WPRZ's mission is reflected in on-air programming designed to encourage listeners with:

• A live weekly radio show for 18-35 year olds struggling with addiction, suicidal thoughts, and abuse. Features local musical guests and Christian hip hop artists like Lecrae.
• A weekly radio show for outdoorsman with original country music by Steve Conover.
• A daily line-up of Christian contemporary, country and bluegrass music with live studio hosts.
• Teaching from nationally recognized teachers.
• Syndicated programming to help parents and families flourish.
• Fun, family programs based in radio drama.
• Holiday programming including concerts and comedy shows.
• Free public service announcements to keep listeners informed about community activities and raise awareness of non-profit organizations in the region.
• Hourly, national news reports.
• Local weather reports.
• Support for businesses, organizations and loved ones through WPRZ sponsorships.

Praise Communications provides a live streaming service at WPRZ.org so that people all around the world can listen to WPRZ. While on-air programming is a main thrust of the station's vision, there are other ways that WPRZ connects to and collaborates with the community.

Outside the studio, WPRZ 88.1 volunteers are in the community participating in community events every month. In fact, WPRZ 88.1 is expanding its volunteer team to be able to cover more territory and be a part of more events. Not just in Culpeper, but all over the region from Manassas to Charlottesville and Luray to Fredericksburg. This past year, for example, WPRZ helped honor veterans, raised awareness for local organizations, supported local police departments and collected food donations. The WPRZ event calendar is shared to social media and wprz.org so listeners everywhere are kept informed about local events.

Beyond the inspiring content produced on-air by WPRZ 88.1, the station's vision extends to creating a future mobile application with downloadable podcasts, a "fascinating trip" series to interesting locations, a concert and speaker series, a summer camp experience for kids and developing new radio shows like WPRZ IS CONCERNED!
Here are some notes and letters we have recently received from our listeners:

We support WPRZ financially because we feel that Christian radio is a vital part of our community and a powerful tool to spread the Gospel. We pray that WPRZ is able to continue to stay on the airwaves and be used by God to spread His love until He returns. A listener from Culpeper

First of all, thank you for your commitment to the community you serve. I start my weekday mornings with Kurt Goff Live and Michael Youssef. I can't think of a better way to start the day. I finish my week with Friday afternoon bluegrass. So awesome. Thank You, Bob and Pam

It is such a blessing to tune in to WPRZ daily. You minister God's Word and provide a constant source of strength and encouragement! Whenever the station has experienced a brief interruption we've been extremely saddened. We cannot imagine the void that would be there if this station was discontinued. You all bless us daily and now it's our chance to bless and encourage you. We gladly join your efforts and send our gift. Anonymous from Madison

I wake up to WPRZ in the morning and love to listen to James MacDonald. I listen on my way into work and to Janet Parshall on my way home. I thank you that you play wonderful praise music, and you don't wear out the same songs over and over again like other stations. Diane from Culpeper

Steve and Sally, Thank you for bringing Christian radio to Culpeper. The programs uplift and bless us. May God bless and multiply your efforts! Bruce and Loretta

We found your station a couple of months ago when we moved to Barboursville. We are praying for this ministry and for the Lord to bless you with the needs to support this ministry. We are also sending a donation. Thank you, John and Wendy

Thank you so much for WPRZ . We are making this donation because we love WPRZ, but also because GOD loves WPRZ. We love the music, programs and most of all the Bible readings. Your friends in Christ Tommy and Brenda

We keep WPRZ on 24/7 in our kitchen and in our kids rooms. We listen to the teachings as a family in the morning, and the kids listen to the shows and music at night. We thank God for WPRZ, and fully believe in radio ministry. Thank you - everyone who works and volunteers at WPRZ for all you do for His Glory every day. A couple from Spotsylvania

I listen to WPRZ all the time because it is a great way to learn what is in the Bible and the music that is played. The station has excellent pastors who preach the Word and inspirational and uplifting music,. I have learned the words to so many of the praise and worship songs by singing along with the radio. WPRZ has such a good variety of programs and no commercials. I support the station financially because I appreciate all it blesses me with, and I would be lost without it. Also, everyone at WPRZ is like family to me! A listener from Locust Grove

When times get tough, they are always ready to pray for you. A listener from Culpeper
