Voice FM future uncertain despite strong support

Toowoomba has backed the idea of creating a ‘Church Without Walls’, donating over $22,000 to 92.9 Voice FM’s End of Financial Year Appeal. 

Despite falling well short of the target of $50,000, there were still many positives to be gained from appeal, according to Voice FM General Manager, Damien Johnson.

“Overall, I am pleased with the results of this appeal”, Mr Johnson said, “It demonstrates that there is strong community support for the vision and mission of Voice FM, and when we compare figures from last year I think this year will show a slight improvement in that support, which is positive”.

It is yet to be known how the deficit between the target and the funds raised will affect the station, which, in addition to maintaining and growing its current capacity, also needs to relocate by the end of the year.

“Of course I am concerned by how far short of our target we fell”, Mr Johnson added, “I do not think the target was unrealistic, and had we achieved it, I would be feeling more confident about the level of community support behind us, and our ability to grow in the direction we are aiming for. We may have to make some adjustments in our future plans to accommodate the shortfall”.

However confidence in the vision of the station remains high as Voice FM now looks towards the next stages of development.

“I see Voice FM as playing a very important role within our community,” Damien said. “We’re creating a sense of community that connects Christian’s from all denominations and in doing so, strengthens the growing unity that exists within the local Church.”

“But bigger than that, we’re creating and building connections between the Church and the broader community, fostering a culture that first and foremost sees that we are all in this together. God is not just for the Christians, the good news is that Jesus is for everyone.”
