WVFJ-FM (93.3 FM, "Atlanta's J93.3") is a Contemporary Christian radio station that serves Atlanta, Georgia, and has listeners in the nearby metro areas of Columbus and Macon, Georgia.

The station is owned and operated by Provident Broadcasting Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Watkins Associated Industries, Incorporated. Their stated mission is to provide wholesome family programming filled with joy, hope, and encouragement.

On February 13, 1981 Atlanta businessman Bill Watkins and his wife Joyce founded Provident Broadcasting Company in order to create a broadcast ministry for the benefit of Christian believers and those seeking spiritual inspiration. WVFJ than called "The Joy FM", was their first station in this new ministry. In 1998, J93.3 moved its studios from the small community of Manchester, Georgia into Atlanta market as Metro Atlanta's first Contemporary Christian radio station. Despite the move, the station still broadcasts from its tower near Manchester in area northwest of Greenville. On December 29, 2008 the FCC granted WVFJ a construction permit to upgrade the signal to a class C0 from its current class C1. The new tower will be east of Greenville and will bring 88kw into the Atlanta market pull vastly improve Columbus market coverage.
