WGTS 91.9 Dedicates New Broadcast Center

(Rockville, MD) – After 62 years in the same Takoma Park, Maryland location, WGTS is celebrating the grand opening of its new broadcast ministry center in Rockville, Maryland.

“This has been a dream decades in the making,” said WGTS President and General Manager Kevin Krueger. “The way God has worked through listeners and givers to make this center a reality is truly a miracle. We’re praying that the new ministry center is simply a launching pad to share the hope and encouragement that comes from Jesus with even more people in Washington D.C. and beyond.”

At a recent open house event Montgomery County Council members Sidney Katz and Will Jawando, as well as Rockville mayor Bridget Newton, all welcomed the station to the area. They also presented a proclamation commemorating “August 23, 2019” as WGTS 91.9 Day in Montgomery County, Maryland.
“We’re excited to welcome you to the neighborhood and we look forward to finding ways that we can serve together,” said Mayor Newton.

A small group of special guests, politicians, supporters and their families came to the center for a mini-concert with artist Matthew West. After the concert, dinner was served and the guests got a private tour of the facility.
The new 13,000 square-foot facility contains two identical on-air studios, three production rooms and a television studio. It replaces the 3,000 square-foot World War II-era building that has served as the headquarters of the ministry since 1957. WGTS will maintain the majority of the Takoma Park facility as an emergency back-up and special projects site.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
