From The Manager’s Desk- Already?

KA2It's already February, as January just zoomed right by! And, it's already time to make plans for our annual fundraising event. Sharathon 2017 is scheduled for March 30-April 1 (Thursday through Saturday.) As you can imagine, we are going to be VERY busy preparing to bring our needs to you for another broadcast year. We would greatly appreciate your prayers for us now and during Sharathon. There is SO much work to do to get ready for the event - and then - there's the event! We have a small staff and we will be working hard to do our part, as we ask you to do your part in meeting our financial needs.

Also, we would very much appreciate your prayers for our staff as we've had an unusually difficult time with illness and family challenges. The adversary never stops opposing those doing the LORD's work, and KJOL is no exception. But, as it says in I John 4:4: "...greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." It is a great comfort to know Who is REALLY in charge!

If you missed our recap from 2016, through the LORD's (and your) faithfulness we not only met our financial projections but slightly exceeded them. We took some heavy extra expense hits last year, so that little extra was a great help. Thank you! I've said it before, but it bears saying again - it is our privilege to serve the LORD by serving you and we are humbled by your generous, prayerful support of local Christian radio.

While January is always a slow month financially, I'm grateful to say we did meet the month's projection. PTL and thank you AGAIN!
Blessings in Him,

Ken Andrews, Manager
United Ministries

Kurt‚Äôs ‚ôęMusic Notes‚ôę-Passion Worship Turns 20

Passion 2017 small
This year is the 20th anniversary of the Passion Worship Conferences, an event that is credited with helping start the modern worship music movement.

Their first two albums introduced the world to musicians whose names are synonymous with modern worship:

  • Chris Tomlin
  • Matt Redman
  • Christy & Nathan Nockels (Watermark)
  • David Crowder Band
  • Charlie Hall


Passion had its beginnings in 1995 at Baylor University where Louie Giglio, fresh out of seminary, began a weekly Bible study called Choice Ministries.  It soon began drawing more than a thousand students.

In 1997, hundreds of students from across the country attended the first Passion Conference at Austin, Texas.¬† The next year, the album ‚ÄúPassion 98: Live Worship From The 268 Generation‚ÄĚ was released.

When it arrived on my desk at KJOL, I said, ‚ÄúWhat is the 268 Generation?‚Ä̬† Answer: Isaiah 26:8.¬† ‚ÄúYes, Lord, walking in the way of Your truth, we wait eagerly for You, for Your name and renown are the desire of our souls.‚ÄĚ

Songs from those early albums are standards in churches everywhere today, written by some of the top worship leaders of this generation.

David Ruis was a long-time Vineyard pastor in Canada. 
Matt Redman was a prominent worship leader in England. 
Martin Smith was the founder of the British band Delirious. 
Chris Tomlin was a young worship leader in Texas when Louie Giglio invited him to help with the first Passion conference in 1997.  Tomlin has been with the movement ever since. 

In 2008, Giglio teamed with Tomlin, Redman, and Nockels to form Passion City Church in Atlanta. 

This year in January, 50,000 students gathered at the Georgia Dome for Passion 2017.

Speakers included John Piper, Francis Chan, and Beth Moore.¬† Country singer Carrie Underwood made a surprise appearance, singing ‚ÄúMust Have Been Something In The Water‚ÄĚ with David Crowder.

During the conference, attendees agreed to sponsor nearly 8000 children with Compassion International in Bolivia, El Salvador, Indonesia, Rwanda, and Tanzania.
