This week, Foursquare president Pastor Jack Hayford will begin releasing his regular credentialed minister communiqués as downloadable MP3 audio files. His letters will continue to be printed and mailed to Foursquare credentialed ministers, but the new audio delivery method will provide a convenient option for busy leaders who want to “hear” the heart of Pastor Jack in another media format.

“I am delighted to provide this audio version of my letters for communicating shepherd to shepherd,” says Pastor Jack. “My prayer is that through these audio recordings you will sense even more of the depth of gratefulness I have—and all of us at your central offices—for you, dear leader.”

The MP3 audio files can be downloaded from and played directly from a computer, burned to a CD or loaded onto an iPod or other audio device. They will be read by Pastor Jack.

The first MP3 version of Pastor Jack’s credentialed minister letter is available online at Future audio communiqués will be posted simultaneously with printed mailings. Both versions of Pastor Jack’s letters—audio and written—will be archived side-by-side at under the “News, From the President” section.
