It began as The Haven of Rest, a radio program that emerged from the redemptive story of a well-known Los Angeles radio personality in the early 1930’s. After destroying a successful career in radio, hitting rock bottom, and accepting Christ as his Savior, Paul Myers created The Haven of Rest which brought thousands to faith in Christ.
A few thousand miles across the country and a few decades later, a young girl named Carol and her family listened to The Haven of Rest on WMBI in Chicago. Young Carol had no idea where it was recorded; but that didn’t matter. She eagerly anticipated each broadcast with its endearing messages of love, redemption, and hope.
Fast forward a few decades. Dr. Carol Taylor, President of Vanguard University is listening to HAVEN Today on her iPod, as she often does in the morning as she gets ready for work. One day, she meets a man named Charles Morris, Speaker and President of Haven Ministries. When he finds out she is President Taylor of Vanguard University, he asks her if she might be interested in broadcasting from Vanguard University. You see, there is another connection between Haven and Vanguard. Three of the original members of the quartet are Vanguard (then Southern California Bible School) alumni!
Be sure to listen to HAVEN Today on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, for this exclusive interview with President Carol Taylor, and on Feb 20, 2013 to hear Vanguard students – SGA President Allison Tash, Jonathan Murillo, Marina Plott, Sara Gonzales, and Thomas Sutton – address the challenges of being a college student and a Christian in today’s world, the value of a Christian education, and what God means to them.
