Church's 'Devotions' goes global with app

From staff reports

Portland's First Radio Parish Church of America, which broadcasts "Daily Devotions" each morning, will have an even wider audience with its own channel on "Call on Faith."

Through Odyssey Network's new video application, FRPCA and "Daily Devotions" will be available around the world on smartphones, on Sprint-enabled videophones and on iPads.

"Call on Faith" is the first app of its kind in the world, the church says. The Rev. Peter Panagore, who has pioneered FRPCA's media outreach with the church's board of trustees, is enthused about its prospects.

From its beginnings in 1926 at the Eastland Hotel in Portland, FRPCA now has the potential to reach a national and international audience.
