|When I was a kid:

Ten Questions with Denny Mills:
1. When did you join KCRN?
I have wanted to be involved in Christian Broadcast Radio since the time I came to know Jesus as my Savior and had been praying for the opportunity. In 2000, the Lord answered that prayer through Mark Mohr. I came on as a novice, and Mark has been my mentor since then. I have been a volunteer since that time and am still learning as a part time volunteer.
2. What do you do here?
I assist in maintaining broadcast equipment and pretty much work as Mark's helper and endeavor to do whatever he assigns me. I help maintain the AM and FM transmitters, preventive maintenance, and troubleshooting.
3. Where else have you done similar work?
In th USAF. I maintained communications equipment, listed as long haul radio, microwave systems, etc. Currently our family operates consumer electronics service and repair facilities in San Angelo and Midland, Texas.
4. Where did you go to school?
Majority of my schooling was through the military and I was able to get my license and certification because of that training. I have taken courses through the Cleveland Institute of Electronics including Broadcast Engineering.
5. Describe your family.
I am blessed with a wonderful family. My wife, Kay, and I have been married for 47 years. We have three sons and six grandchildren. The Lord has blessed us and we are very thankful.
6. What do you enjoy most about working here?
I enjoy working at KCRN and being a part of a family that works together to reach people for Christ through the media of Christian Radio. I count it an honor and a priviledge to be a part of this ministry.
7. Why are you working in this ministry rather than the for-profit/secular world?
The work that the Lord has given me belongs to Him. I am in His ministry because all is unto the Lord.
8. Share a funny story about working here.
Nothing jumps out as I am writing this. I may create funny stories and I don't know it.
9. What is the best memory or proudest accomplishment from your time here?
It is always being a part of the solution when we are able to get a problem fixed. I count it as a blessing to know that the Lord is using us together to find solutions to problems we encounter. Repairing the FM transmitter several years ago, working through the night to get us back on the air. One of my most interesting moments was watching the lowering of the FM antennas and having them reinstalled. The tower climbers are unique individuals and the equipment and teamwork to do such hazardous work was one of my most interesting memories.
10. What do you hope to accomplish here?
I would like to become more effective in helping get the gospel out through Christian Radio. Perhaps go on the mission field to help other Christian Stations in other locations or countries.
