Open House --- Sunday October 26

1pm - 4pm at the KHCB Studios

You are invited to “meet” and greet” the KHCB staff, volunteers, and Houston area programmers on Sunday, October 26, 1pm to 4pm CST. You’ll have the opportunity to see the “Air Control” rooms from which all of the KHCB programming broadcasts to 35 stations in English, Spanish and Chinese. You’ll see some of the gadgets that the engineers tinker with to keep the Network running 24/7.

There will be offsite parking at two new locations this year. The Guadalajara restaurant at 2925 SW Freeway is currently closed for renovations and KHCB has been given permission to use the parking lot. Nearby the Chick-fil-A on the Southwest Freeway feeder at Kirby, 2715 SW Freeway, has also graciously allowed us to use their parking lot. Entrances to the lots are available from the feeder or from Westpark. Shuttle buses will bring you to the KHCB studios from these locations. If you have questions or need directions please call KHCB at 713-520-5200. We look forward to seeing you and hope you will come with family and friends.

"Keeping the Hymns Close By"

What A Friend We Have In Jesus


…the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Author – Joseph Scriven, 1819-1886
Composer – Charles C. Converse, 1832-1918

Though it is not considered to be an example of great literary writing, it’s simply stated truths have brought solace and comfort to countless numbers of God’s people since it was first written in 1857. So relevant to the basic spiritual needs of people are these words that many missionaries state that it is one of the first hymns taught to new converts. The very simplicity of the text and music has been its appeal and strength. Joseph Scriven was born in 1819 of prosperous parents in Dublin, Ireland. At the sage of twenty-five he decided to leave his native country and migrate to Canada after the accidental drowning of his fiancée the night before their scheduled wedding.

“What A Friend We have In Jesus” was never intended by Scriven for publication. Upon learning of his mother’s serious illness and unable to be with her in far-off Dublin, he wrote a letter of comfort enclosing the words of this text. The poem was originally titled “Pray Without Ceasing”. Some time later when he himself was ill, a friend who came to call on him chanced to see the poem scribbled on scratch paper near the bed. The friend read it with keen interest and asked Scriven if he had written the words. Sciriven, with typical modesty, replied, “The Lord and I did it between us”.

The composer of the music, Charles C. Converse, was well-educated and his talents ranged from law to professional music. Though he was an excellent musician and composer with many of his works performed by the leading American orchestras and choirs of his day, his life is best remembered for the simple music so well suited to Scriven’s text. He composed the tune in 1868 and renamed the poem. Ira D. Sankey discovered the hymn in 1875, just in time to include it in his well-known collection, Sankey’s Gospel Hymns Number One. Later Sankey wrote, “The last hymn which went into the book became one of the first in favor.”

"For It Is God Who Works"

This book, written by Dolly Martin Monroe in 1997, chronicles the beginning of Houston's first Christian radio station. It contains barriers, obstacles, and financial difficulties through which the Lord navigated this ministry.

We invite you to read our testimony in the hope it may increase your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His ability to provide for the needs of those who are His.
