Praise FM began on KBHL in Osakis, Minnesota in 1985.
In 1995 God directed our staff and board of directors to change our format to worship and impressed our hearts with a promise that he would expand our ministry to share of His glory with the nations.
In response to this invitation we changed our format to include more prayer, more scripture and extended times of worship. We began to invite people into a place of abiding in him and began to hear their stories of bearing fruit as a result of encountering the Living God.
We added KBHZ in Willmar in 1996, and KCGN in Milbank in 1999.
In late 2008 we began to broadcast on KNOF in St Paul and Minneapolis through a lease agreement and partnership with North Central University. While operating in the Cities we have partnered with a many local organizations toward worship events and relief efforts in our community. Our online presence has been growing rapidly: on social media we have grown from several hundred people to tens of thousands of friends and followers within several years. We are able to complement our ministry over the airwaves through these platforms. Additionally, iTunes recently added Praise FM to their radio section giving an additional 200 million iTunes users access to our programming.
Best of all, God has allowed us to broadcast His gospel in tractors, in homes, and on interstates. He has even opened doors for us to reach people listening online from 154 nations.
And we believe that this is just the beginning. We see the roots of profound revival and renewal, and believe that God is raising this canopy of worship to help prepare our communities for what He plans to do.
Our history is really His story. His fame. His name. His glory. Our delight.
