Throughout his educational and vocational experiences, Gene Getz has specialized in communications. He established the first audio/visual center that existed on a Bible college campus while teaching at Moody Bible Institute. When he came to Dallas Theological Seminary to teach in the Christian Education Department in 1968, he was also charged with setting up and developing an up-to-date media center for use at the graduate level.
Interspersed throughout Gene's ministry experiences, he has also been involved in a variety of radio experiences. While in Billings, Montana, he sang in a radio quartet on a half hour daily program sponsored by the Montana Gospel Crusade and directed and produced a 15 minute weekly youth program. While directing the Moody Evening School in Chicago, he created and hosted a 30-minute weekly program called Evening School Echoes and launched an evening program called Class In Session,a 60-minute live broadcast from a Moody Evening School classroom designed to allow students in the radio audience to participate. He was also the first professor at Moody Bible Institute to bring students into the studio to conduct interactive classes on WMBI's Radio School of the Bible.
In 1989, he has launched a 15-minute weekday program called Renewal. The format consists of brief messages, interviews, discussions and pre-recorded telephone responses.
