In the story of God‚Äôs deliverance of the Jews from the hand of Haman, Mordecai motivates Queen Esther in a defining moment by saying, ‚ÄúFor if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father‚Äôs house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?‚ÄĚ (Esther 4:14). Mordecai recognized God had placed Esther in that era of history, that city, and even in her marriage to Xerxes so that he could fulfill His plan. He used Esther as a mediator to spare His people, pointing the way to a much better mediator‚ÄĒJesus Christ‚ÄĒwho would ultimately deliver His people through the cross. Esther‚Äôs willingness to sacrifice her life for her people is a figure of Christ who willingly died for us (Romans 5:6-11).
God continues to providentially place faithful men to proclaim His truth in local communities. Yet, in His goodness, God also allows their messages to be heard around the world through SermonAudio. Below is some of their feedback of how God is blessing these partnerships.
SermonAudio is proud to be a partner with FAME as we co-produce a weekly 'audio journal podcast' called Five Minutes of FAME taken from a first-person perspective by Field Leader, Rodney Davidson. Learn more about how to support the work!

Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!
Tommy Brents, First Baptist Church of Mont Belvieu www.sermonaudio.com/fbcmb"SermonAudio really is the gold standard for uploading, archiving, and accessing sermons. It is easy and quick to use when it comes to uploading sermons. It does exactly what we need it to do. We love it because people in our own church as well people around the world can use it. A lot of people in our congregation use it and we are glad that it is available. Most importantly to me is that I know it is a safe place to recommend people to go to hear good sermons and solid teaching. I really appreciate the doctrinal standard you hold."
Jeremy Durens, First Baptist Church Arnold www.sermonaudio.com/fbcarnold"We point everyone to SermonAudio for our sermons. Your app is great and we constantly are sending people to download it on their devices. I love the analytics you provide each month and the breakdown of downloads and where people are listening is awesome. When we cancelled our app with you, we received several emails from listeners outside our area who wondered what happened so we resumed it. We didn‚Äôt realize how many people follow our sermons with your app. You can‚Äôt really beat the price for all you offer. We love many of your features including the local church finder and Twitter integration!"
David Hart, Deacon, Wattisham Strict Baptist Chapel www.sermonaudio.com/wsbc1763"We‚Äôre thankful to the Lord for the opportunity to share ministry through Sermon Audio and trust that He will continue to bless and increase the work of sharing the inerrant Word of God around the world. May we all be encouraged as we strive to serve Him together."
Pastor Jeremy Gerber, First Baptist Church of Weymouth www.sermonaudio.com/fbcweymouth"We are very happy with the exposure we receive by being on SermonAudio. I really like the local church finder feature that allows people to find churches in their area. It‚Äôs encouraging to see on a monthly basis where people are listening to our sermons around the world. Our people have really appreciated having access to it and listening or re-listening to sermons. Your playback features and sound quality is always excellent. We are happy with everything you are doing!"
Mr. Issac Banks, Dromore Free Presbyterian Church www.sermonaudio.com/dromorefpc"We are more than happy with our relationship with SermonAudio. It is a spectacular opportunity for churches. Our church prays for and is very supportive of our partnership with you. It is a wonderful tool in God‚Äôs armory! We have uploaded over 900 sermons to the site. We also put some select sermons on CD and distribute them to our community--3000 CDs every year! SermonAudio provides us with a local and worldwide outreach! Thank you for making this possible."
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
