October is Clergy Appreciation Month. WNZR helps you honor your pastor!

Each Friday (starting October 9th), 5 local pastors will be honored on The Morning Thing (at approximately 7:30am). Our morning show hosts will share their names and churches along with comments from their church family. (5 entries will be drawn at random).

Each pastor that is mentioned will receive a $20.00 gift certificate to a local restaurant to enjoy a dinner out with family. Each pastor will ALSO receive the Kyle Idleman book “Aha – The God Moment That Changes Everything”.

Call (740) 392-9090 now and tell us why you love your pastor. Or go HERE to submit the online form.

Thanks to these restaurants for donating gift certificates for our pastor dinners:
The Southside Diner (week #1 – Friday 10/9)
The Alcove Restaurant (week #2 – 10/16)
Allison’s Finer Diner (week #3 – 10/23)
and Jake’s Restaurant of Mount Vernon (week #4 – Friday 10/30)

We will draw a GRAND PRIZE for Clergy Appreciation Month this year! All pastors will be entered into a drawing for an overnight stay at the Mount Vernon Grand Hotel.

Thanks to City on a Hill Productions for their donation of the Kyle Idleman books and thanks to the Mount Vernon Grand Hotel for their grand prize donation!
