The Voice of Prophecy -- a pioneering radio outreach of the Seventh-day Adventist Church -- will relocate to
Loveland, Colorado sometime in the fall of 2014, ministry officials announced January 7, 2014.The relocation from current headquarters in Simi Valley, California follows the decision by Voice
of Prophecy's parent organization,
the North American Division, to close
and sell the Adventist Media Center.
"We are excited to be re-booting the
ministry in Colorado,” said Shawn Boonstra, speaker/director. “Voice of Prophecy will always be about one thing, and one thing
only—saving lost souls for eternity.
Colorado will offer us a cost-effective, centrally located place to
continue our evangelistic work, and to develop new and innovative outreach
platforms.Technology has advanced in the last 84 years to the point that
we can produce quality media content from almost anywhere. H.M.S. Richards
started his evangelistic ministry in Colorado, and we can’t imagine a better place to relocate this
The Voice of Prophecy plans to develop land adjacent to Campion Academy sometime in the near future.This fall they will move into temporary offices in Loveland. Victor Pires,
manager/treasurer said, “The ministry will have the opportunity to grow and
thrive in this new environment.The

The Voice of Prophecy headquarters has been at the Adventist
Media Center since June 1978, first, until November 1995 in Newbury Park,
California, and subsequently at the present Simi Valley location. From the mid-1930s to 1978, Voice
of Prophecy was based in the city of Glendale, north of downtown Los Angeles.
Adventist evangelist H.M.S. Richards began regular radio broadcasts on
October 19, 1929 on KNX (AM) in Los Angeles. Later Richards presented daily
live broadcasts of The Tabernacle of the Air over KGER in Long
Beach, and live weekly remote broadcasts from there to KMPC (AM) in
Beverly Hills. In January 1937 its footprint expanded over a network of several
stations of the Don Lee Broadcasting System, and the name of the broadcast was
changed to the Voice of Prophecy.
Richards' first coast-to-coast broadcast over 89 stations of the Mutual Broadcasting
System was on Sunday, January 4,
