In 2007, Communication Services launched a 24-hour-a-day Internet radio station at www.gbcradio.net. Known as GBC Internet Radio, the programming is a blend of Christian music, informational messages, program features, and sermons. In May 2009, a program called “Life With Purpose Radio” began airing on FamilyNet’s Sirius Satellite radio station 161 each Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 4:30 p.m.. The 30-minute program includes stories of inspiration from people all over the world who have made the commitment to follow where God leads.
