TWU launches new online radio station

Worship Lab Radio began broadcasting in early September

North America’s first university-based online Christian radio station has launched in Langley.

On Sept. 2, Worship Lab Radio began broadcasting at Trinity Western University with campus news and information for students moving into campus residences. Regular broadcasting began Sept. 3.

According to a press release, the free app “offers a new outlet for indie worship artists and helps worship leaders across North American connect with emerging artists.”

“We are very excited to launch Worship Lab Radio,” said Scott Fehrenbacher, senior vice president of external relations for TWU.

“As a pioneer in providing a voice for emerging worship artists, we believe the church will benefit by exploring paths for new worship. In addition, Worship Lab Radio will be an integral tool for those students who travel to Trinity Western University to study in the University’s new Worship Arts program.”

Worship Lab Radio provides an opportunity for the university’s Worship Arts students to get their music played along with other indie artists.

“Worship Lab Radio will allow listeners to ‘imagine tomorrow’s worship’ by hearing it today. We expect this new station to be a welcome addition for all Christian music students, artists, churches, worship leaders and listeners of contemporary Christian music,” said Fehrenbacher.
