjoy seeing what is being done to minister to the community through this ministry.



Brad  Arnold
Engineer

It is a priviledge to serve as Chief Engineer for Power88. As a Christian it is great to seek opportunities to participate in the speading of the Gospel. All the folks here at Goforth Media are commited to serve Christ and it is a great joy to be a part of this effort. God blesses this work in many ways and I look forward to the future here.



Kevin Thomson
AM Announcer

After 17-years in secular radio, I have been blessed with the opportunity to change lives along the Gulf Coast through the airwaves of Goforth Media's radio ministry. Broadcasting what God is doing and has done and what He will do with the teachings of WBHY-AM 840 and with the classic Southern Gospel Music on WLPR-AM 960, has made my life a lot more enjoyable and less stressful!

The staff of Goforth Media, my co-workers, are a group of compassionate, faith-filled people, making this work and even the drive from Mobile to our new studios in Spanish Fort a lot more enjoyable.

Thank-you for listening! Thank-you for contributing and remember, "It's easier to build a child than to repair an adult!"



Jeanne Anderson
CPA

I've had the joy and privilege of providing tax and accounting services to Goforth Media for several years. Working with their knowledgeable personnel has been a pleasure. The Mobile and surrounding areas are truly blessed to have outstanding Christian radio provided under the Goforth Media umbrella. I pray God's continued blessings on the organization in its mission to reach the Gulf Coast with the Gospel message.



Jean Williams
Bookkeeper / Announcer

My first real introduction to Christian radio, except for listening to ďSouthern GospelĒ music sometimes, was as a bookkeeper for Mr. Goforth at another radio station. When he left that station and purchased WBHY-AM 840, I found out that he needed a bookkeeper, so I applied for the job and was hiredÖthat was in May of 1986.

It has been a rewarding and exciting experience through the years as I have seen Godís hand in everything that has been accomplished at Goforth Media. God has proved sooo faithful in helping us to be able to do things that was needed to provide Christian programs and music to our listeners. My prayer is that Goforth Media, Inc will continue to grow according to Godís will and plan so that many more souls can be reached with the Gospel Message.
