Member Spotlight – Kristen Henriques

What led you to a career in the radio industry? 

I’ve always had an interest in radio, so when a job opened up at RZIM working as the liaison between the ministry and their radio partners it seemed like a perfect fit. While my job has shifted over the years, it’s been so exciting to work with those in radio as we all strive towards the common goal of reaching others with the Gospel.

What advice would you give people new to the business? 

Sit down and come up with a mission statement for your job or team. This will help keep you focused on your mission, especially in a ministry setting where it can become easy to lose track of your purpose when inundated with projects and tasks.

Give a shoutout to someone who is making a difference in radio and what are they doing to make an impact? 

The Christian radio stations here in the Atlanta market all do such a great job of connecting with the audience and being a pillar in their community. This is one of the reasons why I believe radio is still such a critical tool for connecting with and reaching others; because Christian stations make it their mission to be there for their listeners and help make a difference in their community.

Tell us about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the most significant in your career. 

I graduated with my Masters in Marketing/Public Relations May 2018 and the decision for me to go back to school and get my masters has made a huge impact on my life, both professionally and personally.

Tell us about a story of a Christian song that made a difference in your life or the life of a listener. 

My aunt fought a three year battle with cancer and last April (2018) things started to get worse. As her health continued to decline and we realized she was in her last few months of her life there were a lot of songs that ministered to me, specifically the song “Even If” (MercyMe) and “It is Well” (Bethel). They served as a much needed reminder that no matter what happened I needed to continue to keep my faith and trust in God.
