RADIO MINISTRY

 Since March 22, 1942, our Sunday worship has been broadcast live on WDSM, 710 AM radio. This ministry is a major component of Gloria Dei’s evangelism and has remained a significant witness to the community and region for several decades. It has also made it possible for people to participate in worship who may otherwise not be unable to attend in person.


Gloria Dei describes evangelism as proclaiming God’s saving gospel of justification by grace through faith, transmitting the gospel faithfully to future generations, and reaching out to all people to bring them to faith in Jesus Christ.


God is present each week as we gather for worship and hear the gospel, the good news of God’s reconciling love for us in Christ. Radio ministry makes it possible for more people not only to “listen in” but also to participate in the music, the prayers, the message, and the mission.

From Our Listeners

The radio ministry at Gloria Dei means a great deal to me.  I was baptized, confirmed, and married there.  My parents were instrumental in starting this ministry and rejoiced in its success in spreading the Gospel.  Now, since I am no longer able to attend church on Sunday, I am thankful to Gloria Dei for making it possible for me to participate in worship.  I set up a little altar with a flower and candles and join in the service.  The radio ministry at Gloria Dei is dear to my heart, and it is my hope that it will continue for many years to come.

Prayerfully and thankfully, 

- Betty, Ashland, WI


I am writing to thank you for your Sunday services.  I really listen every Sunday - makes my day.  I especially like the singers - what nice voices to hear.  I know they practice a lot.  Thank you.  It means so much.

We are missing so much our time at Gloria Dei - Saturday breakfasts, Bible study, circle, choir—but are enjoying the radio broadcasts through the Internet.

- Andy, Juneau, AK


I never miss it. I am so satisfied with the service, I feel like I’m there with my church family. It is faith strengthening, inspirational and comforting to me.

- Ruth, Duluth, MN


It gives me the chance to hear the Sunday morning service when I am not there, so I feel like I haven’t missed much.

From the Radio Ministry Coordinator

One of the most exciting facets of Gloria Dei’s evangelism is the long running broadcast of our worship service. We have held this service as a pillar of our ministry and for that support I thank you. It has been a joy to oversee this ministry as our Radio Ministry Coordinator.


Recent years have seen new management at Midwest Broadcasting and a renewed relationship that is heading in a very positive direction. Each year’s late Christmas Eve service is broadcast live in its entirety at 10:00 P.M. and aired again Christmas morning at 10:00 A.M. On Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil, worship is also broadcast live at 7:00 P.M. We are looking forward to more weekly live promos and other mentions during the week informing the WDSM radio audience of our religious programming.


Thanks to all those who have financially supported radio broadcasts. Thanks be to God!

Doug Maguire, Radio Ministry Coordinator
