What’s Up On
How It works
The Word on the Hill, is our Free community calendar. We would like to help your church, organization, school, or ministry get the word out if you have an upcoming community event. Send us the information to on our contact page, and try to get it to us a couple of weeks in advance so we can get you on the Word on The Hill.
Positive Hits With a pulse
Facing many obstacles, God faithfully opened the door for The Hill to become a reality and we began broadcasting in March 1995. We have witnessed God's work through the positive message in the music.
