One of the more dramatic church activities of this period was the construction of Radio Chapel by Burroughs A. Waltrip in 1937 and 1938, connecting services in the building with a daily KGLO broadcast.
The evangelist was beset with financial difficulties and on May 16, 1939, filed a petition for receivership. The following December the court approved the purchase of the chapel by the Rev. Carl J. Sentman, who since has expanded the program and sponsored missionaries in foreign fields.
