The Problem: The problem of this study is to determine i£ it is possible to mediate the leadership of corporate worship by means of a radio broadcast. The Protestant churches in the Philippines are faced with a major problem in the form of a shortage of trained ministers. Such a shortage has resulted in the withering away of membership in the local communities and a loss of some congregations to the small sect groups which have come into the Phi1ippinea in large numbers since the end of World War II. The Protestant churches related to the Phi1ippine Federation of Christian Churches have their own religious, educational, non-commercial radio station, Station DYCR.
