SNTRadio.com is first and foremost an online worship experience. SNT is short for “Spirit and Truth” inspired by John 4:23-24: “But the time is coming–indeed it’s here now–when true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship Him that way. “ (New Living Translation (©2007). The roots of SNT Radio began with James Burkhardt syndicating a comprehensive Christian Music program on local stations in Orlando, Florida, first airing for two hours on a Saturday afternoon in June 2008. The show grew to include Sunday morning Praise & Worship programming that summer.
His late wife TeriLyn suggested streaming the concept worldwide. The format and internet strategy came to James in a heavenly download during an evening of worship and prayer. The next day he retreated into his recording studio to begin producing hundreds of segments of Christian Music and Praise & Worship sets. On Memorial Day 2009 SNTRadio.com began streaming Christian Music online 24/7 and haven't looked back
Our dream is to provide the entire world with non-stop streaming Christian music until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ and beyond. We have this station set up to stream no matter what happens! Our mission is to present the entire catalog of Spirit inspired Christian music since the Jesus Movement of the late 1960′s and forward. We desire to encourage, edify and enrich the lives of our listeners.
