Welcome to Good News for Today from Baptist Press. We share and spotlight the good God is doing in this world. Through the stories of Baptist Press, we’ll introduce you to Christians and churches who are making an impact for the glory of God.

Sex Abuse Report, Compassion, & Sports Missions

Members of the Southern Baptist Convention are processing through the details of a 288-page report on the alleged mishandling of sexual abuse claims released publicly Sunday. Crediting God’s tenderness and compassion, Leanne Jamieson says pregnant women in crisis often stick to her very soul, causing her to take their concerns to God’s altar. Betty Wiseman considers her path to be orchestrated by God.

Church Security, Puerto Rico, & Migrant Poverty

Churches are taking another look at their security plans after nearly a dozen people were killed in a pair of recent shootings. Students at Universidad de Puerto Rico (UPR) have not only a space to study, but also a safe place to ask spiritual questions, thanks to a Send Network church plant. Though each migrant’s journey to the U.S. looks different, many face some of the same tragedies and hardships on their journey.

Ukrainian Children, Public Baptisms, Seminary Graduations

Mothers and their youngsters who fled Ukraine for safety to Prague are “broken-hearted, desperate, searching for hope.” A public baptism including more than 130 changed lives is significant on its own. Jamie Dew, NOBTS president, urged the schools’ graduates to consider the question that would impact their lives and ministries.

About the Program

You’ll hear stories of how God is using churches like Champion Forest in Houston to reach hundreds with the gospel of Jesus Christ…

How disaster relief workers brought fast and gracious physical and spiritual help to those affected by deadly tornadoes across the south and midwestern portions of the United States…

Even how God used a 37-pound catfish to send missionaries to the ends of the earth.

Those are the stories we’ll tell on Good News for Today.

The new broadcast is hosted by Baptist Press Editor Brandon Porter. Porter was a pastor for more than 20 years and the former editor of Kentucky Today, the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s news outlet.

There he reported on state and national news, religious liberty issues, tragedy and disaster, and published policy pieces and op-eds. Since 2003, Porter has also hosted a weekly 30-minute teaching and talk program on WKCT in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

“The world needs to hear more good news about our awesome God,” Porter said. “The news industry is typically driven by controversy, conflicts and issues, but Baptist Press has the unique opportunity and ability to share good news stories of our good and loving God.”
