Joseph Kebbie Joins YNOP in Preparation of the Launch of New Life Africa Satellite Network
We are very excited to announce that Joseph Kebbie is joining YNOP as we prepare to launch the New Life Africa Satellite Network on May 1st!
At New Life Africa, he will provide valuable experience and guidance as we seek to provide relevant, impactful, programming across the African continent via satellite, online, mobile apps, and local FM radio stations.
YNOP General Manager, Roger Lonnquist, said "Joseph's background and skills are exactly what we need. We had been hoping the Lord would provide someone like him to help us launch the New Life Africa Satellite Network and are grateful that Joseph is joining us in this vital work."
Joseph is a resident of Ghana, and has a heart to use media to share the gospel across Africa.
He grew up as a refugee in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, and Guinea.
At a very young age, Joseph, like many other Liberians, suffered the trauma of war. By God's grace, he grew up and made a decision that led him to Ghana and then to South Africa where he studied video and radio production at Media Village.
Upon completion of his studies, he became head of the Radio Department at Media Village and helped train a number of Africans to do radio production.
Joseph has a passion to see his continent changed through Christ. He desires to see powerful, relevant, and life changing Christian media (especially radio) blanket Africa. In that quest, God guided him to serve Him at ministries which were passionate about reaching and empowering African people with the redemptive power of the gospel of Christ!
For the past 13 years, Joseph has been the training coordinator for Reach Beyond in Sub-Saharan Africa, and has served as the Africa Director for Christianityworks for 15 years. He also serves as the Africa Director for PraiseLive.
Over half of the population on the continent of Africa are youth, which has caused Joseph to constantly be thinking of ways to reach them with the gospel of Christ. This passion led him and his wife to establish Vox Radio in Liberia in 2017, a radio station programmed to reach the youth of the country.
Joseph said, "My family and I are deeply excited to join YNOP as I learn and contribute in any little way possible to see the New Life Africa Satellite Network come alive across the African continent."
Please pray for Joseph and his family as he begins serving the Lord with the rest of us at YNOP and New Life Africa!
And, please join us in praising the Lord for bringing Joseph to YNOP / New Life Africa!
