The word "gospel" is derived for the old Anglo-Saxon word meaning “good message” or “good news." Host Preacher believes gospel music is powerful, whether the listener is or is not Christian — that everyone can enjoy listening to gospel because it is uplifting and inspiring, sung with passion and belief from the artist, touching all who hear it in a good and heartfelt way. The aim of Praise Time is to help listeners find what Preacher believes lives in everyone: a good spirit that drives us to be the best we can be. Through the music and words on this show, Preacher hopes you find the one thing he strives for every day, his spirit: "I want to share the good news in gospel music to help inspire you. As I say most nights before I go to sleep, 'We fall down … but we get up.' Through Praise Time with Preacher, we will work together to get up, listen to each other, and bring each other up."
