“I know that I have some big shoes to fill in Jim Cress, but I’m really excited for what God has in store for Hope In The Night. My prayer is that the Lord will continue to use this program to offer much needed healing to those dealing with spiritual and emotional issues. As I co-labor alongside June, my hope is that callers and those listening will embrace the fact that it is Christ in us – His hope – that is being offered to them through his love and grace.”
