Former Professor Named Director of Voice of Prophecy

Lainey S. Cronk, September 23, 2008

Former Pacific Union College communication professor Fred Kinsey has been named the new speaker/director of the Voice of Prophecy (VOP), an Adventist radio, Bible school, and evangelistic ministry with its international headquarters at the Adventist Media Center in Simi Valley, California.

"[Kinsey] was a very popular and influential teacher at PUC… over many years," says PUC president Richard Osborn. Kinsey's strong background in both pastoral ministry and the communication field have served him well as the assistant to the president for communication in the North American Division, a role he will continue to hold.

Kinsey succeeds E. Lonnie Melashenko, who spent 17 years in the role. "I'm glad that Fred Kinsey is able to help give voice to the message of the Voice of Prophecy," said Don C. Schneider, chairman of the VOP Board of Trustees and president of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, in a VOP press release. "Fred is a veteran of pastoral ministry as well as communications, and he lives to share God's love with people, which is exactly the aim of every VOP broadcast."

"I'm honored to follow the broadcasting pioneers who established and grew the VOP over the years, H.M.S. Richards, Sr. and his son, Harold, as well as Lonnie Melashenko," Kinsey said in the release. "There is a world that needs this message, and I look to God for His help in sharing it."
