Beaming Out the Light
of the Gospel of Christ
By Nathan Owens
Did you hear yet that we decided to call it the Caribbean Radio Lighthouse? We
think the Lighthouse identity will help the spiritual purpose of the station to
be better understood by the people, and we are praying much already that God
will use the beaming out of the Light of the Gospel of Christ to lead many dying
souls out of darkness and into new life in Jesus Christ.—Al Snyder
The first Caribbean Radio Lighthouse (CRL) station manager, Al Snyder, wrote that
quote in October 1973 as plans were being formed to start a Christian radio station
on the island of Antigua. Almost two years later on September 7, 1975, the Caribbean
Radio Lighthouse began broadcasting Bible programs and Gospel music to the islands
of the Eastern Caribbean! Before the end of the year, CRL received its first letter of a
salvation decision from a woman on the nearby island of Montserrat.
The Caribbean Radio Lighthouse is still beaming out doctrinally sound Bible teaching
and Christ-honoring music from Antigua to a potential listening audience of over two
million people on more than 20 island countries. Much has changed in 44 years!
