Thanks so much for your thoughts and for voicing your opinion regarding the recent changes at SPIRIT 105.3. Even though we are not always able to respond to every comment, please know that we are paying attention to what you are saying! As a listener, you are the most important part of the SPIRIT family, and your opinion is truly important to us!
Change can be hard even when the Lord directs it. Often during times of change, speculation and rumors come about the reasons behind the change. Since we consider you a part of the family, we want to make sure you know about everything that God is doing with this ministry, even the “behind the scenes” stuff. Over the past few months, we’ve had to say “goodbye” to several team members, like Scott and Sam, Tom (who is still with us, but not currently on the air), and most recently Matt Case. While each person has left the station for different reasons, and we are genuinely sorry to see each go, we rejoice with them in the knowledge that they are fulfilling what God has in store for them in this season of their lives.
Thankfully, when God directs a change in our life, it is most often to allow something new to enter in, and we are so thankful that He has been faithful to SPIRIT 105.3 in this way! We hope that you will help us welcome Paul Fredricks to the on air team. You will be hearing Paul on the weekends and other times, too. We are also really excited about Ana Kelly joining SPIRIT to ‘ride home’ with you every afternoon from 2 til 7. Both Paul and Ana are really excited to be a part of the SPIRIT family, and look forward to getting to know you better in the days ahead.
Just like family members commit to praying for each other, we really hope that you might be willing to pray for the work here and especially our new team members in the days ahead. That really is the most important gift you could give to the ministry! Also, we invite your continued feedback! If you have additional questions about the changes here, or if I can serve you in any other way, please don’t hesitate to give me a call, at 206-289-7857. I will do my best to respond as promptly as I can.
Matt Stockman, Program Director
