About Us

The PraiseFM Story

Brief History – Our ministry begin in Osakis, Minnesota in 1985 on 103.9 KBHL. In 1995 God directed us to focus our format on an invitation to experience Jesus.

In response, we began to include more prayer, scripture and extended times of worship. In 1996, we began to broadcast on KBHZ in Willmar, Minnesota and in 1999, KCGN was added in Milbank, South Dakota. The next door that opened was an opportunity to minister in the Twin Cities on 95.3 FM, and in 2016 we moved from this FM signal to 96.3 FM – HD2. In 2017 the door opened to broadcast across the Middle East and North Africa on a satellite system reaching millions of homes.

Let’s follow Jesus together!
