Passionate About Inspiring Others
Journalists Advancing Ministry (JAM)
is a multimedia podcast about media professionals called to Kingdom work.
We explore their paths to ministry from media, and ask the question:
Are journalists particularly suited for this?
From the founder of Positively Joy Ministries and Podcast
Hello! I’m Yvette Babs Walker, a former full-time reporter, and editor, current educator and podcaster.
If you’re here, you may already know that I’m the host of a faith-based podcast and ministry, Positively Joy.
I have come from sleep-walking through my faith and becoming reawakened in my relationship with Jesus Christ.
As a long-time journalist, I believed I could not wear that part of myself openly because as journalists, we are supposed to be objective. No agendas. In situations where I held the reins of the front page at two major metro dailies. I strived to make sure readers and colleagues couldn't accuse me of being biased.
When I came to Oklahoma I still felt that way, even though this buckle of the Bible Belt city seemed to allow full-blown believers in newsrooms. Now in full-time academia, I am exploring this with other journalists who have moved into ministry, either full-time or part-time.
