Dear listener, 

"He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of His birth," Luke 1:14

Studies show that you, your family and friends will be hit with over 7,000,000 brand impressions next year because of the bombardment by every form of media on the planet. The bad news is most of what you see and hear will be negative. Fear sells, so it’s embedded into music, information, advertising and entertainment almost everywhere you turn.

Not on CHRI!
Every day, all day and all night, your CHRI Team focuses on encouraging and strengthening you, your faith, family and friends by offering you tools to lift yourself up, so that you can be a blessing to others.

But we need your help!

Please tell your family and friends about CHRI!
A bigger audience means more people in your region experiencing the peace and goodwill that comes with knowing Jesus Christ. At CHRI we believe that by listening to Christian music, a catchy song that keeps playing over and over in your head will be lifting you up all day by lifting Him up. And, when you tune in to a Bible teaching show you'll be putting on the armor of God, preparing to defend your faith, family and friends in the never ending battle of life. And that can happen daily when you build and protect CHRI, your source of encouragement, in all you believe, 24/7!

Please give!
If you can, support your radio station, a registered charity, with the gift of your donation this Christmas. A gift, that will help keep the lights on at CHRI and the love of God flowing out over Canada for another season of blessing.

Let's "rejoice because of His birth" and share our joyful Christmas.

- From Bill Stevens, General Manager, our volunteer Board of Directors, volunteers and staff.

New Radio Antenna

signal issuesIf you are experiencing signal issues, it is because we are getting a new antenna and are broadcasting on low-power (for the safety of the workers). The new antenna will help us reach more listeners – so thank YOU for helping us spread more hope and encouragement in Ottawa and BEYOND!
Listeners outside of Ottawa are most affected. The work should be complete by the end of the week.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please stream online here or download the free app.
