A New Addition

Early radio experience

Early radio experience

After months of searching and interviewing several candidates, I’m excited to announce the newest full-time employee at the Journey, Danae Dolinsky-Songy, who will serve as our new program director.  Danae has several years of radio experience as a music director, as well as experience in marketing and public relations at a variety of institutions.  She has a degree in advertising and public relations, as well as a master’s degree in youth and young adult ministry.

Danae’s responsibilities will include a daily air shift, assisting with promotions and marketing, oversight and training of the student staff, music and programming and whatever else I can think of to keep her busy, which frankly won’t be too difficult.

I’m very excited she accepted our offer.  She is full of energy and is very excited to share God’s love through the Journey. The day after I offered her the position she sent me an email thanking me for offering her what she considered her dream job and she couldn’t wait to join the team.  Her first day will be Monday, August 4th. Please pray for God’s hand on all of us as we prepare for her arrival and look to the future as we expand the ministry.

For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.

Ministry Update

In just a few days, we will close out our third fiscal year of broadcasting. What a year it has been! Email and phone messages tell us people are encouraged as they listen to the positive, God-honoring music and programming we offer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Lives have been touched and hearts changed for the Kingdom this year. All I can say is praise God and thank you.

As we close out the fiscal year, I wanted to update you on where we stand with listener support.  Our listener goal for this fiscal year is $150,000. As of the end of May, you and God have provided $157,000, surpassing our goal, for which we are so very thankful and humbled. As I look ahead to a new year, I’m excited about what God has in store for us. We’re moving forward with plans to expand our listening area with a new tower and looking for another full-time staff member to help keep up with how the ministry is growing. Frankly, those are good problems to have.

If you’re new to this band of travelers on the Journey, you should know we are a listener supported radio ministry, depending on listeners like you for the resources we need to stay on the air. If you’re already a supporter, please continue to pray for the ministry.

For the Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
