Press Release

“Faith Encouraged Live with Fr. Barnabas Powell” to Debut on September 14 

August 27, 2014, Chesterton, IN — Ancient Faith Radio is pleased to announce the debut of its third live call-in program. Titled “Faith Encouraged Live with Fr. Barnabas Powell,” the program will replace “Ancient Faith Today” on the second and fourth Sundays of each month beginning September 14. Kevin Allen, host of “Ancient Faith Today,” retired on August 11, ending his show’s two-year run.

“Faith Encouraged Live” will have a slightly different format and focus from “Ancient Faith Today.” While still featuring interviews with prominent Orthodox individuals on contemporary topics, it will also contain reflections and commentary by host Fr. Barnabas Powell, as well as readings from Scripture and the Church Fathers. 

“The show will be much more varied and eclectic than ‘Ancient Faith Today,’” says Bobby Maddex, Operations Manager of Ancient Faith Radio. “The interviews will represent only a small portion of ‘Faith Encouraged Live,’ and what occurs on the program will change from broadcast to broadcast. We knew we could not replicate what Kevin Allen did with his excellent program. Fr. Barnabas has his own unique strengths, and this new show will play to them. It’s going to be a different sort of radio call-in program, but just as insightful and entertaining as ‘Ancient Faith Today.’ We couldn’t be more excited about its premiere.”

Fr. Barnabas Powell is priest at Sts. Raphael, Nicholas, and Irene Greek Orthodox Church in Cumming, Georgia, and the host of the Ancient Faith Radio podcast “Life Encouraged.” He will also soon host the podcast “Life Encouraged Daily,” likewise on Ancient Faith Radio. 

Listen to the debut of “Faith Encouraged Live with Fr. Barnabas Powell” on September 14, 2014, at 8/7c on Ancient Faith Radio’s streaming talk station.

    With this addition to Ancient Faith Radio you continue to move the station forward. I’ve been a fan of Father Barnabas since I accidentally discovered him on You Tube about a year ago. I was so happy when he was added as a regular to the Ancient Faith podcast lineup. Although I will miss Kevin Allen, I believe that his replacement was an excellent choice and a compliment to an already outstanding lineup of educators and spiritual guides. Thank you for all that you do and God bless!
