Dr. Fuller’s radio broadcast ministry has touched countless lives the world over, please see the example letter from a listener and read below a summary of our history.
Dear Mr. Fuller,
I have always appreciated your broadcast over the air. I am only eleven years old and when I listen it just brings me, like magic, to a place of peace. My mother has gone to be with the Lord Jesus about two months ago, and it is very hard for me and my sister, but your broadcast has made us all happy, even my daddy. I was saved about three years ago in a little Sunday school, before I even knew anything about your broadcast. I am sending you ten cents, for I have very little money, but I want it to help you to carry on. Good-by and may the Lord bless you.
…how it all started:
In 1925, a young pastor named Charles E. Fuller saw vast possibilities in the new invention called “radio.” He soon resigned from his pastoral responsibilities to give his full time to radio evangelism. By 1935, the voice of Dr. Fuller had become a familiar sound in the Western states. On October 3, 1937 the Old Fashioned Revival Hour aired its first broadcast over the 13 stations of the Mutual Network. Charles E. Fuller soon established the Gospel Broadcasting Association to sponsor his Old Fashioned Revival Hour (OFRH) program.
Beginning in 1997 a group of individuals miraculously came together who were much affected by the original Old Fashioned Revival Hour broadcast and had a longing to see it back on the airways once again. Each ones gifts and backgrounds seemed to perfectly complement one another’s, and we each knew the Lord was calling us to move ahead with assurance and boldness!
Dr. Dan Fuller, son of founder Dr. Charles Fuller gave the invitation to come to Christ on the first fresh Old Fashioned Revival Hour in many years, on a single station in Ventura, California in 2002.
Today, the Old Fashioned Revival Hour is broadcast on some 120 stations across the United States, on shortwave, and available anytime right here at OFRH.com.
Besides being a great joy to the many who grew up with this broadcast many years ago, young people are discovering the Old Fashioned Revival Hour for the first time.
TODAY young people are showing a genuine interest in vintage cars, the music of the Big Band era, as well as art deco in architecture and home decor. In other words, retro is “in.”
And convinced that the good news about Jesus is vital and “in” for every generation we are thrilled for the privilege to make the Old Fashioned Revival Hour available to a cross generational audience today.
