Thank you and may God continues blessing your ministry."

"I just wanted to let you know that this ministry has been a true blessing to me and my life in Christ. I\'ve enjoyed the teaching of Pastor Steve Mays for a few months (a friend whom attends Cavary Chapel, Torrance encouraged me to go online and listen) and it has truly brought growth to my Christian walk along with my local church. Pastor Steve lays it on the line and tells the truth of the Word of God.

I\'m living in Vancouver, WA and faithfully attend a local church where the Word of God is being taught, but I also listen to Pastor Steve daily. God has truly enriched my life. One can never get enough of the Word.

Thank you for allowing those around the world to receive the gift of God\'s Word and teaching us to obey it as well. May God our Father continue to richly bless Pastor Steve and this ministry."



"I have 2 young sons in my household, and I am very greatful for the studies you provide for someone like myself to be able to record it onto my ipod and have my boys listen later that day or just to have in our library for future use. I praise God for raising men like yourself and you have my prayers always."



"I have been listening to your broadcast on 107.9 in L.A. and it has been helping my spiritual growth tremendously. What could be better than having God\'s Words surrounding me and teaching me AT ALL TIMES!? Thank you for your great work and ministry. God Bless. "


"Pastor Steve, I listen to your sermons every day on my way to work. Listening to your messages helps alleviate the stress of driving from Highland to Rosemead everyday. I love the way you motivate your listeners by your real life examples. Life is very difficult, thank your for shining your light and helping us with your guidance to stay on the right path. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are truly a blessing!!"


"I stumbled on your radio broadcast -"light of the word" by "chance". I have been litterally hooked ever since, and look forward to your daily messages. I am now fanatic about waking up early in the morning to listen to your preaching. I cannot describe to you the pleasure I am getting from listening to your daily broadcast. I am saying this not to flatter you or even to encourage you ( it will be deserved if I did), but I am saying this because I am a devoted muslim. Needless to say I do not believe in the trinity and cannot imagine ever believing in it. My reaction to your preaching, however, is a testomony to the fact that the Holy Quran and the Holy Bible both teach the same thing. I personally seek and accept the truth wherever it is: in the Bible, the Quran or any other divine source. I do not see any difference between my belief and yours except that you call God Jesus, and I call God simply God (Allah in my native language) but we must mean the same God nevertheless. That was my comment. And this is my question to you: Is it possible that Muslims, Christians, and Jews compete for righteousness and uphold the divine commandments that we all share while engaging in distinct rituals of worshipping the same God that we give different name and have different perception of? Or do you thing that the differences are more fundamental and we are condemned to be each other's enemy? Based on my natural reaction to your preaching as well as the preaching of other pastors, I hold the hope that the former is possible. I would like to remind you that my religious training is really minimal. I read some of the Bible, and all of the Quran just recently and I am praying to God to teach me his ways independantly of any kind of authority. I do not subscribe to any rganization or any denomination. I have a direct relation with God. I am not very comfortable with self appointed authorities but I have found many teachers in the path. I have all kind of imperfections and strive to find peace and give peace as best as I know how. May God bless you and your congregation and thank you again for the very uplifting daily messages you preach."

"Your program is such an inspiration to me and I look forward to hearing it each and every morning on my way to work. Can you tell me if there is a radio station up in Northern California that you are on so I can tell my daughter. She and her husband are not saved, I send them recordings from Calvary Chapel Pacific Coast which is where I attend church in hopes that they can learn of our Jesus. Your teaching is so powerful and I learn so much about God and His will for me I pray they too could learn of God's love for them and that they would get saved and raise my grandchildren to know God. I thank you so much for the ministry that you are doing and I pray the Lord will continue to bless you."



"I listen to Light of the Word every morning before I go to work. The lessons are an essential part of my day. Thank you for each and every word."



"I really appreciated the message I heard this evening on KTJC from the Longview/Kelso area. It was aired around 4pm and I believe it was a message in response to Veterans Day."



"Hello, I just wanted to tell you how much of a blessing it is to have a Pastor who explains everything in order to help you understand Gods word. Also, a big Thank You for obeying Gods will and teaching people like me (sinner) that we are all saved by Grace and love. Hear you in the morning!



"I listen on KWAVE to your teaching most every day and sometimes twice a day and sometimes attend. I am blessed so much; it is spiritually mature and you seem to have experienced the Lord in your teachings.



"I just read your testimony page. I was shocked. I listen to you on the radio every day at 6:00am on way to Moreno Valley from my home in Victorville.  I do get a lot out of your teaching ministry and I want to thank you. If someone like you can become such a great teacher and pastor, then someone like me with a lot of anger and guilt and a stumbling idiot of a Christian since 1973 can snap out of it and get with the program. Just wanted you to know, I am encouraged by your teaching, and want to thank you for helping me. "

"I am so grateful for your radio ministry. I have only been a Christian for two years and Steve Mays' radio program is one of the important parts of my growth as a Christian. I wake up every morning to listen to his Bible study on KWVE (6:00am). Thank you for your ministry. I attend New Song Calvary Chapel in Aliso Viejo where Rick Moore is pastor. I understand that Steve Mays is Rick's pastor, so I am doubly grateful. May God continue to bless your ministry, your church, and Pastor Mays. "

 A listener writes:
"Grace be unto you, peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer fo mine for you all making request with joy. For your partnership in gospel from the first day until now; Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart: inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace (Philippians 1:2-7)” 

 A listener from Perris, CA writes:
"Firstly, I thank you and the many faithful servants who aid the ministry of radio broadcasts that I am blessed to hear nightly. I am a mom with 2 small kids and I get my nightly seminary as I clean my kitchen and prepare meals. I can\'t tell you how much I have grown from the real life practicality that Pastor Steve conveys on KWAVE. I am in Perris, Ca and am in awe of how many people in this area are in need of the light we should be shining. Thanks for inspiring us to shine as we should. I also ask that you pray for God\'s will in our home sale and purchase of a new one in OR. We are following God's direction to live below our means and pray that we continue to receive clear guidance as we follow His promptings. I pray that we build family ties in our new home where we don't know anyone. May we always be still enough to hear His voice and courageous enough to WALK with Him.”

"Thank you so much for your ministry. Like yourself in your youth, I am not the typical person. I am a Christian, but have fallen away and am really working hard to get back to where i was. Your ministry is very inspiring to me in this tough place that I am in right now, and I look forward to growing more. I would please like to order "A Life Out Of Control." Thank you Pastor Steve. - Holland
