What's Happening- The New MBI Pres' Has a New Program, and It's Great!

Mark Jobe KJOL is excited to bring a new program to the airwaves, featuring the new President of the historic Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.  

Dr. Mark Jobe is a passionate speaker and teacher of the Word, and can now be heard weeknights at 8pm.  

He grew up in a small village in Spain as a missionary kid, went on to attend the MBI, and began pastoring in the Chicago area.  His church grew from a handful of attendees, to over 7,000 in number over 27 locations. 

Mark and his wife, Ann, have been married for over 32 years, and have 3 adult children, Marissa, Josiah, and Grant.  

Dr. Jobe was elected the new President of MBI on January 2nd, 2019, and we are proud to add him to the KJOL Line-Up! SO...You might be wondering, "OK what happened to Walk In The Word, which I used to hear at that time?"  

On a recent early Monday morning, KJOL staff were surprised to find our usual Walk In The Word with James McDonald program was not in our system.  We were even more surprised, as were others, to find that they quickly discontinued their program over that weekend.  

KJOL had earlier been notified that Walk In The Word would be discontinued at the end of March, but the program was preemptively and suddenly discontinued before we had time to notify listeners. 

Please pray for the Harvest Bible Chapel in the Chicago area, as they are going through a tumultuous time, and could surely use those.  

Meanwhile, join us for teaching from Dr. Mark Jobe, weeknights at 8pm on KJOL, Local Christian Radio! For more about Mark Jobe, click here!

Last season, they reached their goal of 10,000 boxes sent out from the Western Slope!  Join the celebration on Saturday, March 9th, at 6:30pm at Appleton Christian Church.  Hear an engaging testimony from one of the recipients of an OCC Shoebox, and enjoy some great dessert.  For more....


Family Life Today Transition

Dennis Rainey will be retiring as host of Family Life Today in just a couple days!  He will be replaced by Dave Wilson on Monday, March 4th; and if you would like to learn more about Dave and his wife, Ann, go here.  You can write a note of thanks to Dennis & Barbara Rainey, as well.  


April Friendraiser

Please begin praying for our fundraising month of April, and that the Lord will bring others to this ministry through financial support.  Pray that He will bring new friends on board to join our current listening family of investors.  



Wonder Why we do that?

Ever wonder why we do what we do?  After all these years, KJOL continues to affirm and focus on the essentials of our mission.

From The Manager’s Desk

David AndrewsEver feel like the Tower of Pisa? Are people wondering when and if you are going to fall?  

Even though the Christian Life is also a marvel of miraculous engineering, we encounter a sink hole from time to time.  This month, I am reminded of the hymn by Anthony Showalter, “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms.” Showalter was inspired by Deuteronomy 32:27,

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”

We are truly safe and secure under the embrace of the Almighty.  Let’s face it.  Christ never said that we will be immune to the troubles on this earth.   In John 16:33, He rather explained, that in this world we will have tribulation; but we are to take heart.  He has overcome the world.   He is our peace. 

That is one of the reasons that we here at KJOL want Christ to permeate everything we do, from programming, to on-air conversations, to behind the scenes.  We recognize that people are hurting, and that includes Christians. We need Christ as our peace, our refuge, our foundation, and our everlasting arms. 

And as you hear of the latest two programming changes at our ministry (from Walk In The Word and Family Life Today), or any unforeseeable programming changes in the future, please keep in mind that we will do great diligence to bring you programming that will proclaim Christ clearly, effectively, and with depth. 

If you would like to see some great examples of this in our music, check out Kurt's Music Notes above. Simply, rather than hearing from us, we want you to hear from Him, the Prince of Peace. 

May God bless you with His peace, as you lean on His everlasting arms.

Kurt's Music News Three new musicians to KJOL

Every few years, a song comes along that follows none of the rules and checks none of the boxes.  Yet it becomes something special, something bigger than a typical hit song.  Every time we play this song for someone, their response is something resembling “That's beautiful.” – Centricity Music
 “Is He Worthy?” by Andrew Peterson contains a call-and-reply to the congregation, asking who is worthy to heal creation and conquer the grave.
Do you feel the world is broken?  (We do)
Do you feel the shadows deepen?  (We do)
But do you know that all the dark won't stop the light from getting through?  (We do)
Do you wish that you could see it all made new?  (We do)
Is all creation groaning?  (It is)
Is a new creation coming?  (It is)
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst?  (It is)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?  (It is)
Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David's root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy of this?  He is
The video is beautifully crafted.  Watch it here.

The group I Am They has a new song that celebrates “Scars.”
“It's natural for us to hide our scars; whether they're physical, emotional or spiritual. If we're being honest, it's because we're afraid of what people would think about us - or worse, that our scars are our identity. As we were writing this song, we had this realization that Jesus did not hide His scars, in fact they were a constant reminder of all He had sacrificed.”
Waking up to a new sunrise
Looking back from the other side
I can see now with open eyes
Darkest water and deepest pain
I wouldn't trade it for anything
'Cause my brokenness brought me to You

And these wounds are a story You'll use
So I'm thankful for the scars
'Cause without them I wouldn't know Your heart
And I know they'll always tell of who You are
So forever I am thankful for the scars
You can watch the Scars video here.


Jasmine Murray was a finalist on American Idol in 2009, and was Miss Mississippi in 2014.  She says her new song is a tribute to her mother’s Christian faith:
"I grew up in a single parent home.  My mom raised five children on her own and has always displayed the most incredible faith - even in the hardest circumstances."

While You Were Holding Me
All that darkness you lived through
Couldn’t dim the light inside of you
All the broken pieces
You kept giving them to Jesus
And He gave you strength to raise me up
Knowing one day I would see
He was holding you
While you were holding me
