When we look back at 2018, God’s faithfulness has been all over it! The Q 99.7 has played an important role, once again, in our community by helping unite the local body of Christ while introducing Christ to those who don’t yet know him through our 24/7 broadcast of uplifting, contemporary Christian music.

Our broadcast carries the message of Hope that we call the Gospel to more than 25,000 people each week! In cars, homes, businesses and streaming on smart phones and laptops, The Q 99.7 is touching lives and is the station that people tune-in to for Hope and Encouragement in the Greater Springfield region.

The last year as been a fast track filled with many great changes here at the ministry. In May of 2018, we launched our brand-new website and our very own app for your smartphone allowing us to better connect with our listeners and our community. In addition, we launched a fundraiser to raise support for a new studio upgrade and build out at our current office location in Agawam. This was a big need since we have been using the same equipment over the last decade which is now outdated and falling apart. This is part of our greater vision of taking things to a higher level of efficiency and to serve our community with excellence.

In 2018, The Q 99.7 was also able to “give back” by visiting many churches during the summer months and setting up at their Vacation Bible Schools to simply connect with parents and their children while handing out freeze pops. We were able to help the Springfield Rescue Mission raise over $10,000 during their Race to 100 campaign in November 2018 which helps feed and care for our homeless friends and neighbors in need during the holiday season. We also promoted dozens of events in our community without cost as a giveback to ministries in our local area...and so much more!

Finally, the stories of how God has touched lives through the powerful message of the Good News of Jesus Christ keep coming!! 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 your faithful prayers and financial support, we are able to continue to minister 24/7. We are so very grateful to Christ Presbyterian Church for your ongoing support!
