Helping Make Sense of a Complicated Economy Through ‘Money Mission Friday’ Radio Programs
American Pastors Network Says Our Resources Are God’s Anyway, and He Will Bless Those Who Seek to Follow His Commands and Trust Him
PHILADELPHIA—January is Financial Wellness Month, and the American Pastors Network (APN) has been helping faith-minded listeners think about their money in a godly way through its weekly “Money Mission Friday” radio programs.
To close out each week on “Stand in the Gap Today,” host and APN President Sam Rohrer, along with co-host Gary Dull, welcomes regular guest William Parker. He is an authority on Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), a Kingdom Advisor, wealth manager and Principal of Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) with the website, www.BRIinvesting.com. Recent program titles have included: “Down But Not Necessarily Out,” “Understanding the Debt Trap” and “The Case for Cash.”
“No matter how you look at today’s financial and economic news, analysis is hard, and predictions are even harder but ignoring the news is disastrous,” Rohrer said. “That is why we not only highlight the major economic issues but uncover the underlying principles and connect them to corresponding biblical principles each week on ‘Money Mission Friday.’ We believe these programs are answering key questions not only from an economic perspective but providing analysis regarding biblical stewardship of finances, saving, spending and Biblically Responsible Investing.”
Economic matters, Rohrer added, impact everyone, and are a major factor in all areas including foreign policy, war and peace, market fluctuations, national security, oil prices, energy dependence and much more.
“The main fact to keep in mind is that it all belongs to God,” Rohrer said. “We might think it all belongs to us because our name is on the account. But is it really ours? What does the Bible say about money? Actually, a great deal—about wealth, ownership of that wealth and the duty to use it properly. The Bible also speaks about investing, looking ahead and laying up treasure—not here on Earth but in Heaven. There are duties, of course, to our families and children here, but there’s an emphasis on the eternal. At the same time, God promises blessings to those people and those nations who follow God’s commands and fear and trust in Him.”

In 2018, APN debuted its new “Stand in the Gap” television program, which considers transcending cultural issues, seemingly difficult to navigate, from a biblical worldview perspective. “Stand in the Gap TV” airs on several networks, including WBPH in Philadelphia, VCY-TV in Milwaukee and Upliftv nationally. For the weekly, half-hour program, Rohrer and co-host and millennial pastor Isaac Crockett welcome expert guests to lend insight into topics such as: gun control, immigration, opioid addiction, race relations, Israel, Islam, marriage, voting and more.
The “Stand in the Gap” radio ministry includes the 60-second “Stand in the Gap Minute” radio feature, which airs on about 385 stations, and “Stand in the Gap Today,” which airs on more than 400 stations. Additionally, “Stand in the Gap Weekend” re-airs the most engaging segments from the previous week on about 240 stations.
