Hour-Long Weekend Show Heard on 190 Stations Will Incorporate the Most Timely, Topical Segments from ‘Stand in the Gap Today’
PHILADELPHIA—Especially in this political climate and headline-making culture, there is no shortage of timely topics to discuss among the faithful. Each day on “Stand in the Gap Today,” a daily, live, one-hour radio program from the American Pastors Network (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.net), co-hosts talk about pressing issues as they relate to Christianity and the deterioration of our culture.
Now, the APN program “Stand in the Gap Weekend,” airing on 190 stations each Sunday, incorporates the best segments of the week and gives listeners news and insight from a biblical and constitutional perspective.
“At perhaps no other time in history has it been more important for the faithful to work diligently to cultivate real change in our society,” said APN President Sam Rohrer. “The timely topics we discuss each day over the airwaves help Christians speak truth into the culture about the important matters facing every American. ‘Stand in the Gap Weekend’ allows those messages to reach an even wider audience, so this virtual congregation of listeners can apply biblical and constitutional truth to their own lives.”
“Stand in the Gap Weekend” airs on AFR talk stations at 7 p.m. EST Sundays. To find an AFR station, visit http://afr.net/station-map/.
APN began its radio presence in 2012 with “Stand in the Gap” short features that now air daily on approximately 280 stations, include the American Family Radio and Bott Radio networks. In 2014, “Stand in the Gap” expanded to the weekend edition, providing hosts and pastors the opportunity to delve more deeply into the constitutional and biblical issues surrounding news of the day. Then in 2015, APN launched “Stand in the Gap Today,” hosted by Rohrer, Gary Dull of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN, www.papastors.net) and Dave Kistler of the North Carolina Pastors Network (NCPN, www.ncpastors.net).

APN recently announced a new initiative called “We Will Stand,” which invites America’s pastors to intentionally band together and faithfully stand for biblical truth in the public square, and let their congregations and communities know they, too, can be involved. Pastors can sign the “We Will Stand—Preach, Pray, Encourage, Engage” pledge and commit to preach passionately, pray fervently, encourage their congregations and engage as a minister together with civic leaders. Information about “We Will Stand” is available on APN’s newly redesigned web site at www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net.
APN offers pastors numerous online resources that help clergy choose sermon topics and find information for other church ministries. With some free and some paid resources, topics include abortion, apologetics, creation, the culture war, economics, education, the environment, history, homosexuality, Islam and marriage, along with many others.
The American Pastors Network is the largest, national network of pastors who believe in the authority of scripture; who boldly preach the whole counsel of God with a disciplined application of a biblical worldview to public policy; who are building a permanent infrastructure of biblically faithful pastors and lay leaders; and who are mobilizing congregations to participate in the political process on a non-partisan basis.
