Ep. 181: Evangelical Media Habits

I’m Warren Smith and I’d like to welcome you to the MinistryWatch podcast.

Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, news that we examine from a Christian worldview perspective.  Our goal is to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.  

These mid-week “Extra” episodes are a chance for us to go deep with a particular topic, and today I’m pleased to have back on the program Ron Sellers, the president of Grey Matter Research and Consulting.   Ron Sellers and I discuss a new study his organization has done in conjunction with Infinity Concepts.  That study was published a week ago, and it’s called “Media Matters:  Evangelicals And The Media.”

Before we jump into that interview, I just want to note that we will have a way for you to get a copy of this nearly 26-page report in the show notes.



You’ve been listening to my conversation with Ron Sellers, the president of Grey Matter Research, which has just published a new study called “Media Matters:  Evangelicals and the Media.”

Before we go:  A few quick notes.

First, regular listeners to the podcast know that this is not the first time Ron Sellers has been on the program.  If you are a ministry leader, and you’re new to the program, you might want to give a listen to some of his previous appearances on the program.  His research provides insights into evangelical giving patterns that are helpful. Just go to the MinistryWatch website and type Ron Sellers into the search engine.

I also want to remind you that our thank you gift for the month of April is Randy Alcorn’s classic book on stewardship, “Managing God’s Money.”  We think this is a book every Christian should have in his or her library, and that’s why we’ll send it to you for a gift of any size to MinistryWatch this month.  Just go to MinistryWatch.com and hit the donate tab at the top of the page.

If money is a little tight now, you can still help the program.  Just rate us on your podcast app.  The more ratings we get, the higher we rank with search engines, and that means other people can find us more easily.  Rating us just takes a second, and it doesn’t cost you a dime.  It’s a free and easy – and important – way you can support the MinistryWatch podcast.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Jeff McIntosh. We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Emily Kern, Rod Pitzer, and Casey Sudduth. 

I’m Warren Smith, and – until next time – May God bless you.
