Post Sharathon 2014- We Still Need To Hear From You

Post Sharathon Support Now

As of this writing we have $129,205 in total Faith Promises for 2014 or 74.3% of our need of $174,000.  That doesn’t mean all that money has come in, it simply means that 317 people have decided that God will provide them the necessary means to support us at various amounts over this next year (28 are NEW!).  It also means we still need to hear from more of you concerning your financial commitment to KJOL for this coming year!  Remember, we don’t automatically renew or add your Faith Promise from last year!  So, let us hear from you at 254-5565 Monday-Friday 8 AM- 5 PM, via www.kjol.org, or by U.S. Mail.

We believe God has asked us to bring the Good News through music and instruction that develops disciples of Christ everyday, but we can’t do it without your prayers and financial support.  So, please pray for us, for others in our listening family and, of course, for your part in seeing our need met in a timely way.

Listener’s Corner- Listener’s Provide Reasons To Give!

Ken & Dave, Thanks so much for your help getting the word out for our Alpha Omega event this past weekend. It went great!  Appreciate you guys & your support!
-Tim Nutting, Grand Junction

Our whole family has been extremely blessed by your ministry! Some of our favorite programs include Focus on the Family, Revive Our Hearts, Adventures in Odyssey, and Living on the Edge with Chip Ingram. We are daily encouraged and proud to be able to support such an awesome local radio station! Thank you so much for your faithful service to our Heavenly Father and the advancement of His kingdom.
- Stephen, Clifton

Your programs and music have helped me so much this past year. I listen to your programs about everyday. My husband and I went on one of The Weekends to Remember last November. It was wonderful.
- Diane, Grand Junction

Today, March 23, marks the 2nd anniversary of my Baptism into the family of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our family has struggled with many life changing events in the last few years, and KJOL has always been there to lift up prayers when I have called or to play encouraging music or teachings that seem to fit the appropriate time. My business has struggled as well but I felt that giving this Faith Promise was something I was lead to do. You guys are awesome!
- Seleena, Montrose

“Irreplaceable” The Movie- One Night Only – May 6th – From Focus on the Family
On Tuesday, May 6 @ 7:30 PM at Canyon View Stadium 14 Cinema in Grand Junction, Focus on the Family will unveil its first-ever, in-theater documentary, Irreplaceable. This feature-length film explores answers to the important questions "What is family?" and "Does family still matter in today's society?"

You'll join host Tim Sisarich, former Executive Director of Focus on the Family New Zealand, as he travels the world on a quest to explore what family really means and why it's important to humanity. While on the journey, he discovers why all humans have a yearning to be in a family and to be a part of something bigger than themselves. He also explores the forces contributing to the breakdown of family, including the decline of marital commitment, the prevalence of "anything goes" sexuality, and the rise of fatherlessness.

Strong families make the world a better place. And that's what Irreplaceable is all about. This documentary is timely and provocative, challenging audience members to take a closer look at their own families and to consider what can be done to make the family stronger.

Tickets are available now by clicking here.

Celebrate the Resurrection- Special Programming for Good Friday & Easter – April 18 & 20

For many Christians, Gethsemane is a brief rest stop on the way to the main story — the cross. But there are critical questions that demand explanation, which are revealed through interviews and sounds from Israel, combined with dramatic vignettes and original music score to paint a dramatic Easter landscape in this 54-minute new special from Moody Radio.  Listen to KJOL for broadcast details coming soon!

Front Row Live! Returns- Selah, April 25th on KJOL

Selah on Front Row Live!

Selah, the contemporary Christian vocal trio consisting of Todd Smith, Allan Hall, and Amy Perry will appear Friday, Apr. 25 on Moody Radio’s Front Row Live! Winners of five Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, this two-hour live concert will originate from Moody Bible Institute’s Torrey-Gray Auditorium.  Listen to KJOL for more broadcast details coming soon!

Mike Kellogg to Retire!- Music Thru The Night Host

Early this summer, Moody Radio’s most beloved voice, Mike Kellogg will be signing-off for his final broadcast. After a remarkable career that spans over four decades Mike Kellogg is retiring. If you know Mike, you know that he is an encourager-extraordinaire, writer, storyteller and air talent who deeply loves Jesus Christ! When Moody Radio Network launched in May of 1982, Mike Kellogg was the first person to greet listeners. Mike has been the only weekday host of Music Thru The Night since its inception. There will never be another Mike Kellogg. His voice and heart are irreplaceable. 

We will miss him and all of his evening friends will miss his companionship. That’s why we want to honor the work Mike Kellogg has done faithfully for so many years unto the Lord. In the coming weeks be looking for details on how you can personally thank Mike. We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to say good bye to their friend.

A new overnight program will launch weekdays July 6-7 with Kurt Goff and Roger Basick will continue as host of Music Thru The Night Weekend.  Kurt Goff has the “heart of a pastor” and looks to bring hope and encouragement to listeners. He believes serving God's people is what it's all about.  Here are his words about what you can expect the future of our nighttime programming to sound like.:
We’ll be taking listener calls, playing music, doing interviews, praying, discussing topics in the news, and tackling issues that involve following a real God in real life. Appropriately, the conversation will be ongoing in real time. Who knows what the Lord has in store each night? I can’t wait to find out.

From The Manager’s Desk- Not Done Yet

Ken AndrewsWith Sharathon 2014 now "history", there is more to the story as we are in "Post-Sharathon." That's because even though we had the generous participation from hundreds of "investors", we have yet to meet our full need of $174,000. Since Sharathon ended March 22nd, we've seen a significant reduction in the balance needed. However, there remains a significant balance to fulfill.

With that in mind, if you were among those who have already done your part to meet our need...thank you! We are grateful and humbled by your support. And...if you are someone who has yet to come on board with a "faith promise" we really hope to hear from you soon. It is always important to see the need met so we can move on to the daily business at hand - broadcasting the Good News of the Gospel to the Western Slope and now worldwide via the internet!

We are encouraged to see how the Lord has moved new "investors" to join the many faithful we've depended on for so long. (And, if you are a previous donor who has yet to renew in 2014, please remember we do not automatically renew your faith promise from last year.) We ask that you pray for the LORD's guidance and take the initiative to renew your commitment. Also, if you are someone who sends your gift via a "Bill Pay" service, it would be helpful if you could notify us you are continuing your commitment through Sharathon 2014.

We are so grateful for your prayers and generosity to local Christian radio. "Every Good Thing" indeed comes to us through the "Father of heavenly lights", but he uses you to be an important part of those "Good Things." Thank you!


Ken Andrews, Manager

Kurt’s Music Notes- Baby Pictures!

Laura Story expecting twins

Laura Story and husband Martin Elvington with Josie (now 18 mos.) and future twins

Laura Story knew she was pregnant, but on March 24, she revealed that she is having twins!  She is currently on tour with Casting Crowns, and added this prayer request on her website:

With these 2 sweet blessings has come worse morning sickness than I could have ever imagined.  I am currently on tour with Casting Crowns and there have been nights that I was unsure if I could pull myself off the couch to play my set.  Please pray for my stomach to be able to take in and retain the nutrients my body needs.  And pray that Josie will understand why mommy is resting more and not bouncing around with her as much.

Laura’s latest album is called “God Of Every Story” and with this news, it appears she will soon be the Mother of Two New Little Story’s!  In fact, their home will be a “Five Story House!”
