The online platform is meant to enable young people to discover their potential.
Recently, Linda Mntungwa will start an online radio channel to offer a platform to ambitious moderators and artists to showcase their talents.
Voice of the People (VOP) will be released live in October.
As from the City Press publisher Penelope Masilela.
The 42-year-old says he is creating a platform to develop communities and enable young people to reach their full potential.
“I minister in a disadvantage community where there are no opportunities for young people. As a leader, I thought of developing something that will uplift the community,” Linda said.
“There is always a wrong perception when it comes to churches because people think pastors are the ones who benefit from them. However, it is our duty to empower the communities we minister to.”
The Pastors Forum Chairperson of Kingsway said there are many young people looking to enter the media industry, but the options are limited.
“Even though it is an online radio channel, I believe it will reach the masses, as almost everything is done digitally now.
“We already have 12 volunteer presenters, but we also need volunteers who will focus on marketing and administration,” he said.
“After the launch, I plan to engage with local businesses so they can help us in marketing the channel.”
The pastor said their show aims to uplift and educate the audience while entertaining them.
“I want the community to be informed and equipped with real stories. Ever since the pandemic started, there has been a lot of fake news that has misled the community. I aim to make sure people receive the correct information about whatever is happening in their communities.
“I also want to see these young people getting opportunities at well-known radio stations after learning basic skills on this platform,” said Linda.
Linda said besides being a pastor, his church, House of Grace Evangelist Church International, has always given to the less fortunate.
“We would also appreciate a donation of a computer and printer to help us create a studio at the church.”
They recently donated school shoes and sanitary napkins to children in need in the Kingsway community.
Linda added that he was grateful for the help she received from Petros Khoz, founder of Radio Vutta and DaveytonTV.
Anyone who wants to volunteer as a moderator, Presenter or offer other skills can email Linda a short motivational letter to [email protected]
