Pastor Josh has had a love for radio since he was a youngster. His inspiration came from the times he spent watching his grandfather in radio studios back in Wisconsin. If you have been a Proclaim FM listener for any amount of time, you know Pastor Josh’s voice as he has filled in for our on-air DJ’s over the last couple of years. Needless to say, PJ knows his way around the studio and he has a gift that just keeps on giving…. The gift to gab is a multi-generation talent that has been passed down through the family line!
When not hanging out around the Proclaim FM studios, Pastor Josh leads a network of churches that he has helped to plant throughout Ohio, specifically in the rural portions of the state. He is also on the state leadership team for the Assemblies of God, where he oversees 20+ churches and 80+ credential holders in NW Ohio.
Pastor Josh and his wife Stacey met and were married while at Bible College and have 3 teenagers that keep them busy. The family homestead, Pleasant Acres, allows them the opportunity to raise chickens and produce maple syrup from the trees on their property. In the summer months, PJ and Stacey add another member to their family… Harvey the RV… 33ft long and he takes the family on getaways to relax and refresh!
Be sure to tune in to PJ in the Midday, 12-3pm, Monday through Friday, for all of the music you love and the stories that will cause you to laugh or to say, “Come Again?” Needless to say, you don’t want to miss out!

Derek holds a Bachelors Degree from the University of Toledo and has lived in the area for the past 26yrs. Derek worked several years as both the Event Planner and Managed the Student Health and Activites Center at Owens Community College. Derek has been blessed with being a part of events such as President Bushes visit to the area and the National Guard Coming Home Ceremony. Growing up as a child he has always had a fascination of seeing how things work. To much of his parents dismay when something broke around the house instead of getting a shiny new appliance he would tear it apart and find the component that needed to be fixed. With this said he decided to test the waters in the Maintenance Field mid way through his career. Derek then decided to take a job in Maintenance Field at Berner Trucking and was the Assistant to the Director of Maintenance at Bio-Fit Engineered Products. When Derek is not working he enjoys spending time going to church, being with his family and friends, various outdoor activities, volunteering in the community and old historical sports cars.

Although born and raised in Northwest Ohio, Rebecca experienced the life changing transformation of God in her life in Michigan over 25 years ago as she entered a church that God would use to change her life. An Army Veteran, along with wife and mother of three (Hannah, Isaac, and Daniela), Rebecca has dedicated her life to raising her family while serving as a pastor’s wife for 11 years, worship leader, and mentor. As time has passed, and the children entering adulthood, Rebecca knew God had more for her, something different. He led her to Proclaim FM where she has planted roots, poured her heart into this ministry, and has witnessed the amazing power of God to not only meet the desires of the heart, but to exceed them. Rebecca truly believes Psalm 37:4 which reads: “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” He has shown that in her life time and time again! Yes, she will admit to difficult times and many trial and oppositions along the way, but God has been merciful and faithful!
What does Rebecca like to do relax? She will certainly say a good cup of coffee and her porch swing would be rated highest on her list! She enjoys a good book, a good movie, good conversation, and the company of her family as well. Oh, and MUSIC…she LOVES music!! Rebecca will tell you almost every song is her favorite! You may find this out if you listen to her morning show. With a genuine love for people and a good sense of humor (so she thinks), Rebecca’s mission is to be an encourager and servant to her community on whatever platform God provides for the season. This season, God has chosen Proclaim FM as the platform. What does the future hold for Rebecca? She would answer simply, “Only God knows and I trust He has my best interest in mind!”
Robin was raised in an Irish Catholic home in Rhode Island. One of 5 children, her early years were devoted to the theater world and “socializing”, one amazing Friday night during the Jesus movement days, she got slam dunk born again. Robin entrenched herself in the Word of God and was immediately drawn to evangelism from her conversion. She began sharing the Gospel with the patrons at her father’ s pizza place (yes, Irish pizza). Next thing she knew, a radio gig opened up and she learned pretty quickly that she had a gift to communicate the Gospel. That is 30 something years ago and she hasn’t skipped a beat since then. Her radio career has been afternoon drive, first at WARV in RI, then she had the longest running afternoon drive show in the Detroit market on WMUZ. Now, the Lord has directed her path to Proclaim FM and she couldn’t be more grateful to daily be a witness to God’s love. Radio has become a huge platform from which Robin uses her theatrical abilities and sincerity to further the Kingdom of heaven. Day in and day out, she oozes with love for Jesus and has an uncanny ability to really encourage the listener to get close to God.
