Faith Matters

Sundays at 5pm

KTTZ FM 89.1, Lubbock’s Voice of the Arts, proudly presents: Faith Matters, a ground breaking local program, hosted by Ted Dotts. Faith Matters promises to spark thought and conversation through dynamic dialogue about Faith.

Faith Matters dives into everyday issues. This isn’t church on the radio; this is your friends and neighbors sharing stories of faith and perseverance.

Our host Ted Dotts is a retired United Methodist clergyman who served forty-four years in appointments to ministries of local church, judicatory official, medical ethicist, and hospital administrator.  He taught for twenty-eight years in the Course of Study School at the Perkins School of Theology at SMU. For twelve years, he was an occasional lecturer in medical ethics at the School of Medicine and the School of Law, Texas Tech University. He served on the Board of Trustees for Southwestern University and the Board of Trustees of the Lubbock Methodist Hospital System Board. Ted is currently the Chaplain at Carillon Life Care Center.
