KJLT & KJTF Home Page

This has been a tough year with higher gas prices and energy costs. Everyone has been affected in one way or another with what is going on in the world. Still we can rejoice that God is in control and mindful of every need. “got Jesus! got Joy!” is the theme of the KJLT/KJTF Sharathon October 11th, 12th and 13th. Romans 15:13 says “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” We have hope and can be filled with joy and peace!

Since 1952 KJLT has proclaimed the Good News of Jesus Christ! Later the full 100,000 watt KJLT 94.9FM was added providing contemporary Christian music and programming. KJTF 89.3FM provides a more traditional format of Christian music and programming. Our reach of 94.9FM is extended in some of the fringe areas with translators. Both FM stations are streamed on the internet. We also have a translator that allows broadcast of the AM station serving North Platte on 95.7FM. We are in the process of purchasing a translator in McCook, and building a 500 watt radio station there as well. All of this takes your support.

Our annual sharathon is an exciting time as the needed funds are raised to operate three Christian Stations for another year. There are three ways you can help. Ministries depend on prayer, support, and volunteers.

Let’s begin with the foundation of prayer! I want to encourage you to pray for this special event. Once again KJLT is having 30 days of prayer prior to the Sharathon. Each day a specific prayer request will be shared on the air, and posted on Facebook. A prayer reminder can be sent by text or email each day. Just mention the 30 days of prayer in an email to kjlt@kjlt.org. Even if you sign up late, your support in this way will be greatly appreciated.

Financial support is essential! Our sharathon goal this year is $346,750. Daysponsors are just over $79 a month or an investment of $950. You may want to sponsor a day in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or perhaps to honor your pastor. You may also remain anonymous. Your special day can be included on our Daysponsor calendar which has become very popular. Your date will need to be reserved with your Faith Promise by the end of October to be included on the calendar. I would also encourage you to reserve your day soon. If you wait too long the date desired may already be taken. T-Shirts have become popular with our annual sharathon. Day sponsors may choose if desired a T-Shirt with this year’s sharathon theme and, a KJLT/KJTF Cap.

A number of friends have joined the KJLT/KJTF Dollar a Day Club in appreciation of the programming and music heard every day. You may choose either a T-Shirt or Cap if desired with your gift of a dollar a day. A $365 dollar commitment or a dollar a day is another way of impacting lives.

Volunteers play a very important part. Telephone operators for the Sharathon are needed. Some come for an hour or two, some longer. The hours are very flexible. If you’d like to volunteer as a phone operator let me know.

You may choose to make a one time gift or a monthly gift. I want to emphasize every gift is important. Everybody doing something will make a difference. Be sure to include the occasion if you sponsor a day. You may choose a T-Shirt AND a Cap if desired. You may choose a T-Shirt OR a Cap for your Dollar a Day ($365) or more. There are also token gifts and product available for your gift of any amount. Just call to see what is available.

Finally I like to think of Sharathon as a family reunion time and open house. You are welcome to stop by our studios at B and Bailey in North Platte. There’s always plenty of food and refreshments to enjoy. Your visit would in fact be an encouragement. Sometimes we are able to have listeners share on the air how they have been impacted by KJLT/KJTF. And we love to have children here. What better way for them to see how Christian radio comes from our studios to your radio!

May you be filled with hope, joy, and peace!
