Hello, I’m Don Hawkins, President of Encouragement Communications and the General Manager of The Worship Channel.
I’m thankful for the pioneering work of Mark Mohr and Westwood Ministries for launching The Worship Channel and introducing all of us to this unique internet Christian radio station.
Our goal for the radio station is to reach out to believers everywhere with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to share music and messages as we prepare for the imminent return of Christ for His Church.
Conservative, familiar inspirational music of the church and recording artists with a strong ministry focus in their music plays a key role in our mission. Many of our featured artists no longer receive airplay on Christian radio today and we are blessed to continue to celebrate these beloved music ministries.
We feature Bible teachers who take great pains to deliver Scriptural and challenging messages of discipleship and obedience to our Heavenly Father.
The Worship Channel provides messages of hope with a ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ focus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for His Glory.
Thank you for listening and for telling others about
Our Ministry Team
It’s our pleasure and our joy to serve you in strengthening your walk with Christ!
Let’s journey together – for His Glory!

Keith Mayo – Chief Engineer, Announcer
Keith was born in 1956 in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, the only child of an army veteran of World War II and a school teacher. Keith met Jesus at age 12 after listening to a message from Josh McDowell. It was then that he also realized that he wanted to become involved in radio broadcasting, securing his first radio job at age 14. A graduate of West Chester State College (now University) in 1978 with a BS in Business Management, his career has included jobs at The Voice of America, and as an owner/operator of several FM stations. In 1999 the Lord helped him to understand that his broadcasting experience should be used for His glory, and he’s been working in Christian broadcasting ever since. Prior to his service on The Worship Channel, Keith served as Chief Engineer for the Criswell Radio Network and manager of Criswell’s KSYE serving Wichita Falls and Lawton, Oklahoma.
Keith’s lovely bride is Ping from Shanghai, China and after losing two children, they were blessed with one son Curtis (another miraculous story) who is an Eagle Scout, and a graduate of Baylor University where he majored in bassoon and Music Education. Curtis is married to Rebecca and teaches band in the Richardson Independent School District.
I have committed my way to the Lord as He has opened the door for my involvement at The Worship Channel. It is a testament to the Lord how my experience aligns with the needs of the Worship Channel and I trust in Him to use me for His glory! Thank you for praying for me, my family, and The Worship Channel. May God bless you.” – Keith Mayo
