From The (Former) Manager’s Desk- Change…It’s Good!

KA2As you may have heard, we've had a few changes at local Christian radio that took place effective January 1st.

But first, let me back up a couple years to a process that began with the Board of Directors of United Ministries (the owner of KJOL radio.) At my urging, we began working to create a smooth (hopefully) transition where I could step back from the position of Station Manager and my overall role would change. At the same time, the Board of Directors determined that Dave Andrews should step forward to assume the position of Station Manager. Since then, the process of training and transferring responsibilities has been underway, culminating in the change January 1st.

I remain as Vice President of United Ministries and active in the work of local Christian radio. I desire to commit more of my time to stewardship issues, public relations, projects and growth. The on-air structure has changed as well: After nearly 33 years, we felt it was time to add a fresh voice to the weekday mornings. SO, Leslie Kell has joined Dave and I have moved to 12 noon-3 pm weekdays, as well as "Evening Praise." Oh, and Dave Combs is adding 12 noon to 5 pm on Saturdays to his weekend schedule. We hope you will enjoy these changes as we get 2018 well underway from local Christian radio!

Please let me say that it has been my distinct privilege to serve as Station manager for all these years. It is humbling that the LORD would entrust me with this position -and - you would so generously invest in (and pray for) KJOL all these years. We do not take that privilege and responsibility lightly!

A little business...we are done sorting the mail and crediting donations to 2017 as needed. At this point, it is safe to say we have met our projected need for 2017 and maybe a little extra. Thank you! We will keep you posted on progress!

Finally: Thank YOU for your continued prayers and support. As we move ahead in 2018, join us in looking forward to all the LORD will do through local Christian radio together!

Kurt’s ♫Music Notes♫-Christian Musicians in the News

Michael W. Smith releases two new albums
Michael W. Smith is releasing not one, but two new albums in February.

On Feb. 16, he releases the studio album “A Million Lights.”  Smith says he was driven by the divisive national sentiment of 2017.  “About half the album was written in response to where we are as a nation,” said Smith.  “In the age of social media, people have forgotten how to talk with one another, to be civil.”

Then on Feb. 23, he release a live worship album called “Surrounded.”

"The thought of doing another live worship project has been something I have processed for a while now.  The question I have asked myself most is not so much what do I want to do, but what do I need to do. ... What expression of worship does He desire from us.  Have we missed something?

“The reality is, it is not the style of our expression He is concerned with, it is the heart.  He wants our honesty.  He wants our vulnerability.  He wants us to come to him as we are, not as we want to be.”

Newsboys past and present unite for “Together Again” tour
The Newsboys are doing a reunion tour of sorts.  Former bandmates Peter Furler and Phil Joel with join the band, along with new lead singer Michael Tait (formerly of dcTalk) for a 40 city tour this spring.  Furler is remembered as the lead singer on “He Reigns” while Joel sang lead for “Entertaining Angels.”  Joel’s current band Zealand Worship will also join the tour.

Family Vacation at Estes Park with Mac Powell
Mac Powell of Third Day is leading worship at a family camp near Estes Park next summer.  The Wind River Ranch is a Christian family dude ranch.  The public is invited to join Powell and his family during the weeks of June 24 or July 15.

Samson: the Motion Picture
Pure Flix Entertainment (the company that brought you “God’s Not Dead”) will release “Samson” in theaters on February 16.  The soundtrack album will be released February 2, featuring Dream Label worship leaders, led by Cindy Cruse Ratcliff of Lakewood Church.
