Our mission is to present the highlights from the entire catalogue of Christian Music inspired by the Holy Spirit since the Jesus Movement of the late 1960’s and forward to today. Hence the description, “The Greatest Christian Music”. This becomes the background for integrating sounds of Contemporary Worship as inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Our sole purpose at SnTRadio.com is to encourage, edify and enrich the lives of our listeners. We aim to be an oasis for those Believers who labor in increasingly hostile secular work environments.
Modern Worship is programmed at regular daily intervals following David’s pattern of Outer Court, Inner Court, and Holy of Holies worship. This is key because “God inhabits the praises of His people.” On Sundays, SnTRadio.com presents only Contemporary Worship and Praise songs from the past 50 years with absolutely no commercials.
The massive task of assembling a complete online catalogue of all the songs since the Jesus Movement and forward in one place is the known as the SnT Online Christian Music Library. Right now it contains hundreds of out-of-print and never before digitized (mp3) songs and albums. More are being added daily. Soon this awesome resource will be available to anyone in the world, at any time, in any place as accessed by mobile devices and PC’s.
The concept for SnTRadio.com came in an impartation during an ordinary midweek Worship service to James Burkhardt as he was sitting in a pew next to his wife. “I was worshiping and singing when the Holy Spirit suddenly began putting all these detailed ideas in my head. It was just like receiving an answer to a prayer but seemed like a download of information. I sat down and made some quick notes then prayed for clarification later that night in my little production studio. Within a span of three days I had 95% of the entire breadth and scope of what SnT Radio was to become. This is my passion and life’s work.”
SnTRadio.com as a concept went live on the internet December 23, 2008 with an hour long commercial free Christmas Music download. Tens of thousands of e-mails and messages were sent worldwide over LinkedIn, ecademy, and Facebook. The SnTRadio website received nearly 60,000 hits on December 24 and 25, 2008. Due to a back injury sustained while helping a homeless person move into a new residence after Christmas, James was finally able to launch SnTRadio.com 24/7 on Memorial Day 2009 and has not looked back.
