"We are deeply encouraged by the growth of Urban Praise and the impact it is having around the world for Christ," said Collin Lambert, vice president of Moody Radio. "Moody's vision is to innovate and harness new technology to bring God's Word across the globe, cultures and generations, and this is exactly what Urban Praise is doing for urban audiences."
