About

I enjoy helping leaders and Christian organizations harness the power of communication technology for kingdom service.

Inspired by a discussion in 1996 with the late Dr. E. Brandt Gustavson (former President of NRB) – and a passion to see Christian media retain its strength – I started Capstone Alliance to focus on the rapidly changing communications landscape.

In 2011, Capstone eMedia Group formed a partnership to start Glorystone.tv, a cloud services and content marketing company. The company developed the “eStation“, the first video and audio platform built for Internet broadcasting and ministry. It also started the Glorystone Network, a content syndication platform that features more than one hundred video/audio publishers, including a “who’s who” of Christian radio programs.

With ready-roll-technology and content, the eStation app gives Christian organizations the incredible opportunity to use digital audio/video media to bring the gospel 24/7 to those who don’t know Christ.

As an online missionary with Global Media Outreach, I’m learning how the Internet and emerging technologies are affecting the way evangelism, discipleship and building the church is done. This is my personal blog of these experiences. I write about media, church communications and Internet evangelism. A key theme in the mix is innovation through partnership and technology. On average, I post 1-2 times per week.

It would be an honor to have you subscribe to my RSS feed for blog updates. For me, Christian media is about impacting communities and the world for Christ. My goal is to be a catalyst for helping you find breakthrough ideas to get that job done successfully in the Digital Age.

MY BIOGRAPHY

I’ve been around broadcasting and media most of my life. My Dad (Wayne Marcy), helped start KHCB Houston, TX in the early 1960’s. He gave me my first job in radio, as an engineer’s apprentice for KBRZ-KLJT Freeport-Lake Jackson, TX, at age 16. I worked as DJ, Music Director, Program Director and Operations Manager…programming rock, pop and country stations throughout southwest Texas.

Encouraged to consider Christian media, I began my career in religious broadcasting as General Sales Manager at KGOL Houston, TX. Accepted my first General Manager position at KRDS Phoenix, AZ, one of the few full-time commercial CCM stations, at the time. Joined Salem Communications, and served for nearly twenty years as General Manager of ten stations, specializing in turnaround strategies and growth management. Managed Salem stations in Santa Barbara, CA, Oxnard-Ventura, CA, Boston, MA, Houston, TX and Louisville, KY.

In Louisville, our team earned recognition for building the most listened to Christian stations in Kentucky; helped develop and launch the nationally syndicated Albert Mohler Program; published Louisville Now magazine; and our group of stations was selected by the company’s national program customers to receive the Salem Station of the Year National Ministry Award for five consecutive years.

Additional team honors, 2005 Focus on the Family Station of the Year (medium market); 2006 nominee for NRB Radio Station of the Year (Talk); and 2006 nominee for Marconi Religious Station of the Year.

MarcyBunch2I have been married to my bride Cyndi for twenty-seven years and we live in Louisville, KY.  The Marcy family includes four daughters and son, seven grandchildren, one great grandchild and dog Maggie.

I enjoy doing anything with Cyndi (especially gardening and cooking); family gatherings; jogging; playing piano; pursuing interest in writing; reading.
