With sincerest appreciation for who he is and what he’s done, KAMB announces the retirement of its long-time General Manager, Tim Land. His career at KAMB spans 41 years, beginning as a volunteer and assisting the Program Director with clerical duties.
From Volunteer to GM
“Prior to working at KAMB, I served as an Associate Pastor of Youth and Christian Education at a local church,” Tim recalls. I had experience in church ministry and was a Biblical and Theological studies major in college and obtained a Master’s Degree in Christian Education, but had no training in business management or in radio. That would change as Tim moved from volunteering to working overnight part-time. Within months, he was hired full-time as Operations Director, and eventually moved to Program Director. By 1994, he was promoted to General Manager where he has served ever since.
Balancing Ministry with Business
Tim commented, “I’ve learned a great deal about the financial side of ministry and running a tax-exempt non-profit ministry. Early on I knew that my gifts and talents were best utilized in administration and management. Along the way, God enabled me to learn how to balance the dynamic tension of leading a parachurch organization that is both a ministry and a business at the same time; one that is subject to strict FCC and IRS regulations as well as being faithful to follow biblical principles in guiding this ministry.” Tim added,
“KAMB has been a great place to serve the Lord. We have been blessed over the years with many wonderful and gifted people who have worked here. Some of our current Staff have served here for several years as well, and we are grateful for the close relationships that our team enjoys.”
His final day in the office is June 30, 2023. Please join KAMB in expressing our thanks to God for Tim’s commitment and service over these past four decades.
55 years young, KAMB’s best days are yet ahead. That’s the belief of retiring General Manager, Tim Land. He announced his plans for retirement to the Board of Directors and Staff last month, with the official announcement coming today. Tim has been at KAMB for 41 years, with the last 29 years serving as General Manager.
The Blessings of Life Impacting Ministry
Reflecting on his time at KAMB, “One of the greatest blessings of serving here is hearing the stories of how listeners’ lives have been impacted through the music and programming of Celebration Radio; hearing how people have come to the Lord, hearing how God has used this daily ministry to encourage people to grow in their walk of faith with Him has been incredible!”
KAMB’s Board Chair, Christopher Grant, commented,
“Tim has been a valuable part of KAMB/Celebration Radio. His commitment to the Lord, the listener, and the Staff have blessed this ministry greatly. The team is grateful for his leadership and looks forward to what the Lord has for him in the next season of his journey.”
Looking forward to what God can do through You
That next season for Tim includes work around home, travel, family, and serving at his church. To the listening family of KAMB, Tim remarked,
“Paul’s exhortation in Colossians 3:1-4 communicates how important it is for us as believers to intentionally “set our hearts and minds on the Lord” and live lives that bring glory to God. Let me encourage you to use KAMB as a wonderfully helpful resource to keep your daily focus on Jesus. Explore the celebrationradio.com website for practical resources that are available from the various ministries that you hear every day on KAMB. Look for and take each opportunity God gives you to tell others about this ministry. It’s a great way to be an effective witness for Him by telling others about the music and programming we share. God can use you to help many others come to know Jesus personally and be encouraged to follow Him faithfully by you simply inviting them to listen, to “taste and see” what the Lord has to offer.”
Tim’s last day in the office is June 30, 2023. As for KAMB after Tim’s retirement, Grant went on to say,
“KAMB/Celebration Radio continues to inspire people to know Jesus personally and challenge them to follow Him faithfully through the creative use of interactive media. With Tim’s steady leadership we have seen opportunities to expand our reach and impact. It is exciting to consider the future of KAMB as the Lord leads. I am pleased to say, ‘Stay tuned’.”
