Did you know students have been told they can’t read their Bible or pray during free time at school? If you share our belief that students should be empowered to express their faith—and that the Bible has a message of hope that should be celebrated, not banned--then you’ll love this event for students! Sign up for a chance to win a trip to meet the Newsboys! http://www.bringyourbible.org/ Whether you go to the website or not, remember to encourage those you know to bring their Bible to school and share their faith with others on October 6th!
Our new program, Ministry Spotlight, continues to bring a focus on ministries God is using locally, nationally, and around the world.

It's an open and honest look at the adventure and challenge of international ministry in this day and age. Be inspired by Clair and Mayanne Longuevan from Avant Ministries who have been serving the Lord through full time international missions for 52 years now and inspired many more into the service of the King. Tune in this Friday @ 7 PM for the next Ministry Spotlight and remember if you miss the program, you’ll be able to listen online anytime after it airs by going to our Special Programming page at kjol.org!
Current and former pastors agree the job is demanding: 84 percent of current pastors and 83 percent of former pastors say they feel on call 24 hours a day, while 48 percent of each group say the demands of ministry often feel like more than they can handle. Pastor Appreciation Month is a special time set aside each year to honor pastors and pastoral families for the hard work, sacrificial dedication and multiple blessings provided by these special people. Pastor Appreciation Sunday is coming up October 9th, so make plans to show your appreciation for those shepherds in your life by downloading your free clergy appreciation guide today or clicking the links below.

From The Manager’s Desk- Looking Ahead…
We've embarked on the final quarter of 2016 and it is hard to believe it will soon be a new year. With October already here, a couple reminders are in order! First, October is Pastor Appreciation Month. I would encourage you to find ways to honor your pastor and his family during this month! You might try an encouraging note, an evening out or some creative way to show your appreciation to him as he labors to serve the LORD and your church family. Check our website for more ideas on the Home Page at www.kjol.org.
Secondly, in October, the culture gives a lot of attention to the "holiday" that happens on October 31st. You know, THAT ONE! "Halloween" seems to get more and more attention every year, and as a result many churches and Christian organizations host events that provide a safe alternative to "Halloween." So, if YOUR church or Christian group hosts an alternative to this "holiday", please be sure to get the information to us soon so we share that with our listening family. We need to know the date, time, location, sponsor, any cost and contact information. And, again - let us know soon, please! Send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax to (970) 254-5550 or mail to the address below. We can announce it on-air and post on our website's Community Calendar.
But wait, there's more! This final quarter of the year is going to be absolutely critical for us financially. It's been an "up and down" year...and right now "down" is ahead. Or behind...I'm not sure! What I do know is that we are still running behind our projections through September. We clearly need a strong finish when we close the books at the end of this year and set the stage for 2016. So, please pray and remember to share in these crucial final months of 2016. SO many have been SO generous (even sharing extra) and we are both humbled by - and grateful for - your investment in local Christian radio.
In all things, we know the LORD is faithful. Keep trusting Him with us!

Jonathan Cain’s “Journey” of Faith
Jonathan Cain is the keyboard and guitar player for the band Journey. He wrote some of their biggest hits of the 1980s, including “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Faithfully.” In October, Cain will release his first Christian album, “What God Wants To Hear.”
Cain grew up wanting to be a priest and played the church organ during his teens but left the Christian faith until recently, when he met televangelist Paula White. They married last year, and Cain said on his website that his new Christian album “is a small way of giving back what the Lord has given me over the years.”
He wrote “What God Wants To Hear” after “the Lord swiftly gave me the lyrics I needed. I didn’t know what the music was going to be, but the gist of it was ‘Let me sing what God wants to hear, let me praise what God wants to hear.’”
Justin Bieber: “I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever”
Pop superstar Justin Bieber has had his share of negative publicity in the last few years, but last month at a concert in Paris, Bieber sat down alone on stage and sang the classic worship song "I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever." Thousands of screaming fans (mostly young women!) sang along at his invitation.
While admitting his personal struggles, Bieber has professed his Christian faith in interviews and on stage, including a concert in Los Angeles last year in which he debuted his new album “Purpose” and invited his favorite pastor, Judah Smith from The City Church in Seattle, to speak on stage.
Hillary Scott: “Thy Will” and miscarriage
Last month we introduced you to Hilary Scott, a member of the hit country trio “Lady Antebellum.” She recently released a Christian album with her family called “Love Remains.” KJOL has been playing her single “Thy Will” but Scott did not immediately reveal the backstory to the song until an appearance on "Good Morning America". She tearfully described how she wrote “Thy Will” after going through a miscarriage in 2015, losing her second child.
God is good! Thank you all for bringing KJOL into my home each day!
- Debbie, Palisade
Dear KJOL staff: Here is an add-on gift. Be blessed. Thanks.
- Cynthia, Grand Junction

You make the world brighter by the thoughtful things you do. I thank my God every time I remember you.
