The Q 99.7 FM has entered into its 15th year of broadcasting a message of hope in Jesus Christ, 24/7, to the Greater Springfield area. We stand in awe of all that God has done in and through this ministry over the years, and we are excited for all that God has in store for 2020 and beyond.

As we reflect on 2019, we saw so many lives touched and changed through our broadcast – listeners being encouraged and reminded of God’s truth through songs containing the gospel message and as our DJ’s discuss life and faith, share scripture and pray over the airwaves. People from all walks of life and backgrounds are reached through The Q 99.7.

We’ve realized that there are so many people facing uphill battles with illness, the loss of a loved one, a struggling marriage, financial stress, fear and depression. God is using The Q 99.7 to remind them of who He is and that there is hope in Jesus Christ, the risen Savior of the world. Over the years, listeners have told us that it always seems that the right song comes on at just the right time. That’s how God works! We’ve heard stories from those who found hope in God through The Q 99.7 while in jail, homeless, on their death bed and when they wanted to give up on life. You are part of reaching and helping each one!

The Q 99.7 is also deeply involved in our community. In 2019, we were able to deliver handwritten Valentine’s cards to nurses at Baystate Hospital to let them know their work is appreciated. During the summer, we were present at VBS events throughout our area to surprise kids with freeze pops. At the beginning of the school year, we were present at a Springfield public school’s Open House and were able to give gifts to the students and their teachers. We held a free concert event to gather the local body of Christ to create connection and unity. These are just a few of the outreach initiatives that The Q 99.7 was able to do thanks to the support of our listeners and church partners like Christ Presbyterian Church.

During 2019, we launched our new studio upgrade, website, and mobile app to allow this ministry to operate at a higher level of excellence and efficiency. Thank you for being a part of all that God is doing in and through The Q 99.7 and for being a part of every testimony told. God is changing and touching lives all over our area. His heart is to reach the lost, and so it is our hearts, too. Your support is helping to change many lives in the Greater Springfield area.
