Praise Broadcasting Network's Mission is to provide hope and encouragement to
Christians around the world and to help them develop a more intimate relationship
with our Lord. We do this in part by playing "the most beautiful and
intimate praise and worship music this side of heaven" and broadcasting
"Praise Until Dawn" live every weekday.
There are many ways you can help PBN accomplish this calling of God. We
have a number of monthly bills, as well as an assortment of one-time needs
that you can sponsor in whole or in part. These are listed below and will
be added to and changed as time goes by.
You can help the Mission of PBN by going to

Business related purchases. We try hard to keep purchases to a
minimum. But, with any Radio Broadcasting Network, there are
charges that are hard to avoid. This card is used when charges
are necessary, and there is not enough cash on hand.
This card is used for paying the companies that carry and transmit our Broadcast Signal.

The Systems Programmer PBN uses for much of its software development, has given us a TREMENDOUS
discount because of his belief in the Mission of PBN. He has charged us only $30 per hour plus some
extra for little incidentals, when he could have charged upwards of $100 per hour. Software development
is a very expensive and time intensive process. He has patiently waited. It is time to get Don paid.
