Matt Coker is creating a Christian Mix Radio Station

My name is Matt Coker, a Christian, a husband, a father, and the founder of Back Row Radio.

Back Row Radio is our free-form online radio station that features amazing Christian hits you don't hear on the mainstream stations, crazy good indie Christian music you've been missing out on, and thought-provoking talk programs, including our exclusive morning show. We are a commercial-free station available via our smartphone app, online streaming, and your Alexa smart speaker.

As a stay-at-home Dad, funding this ministry has been a challenge and to move forward and grow, we're going to need the funding to get us there and keep us there. Hosting, equipment, licensing, advertising, and travel expenses are all things that we must take into account.

Patreon is a service that's become quite popular in online ministries. Artists and authors use it to get ongoing support directly from their followers, and in return, to offer some rewards to their patrons. It's kinda like Kickstarter, but instead of one big push to fund a single project, it's a method of continuous support from patrons to a content creator whose work they believe in. It's a very cool model and I think it's the direction the world of content-creation is headed. It also happens to be the way Christian ministries have been funded since the early church - just a little more high-tech.

Back Row Radio is a Christian radio station unlike any other, featuring a lot of inspiring, amazing Christian music you didn't even know you NEEDED to hear! But in order to reach more ears than just those already connected to us and to truly start building upon the foundation we started on, we need to reach our funding goal of $600 a month. This will allow me to spend much more time creating fresh content and build our music library (while also making sure they don't shut off my electricity).

If you're tired of the same old Christian radio with songs that all sound the same and you're ready to be a part of something with a lot more flavor and variety, if you're ready to jumpstart the next generation of Christian radio, if you're ready to be a part of the Christian music resurgence, please consider becoming a monthly donor.

If you're not yet convinced, give us a listen for a few weeks. I'm certain you'll see the value of this ministry, and I hope you'll partner with us at one of the tiers listed.

Thank you, friends.

Goals
$98 of $600 per month
If we can reach a monthly donation of $600, this will enable us to advertise, purchase needed equipment, and create more original content. This will also allow me to spend several more hours a week devoted to this growth as a "part time job".
