My phone buzzed with a txt from a friend. ‘Please pray for our church family. Our building was burned down overnight, suspected arson.’ My heart sank. It would be bad news at any time, but this was early Sunday morning. Who did this? Why? How would this tight church community feel as they arrived for church later that morning only to find fire crews tearing the burning and twisted building apart? What would they do?
Letter’s from CEO Phil Edwards
Vision Kids Radio, a new 24/7 Kids audio channel dedicated to sharing God’s Word with young hearts has officially been launched. The channel features uplifting Christian music, engaging stories, and friendly voices that children under 12 will love. We’re also getting closer to securing DAB+ Digital Radio in Brisbane, with over 72% of the required funds already raised. The positive response during the trial broadcast of Vision Christian Radio and V180 Radio on DAB+ in Brisbane is an encouraging step towards our mission in helping Australia look to God Daily.
The Word for Today is a devotional that is helping bring Aussies hope, faith, and transformation. Hear testimonies of spiritual growth and salvation, even among prisoners and how you can be part of illuminating the darkness through Vision. Let’s make a difference together and proclaim the Gospel to all.
In a world filled with darkness, we are called to be the light. Help us continue sharing the Gospel and illuminating lives across Australia. Your prayers and support fuel our mission to bring hope and transformation. Together, let’s shine brightly and make a lasting impact. Donate before June 30.
Just take a look around your own town or city, or across our nation – it won’t take long to find people walking in darkness, searching for the light and life of Jesus. God has given us all gifts to fan into flame in our own personal ministry. And He also gives us opportunity to work together and achieve so much more than we could on our own.
I am thrilled to let you know that Vision has now also just started broadcasting city-wide across a second state capital, Brisbane. However, right now, Vision DAB+ Brisbane is just a trial. It can proceed to a long-term arrangement but only if we can raise $1 million.
I am thrilled to let you know that we now have an opportunity before us to bring Vision Christian Radio and V180 Radio to the city of Brisbane via DAB+ Digital. First Hobart, now Brisbane! We have been praying for a long time about Brisbane, and over the years have tried to secure effective broadcast opportunities. But a citywide service has not been possible – until now, thanks to our successful negotiations of a lease of DAB+ bandwidth.
Forty years ago, the leaders of the Ikuntji community had the vision to establish a giant cross on top of rugged and majestic Memory Mountain, west of Alice Springs. The dream has become a reality with the Forgiveness Cross set to be launched this Easter.
“What will it take for Australia to see revival?” Vision’s CEO Phil Edwards shares that he has been grappling with this very question over the past few months.
Dear friends Welcome to another year of looking to God daily with your Vision Christian Media family! We’re all thrilled, as I’m sure you are, with the launch of Hobart’s high-powered 104.3 FM station! Hobart’s new station is capable of reaching 250,000 souls with the Gospel of Jesus! This is all thanks to you, our [...]
Rev. Richard Johnson was the first to preach the gospel on Australian soil in Sydney on 3 February 1788. The arrival of the Word of God on our shores was hugely influential in the shaping of modern Australia.
At the time of Jesus’ birth, the spiritual battle going on would have been epic. Imagine Satan’s fury when God upped the ante by invading his territory in person through His son, Jesus. It would have sent him into panic mode. So he set out to have Jesus killed, not realising that the death of [...]

Dear friends, The love for God and generosity of our supporters never ceases to amaze me. We were privileged to hear many inspiring stories during Visionathon. The office is always abuzz during Visionathon [...]
“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 12:12 RSV In the last few years, the world has experienced a great shaking as news of wars and rumours of wars, economic chaos, [...]
Dear friends, We live in a world buzzing with activity, yet many people say they are lonely. The last few years of forced isolation escalated feelings of loneliness for some. And yet, some people can feel lonely in a crowded room. When left to fester, this emotion can transition into a deep sadness that overcomes [...]
Dear friends, ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’ Matthew 28:19 NKJV It is a blessing to come to work and hear the most amazing and inspiring stories of people who share how God has changed [...]
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1 NIV Dear friends, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of Vision’s mission to take the Gospel to the four corners of Australia and beyond using modern media. You may have noticed we’ve refreshed [...]
Dear friends, In the midst of today’s continuing uncertainties, I am so grateful to have the truth of God’s Word to stand on. The only thing we can count on in life is change! Lockdowns, new regulations, or even a change of government are all examples of things that don’t seem to remain the same [...]
Dear friends, Greetings in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ – To God be the glory, for the things he has done (and is still doing as we share his life-giving Word across Australia)! The value of our work together continues to come into sharp focus with comments like this; “Thank you for your [...]
Dear friends, “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brethren dwell in unity!” Psalm 133:1 Vision has only been made possible with the practical support and dedicated prayers of other fellow believers across Australia; who have graciously over the years joined with us as ‘co-missionaries’ to use mass media to take the Word of [...]
Dear friends, We all know that every new season brings both challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it’s hard to stay positive in the midst of uncertainty. That’s why hope is so important. To most people, hope is an unsure optimism. It’s a wish or desire for something without certainty of it being fulfilled. But for believers, [...]
Dear friends, I know it seems a lot is happening all around us at the moment, with traditional values being challenged more and more each day. But be reassured, God sees the big picture. Recently the resident Chaplain of Vision Christian Media, Ps Rob Mann, retired after 15 years of faithful service. You may know [...]
In late 2021 we had a glimpse into the life of a precious lady you have been helping through your support of Vision. Her situation is sensitive, so for the purpose of this letter we’ll call her Sarah. Her story really touched my heart.
In 2022 will you take the opportunity to worry, or the opportunity to trust God? Will you take steps to develop your faith, or are you happy to stay put (or worse, go backwards—perhaps without even realising it)?
PSALM 136 “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever.” (NIV) Dear friends, What do you see as you look back over 2021? The first response of many would be turmoil or disruption, but when I take a moment to refocus my eyes past those things, I can see God’s [...]
