We are a radio ministry of teaching and encouragement, designed to help us think and act Biblically in relation to our own lives
and the world around us.

The danger to which we North American Christians are prone is the passive enjoyment of Bible teaching. And it’s easy for radio ministries to foster that passivity.

But the Bible itself teaches that when we hear God’s truth without translating that truth into action, our spirits become hardened . . . petrified.

Compassion Radio exists not merely to teach the truth, but to provide listeners with opportunities to ‘do the truth’. That’s why we’ve built and supported an orphanage in Hong Kong, provided beds for homeless children in India, counseled ‘street kids’ in Hollywood, ministered to widows, carried Bibles into China and VietNam, helped establish churches and provide Bibles in Indonesia, North Korea, and Southeast Asia, provided sight for the blind in Africa, aided refugees from Kosovo, and given tens of thousands of dollars to feed the hungry.

Our goal is to teach the Word clearly and accurately, always applying that Word to building the Kingdom.

Cher and I invite you to join our family as we learn together, witness together, and serve together.

Faithfully in Christ,

Norm Nelson

Compassion Radio

began in January of 1998, building on a 54-year foundation of sound doctrinal teaching and fiscal responsibility under its former name, The Morning Chapel Hour, founded by Norm Nelson’s father, Wilbur Nelson.

Norm began his broadcasting career at age 5 on the Morning Chapel Hour, telling a Bible story and giving the mail address.  Norm returned to the broadcast from pastoral ministry several years ago as co-speaker; moved on to the Presidency; became the sole speaker of the weekday program; and finally assumed the helm of the ministry in 1996.

At precisely that time, God opened up unsolicited and unparalleled opportunities for mission service through the broadcast, making it clear this is His mission for Compassion Radio.

Our purpose at Compassion Radio is not to make our organization big, but rather to help you make a big impact for Jesus Christ on a needy world.
