From The Manager’s Desk- Fall IS Here!

Ken AndrewsWhile Fall has officially arrived, it still feels a lot like Summer to me! But, the final quarter of 2015 is here and it's getting really busy with a lot of activities on the Western Slope. There are so many that I don't have room to list them all, so let me encourage you to check them out on our website at www.kjol.org. Both the Home Page and the Community Calendar Page have lots of information about events of interest.

I do want to draw your attention to one event that may be of particular interest. Family Life Today is presenting a one-day simulcast (satellite) marriage event for couples that you can attend in Grand Junction! It's called "I Still Do!" and Redlands Community Church is hosting the simulcast on Saturday, October 17th. Featured speakers will be Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine (heard on Family Life Today at 8:05 am weekdays on KJOL) and others, including Crawford Loritts and Allistair Begg (both also heard on KJOL.) Look elsewhere in this E-News or on our website for complete details!

With the holidays coming, please be sure to let us know about upcoming events your church or Christian ministry have planned. That includes "Halloween Alternative" programs, Thanksgiving, Christmas and ministry outreaches. You can email the information to info@kjol.org, FAX to (970) 254-5550 or mail to KJOL, 1354 East Sherwood Dr., Grand Junction, 81501. We need at least TWO weeks notice of the event, and please give complete information, including contact person(s), etc. (Disclaimer: we do reserve the right to decline the announcement, but that rarely happens!)

Finally, September was a very good month for us, having exceeded our income projections. That enabled us to significantly reduce our shortfall for the year. However, (you just knew there was a "however", didn't you?) there is still a significant gap to close by year's end. SO, please continue to prayerfully share and we will trust the LORD to see our full need - and obligations - met when we close the books on 2015.

As always, thanks you so much for your faithfulness to local Christian radio. The are exciting days and we count it a privilege to "co-minister" the Gospel of Jesus Christ with you!

Kurt’s Music Notes- Three New Worship Artists

All three artists in this month’s feature are technically “new” although, as you’ll see, not exactly (unless you’ve never heard of the Newsboys or James MacDonald).  They each bring their own unique style of worship music.

Zealand Worship
Zealand Worship
“Good Good Father”
For thirteen years, Phil Joel was easy to spot as the member of the Newsboys who had the long blond locks.  In 2007, he decided to leave the Newsboys to pursue a more “hands on” ministry.  Although he didn’t plan on it, Joel found himself doing more and more worship leading, and his new band is a reflection of his change in mission, adding, “The focus isn’t on me or the band and I love it!”  (By the way, both Zealand and Chris Tomlin have recorded similar versions of “Good Good Father” and you may hear either version at various times on KJOL.)

You're a good, good Father. It's who You are.  And I’m loved by You.


Seeker & Servant
Seeker & Servant
“In Awe”
Brothers Cameron (23) and Chandler (21) Wood of Jackson, Mississippi, started Seeker & Servant in 2012 as a music ministry at their church.  Later they were joined by childhood friend Kodi Gautier (22), whose percussion and electronic programming adds a “City Harmonic” feel to their sound.  Their first album, “Into Your Love I Go,” features eight songs that describe a person’s journey from seeking to finding and understanding God.

In the morning when I rise, I’ll be lifting Your name high
You alone are worthy of my praise, You alone are worthy of everything

Jon Guerra
Jon Guerra
“Stained Glass”
Growing up in Wheaton, Illinois, Jon Guerra is part of the Vertical Church Band at James MacDonald’s Harvest Bible Chapel.  (Meredith Andrews was one of his fellow members.)  He released a solo album in 2015.

We have stains, it's true, But when Your light shines through
We all look like stained glass windows to You

We are being able to stream KJOL live from our apartment in China - even if it is the middle of the night we are listening to! :) We are grateful to be able to have a little taste of home.
