With 50 years of experience, we "get" that things are always changing! That's why we've dedicated a section of our website to provide the very latest information about the speakers and ministries we serve--and about us, too. Come take a look at "what's new"--or use the sidebar options to take a deeper look at areas of particular interest.

Joni and Friends®— Glad tidings to you!

Joni group shotWe rang the sweet silver bells Wednesday as Joni and her team joined us at Ambassador for a day of yuletide jolly, merry recording, lunching and Christmas caroling!

It's always such a joy when Joni and Ken come to visit and this time was no exception. You may be dreaming of a white Christmas, but around here, we're shouting out with glee when Joni is able to come and deck our halls with her amazing spirit, beautiful voice and fast friendship.

Through the years, we all will be together, if the Lord allows...

December Babies

Birthday Gift Life Issues®I've always felt bad for the December babies, myself included.  Why?  Because our birthday presents and Christmas presents are often combined into one.  I feel especially awful for the people who share the exact birthday with Jesus for this reason!  This, of course, is a trivial thing to be sad about.  In fact, I am more joyful for the birth of Christ than anything else.  His life is the reason we are all here today.

It's my opinion that birthdays are a special time not only for the one celebrating the birthday, but also their friends and family ...

Elizabeth George's Holiday Survival Kit - Part 3

I've already received a Christmas gift - a timely gift of encouragement as Evelyn and I took a short trip up the road to hear Elizabeth George at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills.  She recently spoke to a full crowd of 1,800 women at their annual Christmas outreach.  Elizabeth's evangelistic message focused on Mary and the birth of Jesus, this indescribable gift!

It was a wonderful evening and it's our hope that you'll share Elizabeth's gift for your listeners this Christmas-her latest radio special, "A Holiday Survival Kit . . . for A Woman After God's Own Heart ...

Katie Burke

Ever since I had the opportunity to help deliver shoe boxes to kids in Romania a few years ago, filling up Operation Christmas Child boxes is that much more special.  ~Katie Burke


Peggy Campbell

I love the lyrics of Christmas-nothing like James Taylor sweetly singing "Who sends this song upon the air, to ease the soul that's aching?  To still the cry of deep despair and heal the heart that's breaking."  Or, BeBe ...

The Lion Roars Again

AlsanThey were the favorite novels of my childhood by far.  I think I read them at least 3 times each … and if you forced me to pick a favorite … I would pick The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  Maybe it’s because so much of the story takes place at sea, and I spent long summers as a child on my father’s ship or maybe it was because secretly I wanted to marry Ramundu's daughter (this was long before I met the fetching Amy Chamberlain, now Jacobsen).


I’m excited not just for the premier of the movie ...
