Fulfilling Dennis Rainey’s long-standing commitment to hand the microphone to a new generation when he reached 70 years of age, we’re so pleased to announce that DAVE AND ANN WILSON will join Bob Lepine on-air as the new hosts of the daily broadcast.
The Wilsons are longtime friends of the ministry, speaking often at FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember® marriage getaways. They are cofounders of Kensington Church—a multicampus church in Michigan that serves a diverse community by intentionally coming alongside those seeking to grow in relationship with God.
Dave and Ann are excited and humbled by this opportunity: “When we got the phone call to consider being the new hosts, it felt like this was a call from God—out of nowhere. We’ve seen the impact of FamilyLife Today and Dennis and Barbara Rainey for decades all around the world. It is an amazing ministry that we’ve benefited from, applauded, and supported through the years. To be asked to be a part of this ministry is so amazing! We don’t deserve it. To God be the glory—and we can’t wait to see what God does in the days ahead!”
Audiences will be introduced to Dave and Ann, alongside Bob and Dennis, on theFamilyLife Today program the week of February 18-22. During the following week, the Wilsons along with the Raineys will be featured in a full series of shows as the final transition is made. In addition to the normal shows, the Rainey’s legacy will be celebrated on-air as a farewell tribute to their many years on the radio.
