Unsung Hero – Al Sanders posted by John Sorensen on Jun 22, 2018
This week on Share Life Today, we’ve been focusing on “Unsung Heroes of the Faith.” Today’s hero is an Ambassador for Christ.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, president of Evangelism Explosion International. Al Sanders coupled his love for radio with a vision to reach people for Jesus through the airwaves. While still a teenager, he started as an announcer in Christian radio. Then he began hosting and producing television programs. In fact, the next time you hear your favorite pastor on-air—credit Al for the idea of using sermons to create radio and television content. That was a huge innovation in Christian programming. Al also created an agency to bring ministry and media together and he called it Ambassador based on II Corinthians 5:20, “We are therefore ambassadors for Christ.” Al’s now in his 90’s and his wife Margaret has been by his side for 70 years. Today, you too can be a hero of the faith by telling someone about Jesus. To learn how, visit ShareLife.today.
