About CCB

Christian Community Broadcasters is the "Ace" of community broadcasting because of its Advocacy of Low Power, Consulting and FCC filing services, and Equipment to transmit an FM signal.  CCB was founded by John and Henri Broomall in early 2000, shortly after the FCC authorized Low Power FM radio in January 2000, to assist churches, ministries, schools, and other community groups to apply for, construct, and operate LPFM stations.  

has prepared hundreds of FCC filings from basic routine applications and waiver requests to the most complex technical and regulatory pleadings.  CCB's goal is to provide current and accurate information about FCC regulations, equipment, programming, music licensing, and underwriting ("paying the bills").  

Christian Community Broadcasters was formed to provide Christian low power broadcasters with support and advocacy.   John Broomall, Sr., helped found Atlanta's non-commercial Christian television station, WATC-DT 57, nearly 20 years ago, and served as its Underwriting Manager until his retirement in 2012

Non-profit organizations were permitted to file for stations during four "FCC filing windows" from June 2000 to June 2001.  Today, more than 1,200 LPFMs are on-the-air; of these, more than half are operated by churches and Christian ministries.  Formats range from KGOD-LP airing Scripture 24/7 without commentary to stations offering "God's Country," (Christian country music format).  The FCC has almost completed processing nearly 2,800 Applications filed in the October- November 2013 LPFM Filing Window. 

In 2016 and 2017 the FCC decided to assist AM broadcasters by allowing them to acquire or apply for FM translators leading to the crowding of the FM dial in much of the United States, except rural areas.  Already new translators, operating legally, were causing serious interference to LPFM stations, reducing their potential audience, and preventing moves to potentially better transmitter sites.  Unfortunately the situation will get worse.

LPFM advocates, including CCB, would like the FCC to allow Low Power FM stations to increase power to 250 and accept applications for new LPFM stations.  Unfortunately this may never happen and if it did if might only benefit organizations in rural areas where the radio dial is not full.  FM frequencies in urban areas that appear to be empty are either reserved for permittees not on the air yet or serve as "buffer channels" for existing stations.

To assist Christian organizations in the United States, and around the world, apply for, construct, and operate local community radio stations. CCB disseminates a wide range of relevant information and serves as an advocate for low power broadcasters.

Belief Statement:  
There is one God, existing eternally in three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

The Bible is infallible and the only inspired Word of God; given to us for doctrine, correction and instruction in righteousness.

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father where He makes intercession for us, and His personal return in power and glory.

For the salvation of lost sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

The indwelling Holy Spirit enables Christians to live Godly in this present world.

Believers are spiritually united through the Lord Jesus Christ.

All will be resurrected; the saved unto resurrection of life, the unsaved unto the resurrection of eternal condemnation.
