Fr. Joseph Huneycutt, the assistant priest at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Houston said “The launch of our national Orthodox radio program in Houston represents a united effort by our Orthodox parishes in this area to reach out to our neighbors with the message of Orthodoxy. It is also a powerful tool to keep our faithful connected to the Church between Sunday services.”

Fr. Chris Metropulos, the host of Come Receive The Light, and the executive director of OCN, said “Adding the great city of Houston to our growing number of local communities who hear CRTL is a wonderful opportunity for mission and ministry. I look forward to expanding our outreach all across Texas.”
