KKJM/St Cloud (Spirit 92.9) PD Jess Hart Checks in with HisAir.Net. regarding their recent fundraiser. Jess says, “I would say it’s big news for us that we just hit our biggest goal ever and it was a record setting fundraising event! We had Lisa Williams and Melony Mckay with us as guest hosts and it was the most God centered, fun, faith building fundraiser we’ve ever had. The stories that were coming in were like nothing we had ever experienced before and it became a really worshipfull and amazing event in which God can only get the glory. We went a little into overtime on Friday morning which we don’t usually do but hit 100% of the GOAL within just a few hours of that. We are all completely in awe of how God moved during this fundraiser. It honestly stopped being about raising money and became more about deep connecting with listeners. We are all still in awe of what God did last week!”
