Podcast: Interview with Dwight Beavers of Voices For Christ

Digital Sojourner recently posted a review of the Voices For Christ website. The VFC website features more than 50,000 audio sermons in mp3 format. The site has been a tremendous blessing to countless English speaking believers around the world.

Behind VFC is a small, all volunteer team of believers who freely give of their time and talents. This team keeps the site online and constantly growing.

When VFC first went online in the Spring of 2005 there were several hundred audio messages available. Since then VFC has steadily grown to over 50,000 messages. Most of the messages were originally recorded years ago on cassette tapes, which means each tape must go through a time consuming process to digitize and save in mp3 format.

Recently I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Dwight Beavers in Durham, NC. Brother Dwight has spent thousands of hours digitizing countless messages. The work he does is far from glamorous, and often tedious. Nevertheless, as he describes in the interview it is a “labor of love.” Digital Sojourner is posting this interview with the prayer that regardless of the nature of your service for the Lord, glamorous or not, tedious or exciting, you will be encouraged and inspired. To God be the glory.

    This was a great interview, thanks Scott!

  2. You’re welcome Don! I had a great time visiting with Dwight and seeing his setup to digitize the cassette recordings. It was a very encouraging time for myself, and I trust the podcast interview will be an encouragement to others as well.

    Oh, and thanks for the shout out on Facebook!
