Hi! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and that your New Year is off to a great start! I wanted to take a moment to share the “why” behind our ministry. It’s summarized beautifully by a listener named Tom:

“I have been so blessed by the music on this station. Because of this music, I can honestly say I have grown in my faith. Also, I have been able to attend several concerts put on by Life 97.9.”

That is precisely what we want to happen! Our “why”, our mission, here at Life 97.9 is “to lead people to Christ, and nurture believers in their spiritual growth through Christ-centered media.” Tom says that’s exactly what’s happening in his life!

I hope you are sensing spiritual growth in your life too. Feel free to send us a note about it too. We’d love to hear your story. When you read stories like Tom’s, you know that your gifts of support to Life 97.9 are going to build up the Kingdom of God right here in the F-M area.

During January, we’re thinking back on the legacy of Northwestern’s former president, Dr. Billy Graham, who helped establish our radio network back in 1949. He challenged students to help build our very first station with gifts of $1.00 a week. In today’s dollars, that’s a little over $10.00. Could you give $10.00 a week this month, or $40.00 total, to continue the legacy?

Your gift right now will help ensure that Life 97.9 stays “on-mission”, leading people to Christ and helping believers grow in their faith. Click here to give. Your partnership in this ministry is needed and appreciated!

Thanks for listening to Life 97.9!

Yours in Christ,

Doug Smith
Station Manager
