About Us Vision To empower and mentor young adult leaders in the Body of Christ by providing holistic ministry in line with their culture, by enlisting technology, music, the Internet and multimedia tools to meet spiritual and social needs, so that they'll be motivated to share their love and enthusiasm ... See more m for Christ among other members of their generation. Mission To demolish the strongholds & fallacies of this generation that God is irrelevant, non-existent or unconcerned and that modern-day Christianity is boring, unreasonable or unrewarding by providing holistic ministry via multimedia technology. History Altared Lives began as "The Altared Lives Radio Broadcast" on WWAB radio in Lakeland, FL in 1992. The show ran weekly from 1992-1999, with a 2-year break from 1995-1997. At that time, the broadcast included teaching around a theme, and the selection of music matched the topic or theme. It was a unique program for its time, as the broadcast attracted listeners from age 5 to 65 -- quite a different demographic from what one would expect for the type of music being featured: artists such as Mike-E, ETW, Transformation Crusade, P.I.D., T-Bone, and Stephen Wiley (all gospel rap artists) and funky contemporary Gospel tracks like "It Could've Been Me" by John P. Kee, "God's Personality" by Anointed, "Love Is Not a 4 Letter Word" by Scott Blackwell, and "One Step After Another" by Commissioned (Fred Hammond's original group). Other contemporary Gospel artists who were featured on the Altared Lives Radio Broadcast included Be Be & Ce Ce Winans, Dennis Austin, Nu Joi, Angie & Debbie, Bernard Wright, the Winans, and Angelo & Veronica. Altared Lives "dot com" began in 1999 after the local broadcast ceased. But there was no radio station associated with the web site in 1999. It wasn't until Resurrection Day Weekend 2002 that "Altared Lives Radio," or "ALR" was birthed online, via the Live365.com network of stations. Altared Lives Radio began playing urban Gospel music primarily. Established artists such as Kirk Franklin, Dawkins & Dawkins, Mary Mary, Ben Tankard, John P. Kee, Kenoly Brothers, Deitrick Haddon, and Papa San were heard regularly on the station. Unsigned or relatively new artists such as Nu Joi, Pam & Dodi, Ramiyah, Erick Mathews, Damita, Out of Eden, and Trin-i-tee 5:7 were spinned with a holy fervor when ALR first began webcasting. When the Altared Lives "dot org" web site was launched in 2003 following the incorporation of Altared Lives Ministries, Inc., "Altared Lives Radio" became fully identified with the Altared Lives Ministries web site. At that time, the ministry's founder, Donna McCormick, felt led of God to convert the station's format to 95% Christian hip hop with 5% Rhythm-n-Gospel interspersed in the playlist. And, in 2005, ALR launched out independently from the Live365.com radio network and remains independent today.
