The Haven of Rest — Early Footage

Year End Gift to Haven, Hope to a Weary WorldMake Your Year End Gift to Haven

Haven Ministries is committed to shining the light of Christ with a weary world through daily Christ-focused programs, biblical devotions, and life-giving resources. But this couldn’t happen without the loving support of our listeners and readers — people who, like you, have been impacted by this work.

Today, we are asking friends of Haven Ministries to help us fulfill this mission by making a year end gift by midnight December 31. Will you give now to help us finish strong?

Through your support and desire to make Christ known, we can help even more people experience Jesus — many for the very first time. As we approach the end of the year, will you partner with Haven Ministries to provide vital hope for weary souls?

If you recognize the urgency to share Christ to this weary world … please give now.

    Mom& Dad were saved in an old time REVIVAL SERVICE/western PA. They listened to a Pittsburgh radio station where they heard PERCY CRAWFORD of Pine Brook Melodies. Saturday pancakes for breakfast meant we 4 kids would sit @ listen as we ate… our parents knew how to make God’s Word & godly men more appealing.

  • This was so inspiring! I remember hearing this on the radio when I was a little girl! Thank you for posting this!

    I am pretty sure I remember hearing my grandmother tune into the Good Ship Grace and I believe she received The Log as well. I have listened to Haven Today since 2000 or so and so appreciate the varied musicians and guests that Charles Morris books for the program. I have been blessed by listening to Haven and appreciate its history of continuing to tell the world “History” it truly is all about Jesus! Thank you !

    I am a regular Haven listener since about the age of 8. The ringing of the bells brought such peace to my little heart as I looked out from my bedroom window to see fireflies above the ripening corn in the fields. I think I fell asleep many nights listening to Haven of Rest. Through my life, I have learned about the safe haven of wisdom, trust,and obedience to a Savior that has left nothing undone for us to know him.
    The ‘ship’s’ ropes continue to hold fast and has created a thread of faith from my Grandparents, to parents, to me and now to my children and their children. Thank you team for sharing the talents given you to bring souls to Christ Jesus

    I too grew up with the sounds of the Haven of Resr broadcast filling our home with all eight of us children listening in front of the floor length wooden radio while getting ready for church on Sunday mornings. Our father pastored a small church out in the state of Montana. What a legacy it has been to thousands of people, especially as the world turns its face away from God. as a result of this influence, our family has one son, two son-in-law‘s, one grandson and three nephews serving the Lord as full-time pastors across our nation. Thank you for this incredible blessing, God gave us. May you continue to send forth the good news of Jesus’s redemption for all.
    “ For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and your labor of love, in that, ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. Hebrews 6:10
