So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. -- Galatians 3:26-28

Post Sharathon 2017- Less Than $10,000 to Go!

Sharathon logoWe’re praising the Lord for granting 94.4% of our total need of $177,000 thus far post-Sharathon, but as our theme stated we need you and your commitment or donation now in order to complete the task of “Serving Together.” Though we are grateful and humbled by the way so many are investing in the lives of others on the Western Slope, we are trusting that the Lord, who knows our need, will raise up other “workers”/partners according to His riches and good pleasure. 

God is doing exciting things through this local outreach!  So, let us hear from you at 254-5565 Monday-Friday 8 AM- 5 PM, via www.kjol.org, or by U.S. Mail.

clip_image012Or, you may donate TODAY via our website!  It is a secure way to take debit/credit card donations via our website!  Look for the “donate” button at www.kjol.org or on our Sharathon page and make your donation to KJOL today or anytime during the year with your debit/credit card and thanks again!

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and financial support!

Jungle Jam

Jungle Jam the Radio Show- A Few More Weeks to Listen Sat. @ 9 AM & Sun. @ 5 PM on KJOL!

You have one more month to enjoy more adventures with Gruffy, Millard, Jean Claude and the rest of the jungle crew as we discover truths from God’s Word along with quite a few laughs along the way. Join us for “Summer Jam” as we bring you Jungle Jam & Friends the Radio Show now through Labor Day Weekend Saturdays @ 9 AM and Sundays @ 5 PM on KJOL! 

From The Manager’s Desk- Busy, Busy, Busy…

Ken AndrewsWell, if your Summer is as busy as ours, you must be BUSY!

Vacations, projects, new programs and more are keeping the staff at KJOL busy and hopefully out of trouble. (Who has time for trouble?)

A couple new programs have joined our line-up at local Christian radio as "Today in the Word" was discontinued by the Moody Broadcasting Network. So, it's now "HighPoint" at 5:30 am and "Summit Life" at 9:30 pm. We will miss "Today in the Word" but after a lot of review we are sure you will enjoy these great new programs. (Look to the top of this page for more details!)

These past few months have been up and down financially - in fact income in the months April through June was VERY slow. That has affected us to the point that I have hesitated to proceed with construction of our new Delta FM translator, but I'm hopeful that after a fairly strong July we can begin to construct soon. Please keep us in your prayers as we really need to see the income shortfall reduced - or better yet - eliminated soon. We have a lot to get done and some changes forthcoming that are impacted by the shortfall.

As always, we are trusting God to provide and to direct us as we have the privilege of broadcasting the Good News of Christ. It is indeed a privilege to partner with you and we appreciate your investment and prayers for KJOL!

Trusting Him with you,

Ken Andrews, Manager
United Ministries

Kurt’s Music Notes- Newsboys Come to Grand Junction

Weather permitting, Grand Junction’s new Las Colonias Amphitheatre will host its first Christian concert on Monday, August 7, with the Newsboys and Ryan Stevenson.

Newsboys concert

The Newsboys are one of contemporary Christian music’s longest running bands.  Peter Furler formed the band in 1985 in Australia.  In 1987, they released their first American album (Read All About It) but you’re forgiven if you never heard of it.

It wasn’t until 1992 that the Newsboys burst onto the scene with their groundbreaking album I’m Not Ashamed.  The title track continues to be an anthem for believers (and for Voice of the Martyrs).

Subsequent hits included “Shine” and “Be Still” (1994), “He Reigns” (2003) and “God’s Not Dead” (2011).  Former dcTalk lead singer Michael Tait replaced Furler as the Newsboys frontman in 2009.

The band was featured in both “God’s Not Dead” movies in 2014 and 2016.  They have been at Nightvision twice (2007, 2016).


As we noted in the June newsletter, the band recently teamed with retired lead singer Peter Furler to record the worship song “The Cross Has The Final Word,” written by Cody Carnes of Gateway Worship (and husband of Kari Jobe).

Ryan Stevenson

Ryan Stevenson grew up in Bonanza.  Not the TV show.  Not the Colorado ghost town.  And definitely not the old Gilsonite mine near Rangely.  Stevenson grew up in the small farm town of Bonanza, Oregon.  He attended Bible school, worked as a paramedic, and launched his music career in 2003.

In 2013, he had his first major hit with “Holding Nothing Back.”  Also in 2013, he made his first visit to Grand Junction along with Audio Adrenaline.

Listener’s Corner- Surprised By Blessings, Prayers for Provision & Thanks!

Dear KJOL Radio station, I was a fortunate person to win tickets to Night Vision. Thank You! I was so surprised to win. What I did not know was that there was more! The winners received bag of "Goodies"-a CD, a T-shirt, backstage meet and greet with 2 artists. What a wonderful surprise and gift! Thank you for all you do.  

- A grateful radio listener of KJOL, Jayme, Grand Junction

Thank you all for the great word of our Lord. May God bless you and the station always.
