Here’s what our impact partners have to say:

“Customers who come to us for a vehicle purchase or service are eager to point out that the reason they come to us and are comfortable doing business with us is because Schepel supports and underwrites Christian radio at Shine.FM.” Tom Van Prooyen Vice President Schepel Buick, GMC, Hummer, Cadillac “As a life-long Christian, my faith and faith communities have always shaped my relationships and enabled me to reach out to others. I knew from day one in this business that if I was to build a loyal, lifetime clientele, I needed to reach out to my faithful Christian brothers and sisters. Shine.FM has afforded me the opportunity to reach the Christian community in a variety of ways.” Ken Sidlowski American Family Insurance
