Storly and Kate Michel
Like many people in the city of Cap Haitien, northern Haiti, Rev. Storly Michel grew up listening to Radio 4VEH. He knew when it was time to go to school when a particular radio program ended.
Years later in 1996, as a pastor and theologian, Storly began presenting a radio program for young people at Radio 4VEH. He now serves as station director for a second time. He also presents several programs, including daily Bible reading and a Sunday morning devotional, and he is the voice of the audio New Testament on Resounding Hope solar radios/audio players.
Storly’s radio ministry also includes the translation, recording, and production of the well-known J. Vernon McGee Thru The Bible study series into Haitian Creole in a daily 30-minute program that is broadcast across Haiti.
Storly has a diploma in computer science, a bachelor’s in theology from North Haiti Christian University (Limbe, Haiti), and a master’s in communications from Oxford Centre for Mission Studies (Oxford, England). It was in this master’s class in 2002 that he met his future wife, Kate.
Kate, from South Wales, joined the Radio 4VEH staff in 2008 as Marketing & Communications director after five years alongside Storly at the radio station in Cap Haitien. She’s a communications professional, with a bachelor’s in international business and a master’s in communication. Kate served for more than a decade with an international Christian relief and development organization, including several years as a journalist and photographer in West Africa and in Haiti. Kate has a unique perspective on Radio 4VEH’s work, speaking with authority about the impact of Radio 4VEH in the lives of listeners.
Kate is a key leader of the Resounding Hope solar radios initiative. Through stories, photos, speaking engagements, newsletters, websites, social media, and more, she leads fundraising efforts, shares prayer requests and praises, and reports back to supporters on how people are being drawn to Jesus through radio.
After serving in Storly’s home country of Haiti, Storly and Kate Michel and their two daughters, Hannah (born 2006) and Esther (born 2007), are based near OMS World Headquarters in Indiana, USA (with trips to Haiti) where they are providing leadership for Radio 4VEH and engaging supporters with Radio 4VEH ministry.
