News & Insights

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. In case you wonder what we think, we've dedicated a space for commentary (including guest posts). And take a look at who's been to Ambassador lately in our own version of the Greenroom!

The Best Celebration of Easter

It's been said that "everyone has a story." 

Even one of my favorite coffees has a story. Printed on the side of their coffee bean bag is The Tully's Story: "Some professionals need to approach their jobs slowly and with a great deal of care.  Like  tightrope walkers.  Or brain surgeons.  At Tully's, the same holds true for creating great coffee.  It takes a lot of time and patience, which is why we roast our coffee beans to gently coax out the complex flavors and aromas."

The "story" goes on but honestly, it's rather dull (even ...

National Volunteer Week

A couple of weeks ago, I heard a message from one of the people who inspire Joni Eareckson Tada.

As Joni says about Paige Benton Brown, she is a "deep thinker... she loves God and His Word . . . and never ceases to amaze me with her fresh insights into familiar biblical passages."

The message Paige shared is fresh in my mind as this week's "Joni and Friends®" programming marks National Volunteer Week.

As Paige recounted the story of the master, his three servants and the talents he entrusts to them, I heard the parable in a different light.  Yes, it ...

The More Things Change, the More They Remain the Same

While the quote, "The more things change, the more they remain the same," is understood to have a negative connotation, it's what hasn't changed that I actually cherish the most.

The historic 30-minute radio program, "Hour of Decision®," was first heard in 1950 and literally began the media outreach of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.  Through the years, Billy Graham has remained faithful to the simple message of Christ: "God loves you and you can become a new person in Christ!"

The Gospel Mr. Graham has preached never changes. Human methods of proclaiming the Gospel change. Music changes ...

Our Hope in Christ

I love this verse – it brings me comfort, security, and hope!  Are you suffering in some way and need encouragement? 

Draw comfort from this scripture that God is with you, and He will strengthen and help you!  It’s His promise!

Emilie Barnes knows about suffering, and seeking God for help – and HOPE!  Through her struggles with cancer and other life experiences, she ...

New Station Grant to Fund Local & Global Projects

GrantDo you want your station to reach beyond--to go further in reaching the unreached with the love of Christ?

Would you like an opportunity to launch an idea for a specific station project to reach people -- and the resources to fund such an effort?

There's a grant for that.

Reach Beyond (formerly HCJB Global) is introducing the Reach Beyond Grant.  In 2014, they will distribute several station project grants to help fund local and global "reach beyond" initiatives.  It's a grant to fund your ministry, not theirs.

For the past 83 years, Reach Beyond (formerly HCJB Global) has ...

Easter Through the Eyes of God

To the untrained eye, it seems like nothing more than an example of human wickedness: false accusations and an unjust trial that led to an innocent man's murder.  But Jesus' death was anything but ordinary.  In it, God's eternal plan of salvation was unfolding. 

Starting this week on "Grace to You®," John MacArthur begins his timely study of Jesus on Trial, giving listeners an eyewitness account of the events leading to Christ's execution while sharing details that are often overlooked.  This powerful series of messages continues through April 14.

Then, in the week leading up to Resurrection ...
