What a year 2016 has been! So many wonderful things to thank our God for. In the midst of tragedy and challenge, God is moving upon the hearts of people. The Q 99.7, along with many other churches and para-church ministries in the Greater Springfield MA and Northern CT region, have together been a reflection of the Light of Heaven upon this area. No matter what our perception is of what is happening in the world around us, one thing stands sure, God is pursuing the hearts of man.

The Q 99.7 is a hub connecting the greater body of Christ. Throughout the week, 24/7, we are playing music that lifts up the name of Jesus Christ. Music that carries the message of Hope that we call the Gospel. In cars, in homes, in businesses and streaming through the internet, The Q 99.7 is touching lives and is the station that people tune-in to for Hope and Encouragement. The Q 99.7 is also leading the way in creating moments for the greater body of Christ to gather and worship, pray, serve together and fellowship. Whether it be Ember Nights of Worship, Q Groups, local faith based events or through The Q 99.7 Missions Adventures, people from churches all over the region are gathering together proving that we are one body with many different functions.

This year was a big year for The Q 99.7. We became autonomous as we separated from our church family, Lighthouse Christian Church, who began this ministry. We were able add two part-time and one full-time team members to our staff. With the help of our Q Family, we were able to purchase our first vehicle. We took 15 people from 9 different churches to Nicaragua to serve alongside local missionaries, sharing the gospel, feeding the hungry, handing out much needed supplies and ministering to children.

This year we celebrated our 10 Year Anniversary with a special two-day celebration. We were able to bring together most of the people who, over the years, have contributed to this ministry in significant ways. We gathered together our on-air team along with founders Rich and Annette Dunn to host a banquet to honor all that God has done. The next day, the celebration continued with our extended Q Family at a carnival and concert. It was an awesome weekend!

In 2016, we entered into a new partnership with Ignite Outreach to bring to our region first class Christian concerts throughout the year. In so doing, we are also helping orphaned children throughout the world by providing a platform to bring awareness to the vital needs of these children.

The "Drive Through Difference" was huge this year. So many people in our community participated in this awesome way to "pay it forward". Several people called in or emailed throughout the year to tell us 'thank you" and to let us know that it really blessed them.

In late 2015, this ministry came under a direct attack as an outside secular media company tried to take us off the air. They filed with the FCC many false or misleading claims in hopes that it would disrupt our mission. I am happy to announce that as we end 2016, we are in the process of closing this case with the FCC in our favor. Glory be to God!

Lastly, the stories. The stories do not stop. So many people call or write to share how God has touched their lives through the ministry of The Q 99.7. It is always amazing how powerful music is in touching the souls of people. It is all made possible through your partnership with the Q 99.7. Through their faithful prayers and financial support, we are able to continue to minister 24/7. Thank you for being faithful to God. Thank you for your support of The Q 99.7
