Neil Hopper

President - Co-Host of Morning Show

Neil usually starts his days at 6am, everyday, greeting thousands of listeners by presenting an encouraging and uplifting dialogue format for the early risers.  Neil started with the ministry in 1989 while it was still in its infancy stages. In those days, Neil recalls how the music had to be lined up simultaneously using a turntable and a CD player, since 45’s were quickly fading into history with the inception of CD’s. Neil’s on-air format has developed over the years while listening to other announcers and gaining new idea’s that have been included in the morning programming.



Station Manager - Afternoon Co-Host

Rarely does Howard not know the title or artist name of those aired at the ministry.  Howard’s ear for music started a long time ago, even when he was unaware his future included his current position at The Message For You. When asked, “What prepared you for your present?” Howard’s quick response is, “Praising God through circumstances and singing through the pain.” The early days of learning how to trust God for himself started when Howard ventured out on his own as a young adult.


Shannon TUTEN

Director of Partner Relations & Accounting

I consider myself a very blessed woman.  My greatest gift in life is my beautiful family.  I began my journey at this ministry in May of 1992 taking care of the daily financial responsibilities.  I have had the privilege of taking care of the donations that have been faithfully given by great partners over many years.  In this journey, I have met some amazing people that have become like family.  God has shown Himself faithful through this ministry and this has impacted me in such a powerful way through it all.  I am excited about what God will accomplish through His ministry.



Director of Finance - Afternoon Co-Host

A South Florida transplant, Patrick has been with Immanuel Broadcasting since 2002. With a 12yr background in Finance, one of the last things that he thought he would be doing when he “grew up” was working at a Radio Station. The only one he’d ever been in was this one. Immanuel Broadcasting was a part of his life long before he became an employee. He was initially hired to help prepare the Budgets and oversee the Underwriting Department. Since that time, like everyone else, he has also transitioned behind the microphone and you can hear him every afternoon from 3-6 on your drive home!

Aside from being a Husband to Lisa, Dad to Taylor, Brooklyn and Caleb, working at The Message and being a Pastor, Patrick has a really boring life!


JL Jones

Community Relations - Co-Host of Morning Show

In 2013, I was going to college and like many other people in their 20’s, I had no idea what I was doing, but it was better than nothing. I ended up meeting the love of my life in one of my class. We got married 10 weeks later! While still figuring out the ups and downs of marriage, we began going to church together on a consistent basis. After rededicating my life to Christ in 2016, I felt a calling towards ministry. I really assumed that God wanted me to volunteer at my church at a high capacity. I became a small group leader for the youth ministry. My husband and I had the opportunity to be interim youth leaders for the summer and I really started to love being in ministry. Fast forward to 2017, after a lot of prayer, an opportunity opened up at the local radio station. Since becoming a part of this radio family, I’ve seen God move in my marriage and I’ve grown so much deeper with the Lord. I’ve even had the opportunity to volunteer at other local ministries such as Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I’m so incredibly thankful for this opportunity and can not wait to see what God has in store for my family, as well as this ministry.
