HBU Press Releases

HBU to launch new radio ministry

June 21, 2013

Dr. Robert B. Sloan, Jr. will host a brand new radio program beginning July 1st. A Higher Education will air weekdays at 3pm on 100.7 The Word (KKHT) in Houston. This new program will feature conversations between Dr. Sloan and a variety of influential and engaging guests as well as his best sermons.

A Higher Education is produced by HBU in cooperation with Salem Communications. The 25-minute program will initially be available via broadcast in Houston or live-streaming online.
 
Dr. Sloan's unique experiences as both a pastor and a university president make him especially well-suited to deliver valuable and interesting radio content. He is a gifted communicator who can explain complex topics in easy-to-understand and approachable ways. He is also well-connected in both academia and the Christian community.
     
HBU's new radio project will enrich lives all over Houston, while also raising the university's profile in and beyond the city. A Higher Education will also serve to move forward HBU's Ten Pillars vision.

"I want HBU clearly to be known as a rigorous university that takes seriously a Christian worldview," said President Sloan. "That means we try to think deeply and critically about our commitments as Christians, the scriptural basis of those commitments, and how they may be put into practice in the real world."

Dr. Sloan continued, "At a more personal level, this program fulfills my own sense of calling. My earliest calling as a Christian was to be a preacher and a teacher of the word of God. I've spent my life studying the Scriptures and look forward to this new opportunity to share God's word-in fact, to share it in a way that reflects both a serious study of its history, background, and theology, and also my desire to allow the Scriptures to shape my life."
