Giving believers the correct tools to live the CHRISTIAN life in a rapidly changing culture is the focus of MOODY RADIO’s newest national weekday program, "Equipped with CHRIS BROOKS," which launches JANUARY 4th, 2016.
The live, one-hour program will be hosted by BROOKS, who has served as campus dean of MOODY THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY in MICHIGAN since 2013. He is also the senior pastor of EVANGEL MINISTRIES in DETROIT, MI, a 1,600-member church in the heart of the city.
“CHRIS’ humble, pastoral tone and depth of biblical knowledge and practical advice will serve our listeners well, and we are excited for what the Lord will do through this new program,” said MOODY RADIO VP COLLIN LAMBERT.
Featuring caller interaction, special guests and social media interaction, "Equipped" will tackle issues impacted by our shifting culture, including marriage, family, vocation, evangelism and other areas of the CHRISTIAN life.
“Many CHRISTIANS are disoriented, lost and confused in this hour, wondering what it means to be a CHRISTIAN in a world that is changing so rapidly and where there is a lot of hostility,” said BROOKS, who also serves on the executive team of EVERYONE A CHANCE TO HEAR (E.A.C.H.), an outreach program involving more than 500 churches in southeastern MICHIGAN. “I also find a lot of CHRISTIANS who feel defeated. My burden for CHRISTIANS is simple, that they would have confidence in the gospel and clarity in their calling in CHRIST.”
MOODY will air the live, call-in program across its owned-and-operated radio stations and their online streams from noon to 1p (CT). The program will also be heard via the network stream and iPHONE and ANDROID apps as well. The program is being made available to MOODY RADIO’s more than 700 affiliate stations.
“We’ll use every platform we can to engage the listener — through the app, the radio and social media,” added BROOKS. “These are real people who are trying to deal with real life and looking for biblical answers, and that’s what you’ll find on 'Equipped with CHRIS BROOKS.'”
BROOKS graduated from MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY with a bachelor of arts in finance, completed his master of arts in CHRISTIAN apologetics at BIOLA UNIVERSITY and graduated from the OXFORD CENTRE FOR CHRSTIAN APOLOGETICS at OXFORD UNIVERSITY. He and his wife, YODIT, are the proud parents of CHRISTOPHER, ZEWDITU, CAMERON and JUDAH, and live in WALLED LAKE, MI. They are expecting their fifth child this NOVEMBER, a daughter named SOPHIA.
