Sharing the Love and Word of God Across the Airwaves

Pastor Steve Hare’s passion is the driving force behind every tool he uses to reach others for God. As the Senior Pastor of Faith City Family Church, a large diverse congregation in the Northeast region, Pastor Steve maximizes each opportunity to get the message of Christ’s love out to a hurting world.

In 1994 Pastor Steve started a radio station 89.1 FM in Wilmington, Delaware which he grew into 20 FM radio stations. Reach Radio became Reach Gospel Radio on September 15, 2017. Pastor Hare said, “We felt that God was leading us to use the power of gospel music to reach this generation and take the message of the Cross to the streets. This two-time Stellar Award-winning radio network has a unique personality of being one of the only gospel radio networks that not only plays great gospel music 24/7, but literally mobilizes street reach teams that continually go into underserved and at-risk areas with the message of God’s love.

The Festival of Hope is one of the outreach initiatives founded by Pastor Steve. The Festival of Hope outreach is a major outreach event that impacts cities and communities with the gospel. This outreach event features the free expungement clinic, the Community Partners Expo, the job fair along with a powerful gospel presentation. In addition, there’s the big new clothing, shoes, and the fresh groceries give away. The teams send the message of God’s love echoing through the streets into the hearts of the homeless, the lost, children, and many people who are deeply hurting, inviting them to give their lives to Christ at the Cross.

Another outreach initiative is “The Day of the Cross”. Lives are literally transformed on the streets and communities are impacted as street teams take huge wooden crosses, sound systems, and supplies into drug and crime ridden areas in some of America’s toughest cities.

Pastor Steve is the recipient of numerous awards including the United Way Organization of the year award and the NAACP award for community service, as well as two Stellar Awards for excellence in radio broadcasting.

Pastor Steve continually remains steadfast that no matter who you are, no matter where you are in life – it all begins and ends with the heart.
