For Stations

It’s not easy helping teens navigate the struggles they face each day. And because of that, parents across the country are desperately searching for an answer.

We offer a sound solution.

Help bring help and hope to moms and dads in your community with two innovative programs from Mark Gregston. Parenting Today’s Teens is available as a 25-minute weekend program and a 1-minute daily feature.

Mark Gregston is the founder and executive director of Heartlight Ministries, a residential program for teens in Longview, Texas. For over thirty years, Mark has helped parents and teens navigate the turbulent teen years, a mission that now broadcasts nationwide.

Parenting Today’s Teens programs are specifically produced to help parents and grandparents with children 10 years and older. They are not promotional in nature and there is no fundraising. As such, Parenting Today’s Teens is offered as a public service to radio stations and their listeners. We invite you to find local sponsors for either program.

25-Minute Weekend Format

Together, Mark Gregston and Wayne Shepherd discuss contemporary issues confronting families and offer biblical solutions. Programs include compelling interviews with experts on family issues as well as conversations with parents and teens on their problem-solving efforts.

1-Minute Daily Format

Mark Gregston gives a daily and digestible parenting tip for moms and dads. The feature is produced with two background music bed options—inspirational or contemporary—and can be run in a fixed time slot or ROS, Monday through Friday.

Here’s How to Sign Up

Both Parenting Today’s Teens programs are available via Amb-OS and FTP download. To sign up, contact Jessica Suggs at Roger Kemp and Company at (818) 865-0180 or email,
