Media Committee Volunteers Welcome

The media ministry of the First Baptist Harrison exists to help reach the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This ministry has been a vital part of the church for over 70 years going from a live hourly radio broadcast at 11:00am every Sunday morning and then moved to a taped delayed television broadcast. First Baptist Harrison now live streams the Sunday services on our website, www.fbcharrison.org.  Technology has evolved but the mission is still the same, to reach the people of North Arkansas and Southern Missouri, and the world, with the message of Christ.

All the audio, video, and lighting production, along with building and maintaining of the website, is handled by volunteers that give their time to this ministry. If you have an interest in serving as part of this incredible ministry, please contact Dave Hart at dave.hart@fbcharrison.org,  Bruce Stafford at brucecstafford@gmail.com or Bob Wheeler at bobwheeler@cox.net.

No experience is needed, training will be provided.  Jobs are available on a rotating basis, so you are not obligated to serve every week.
