KKEQ/Grand Forks (Your QFM) encouraged listeners to sponsor a child through OneChild, during a two-day radio event on December 1-2, 2022.
According to KKEQ GM Phil Elke, “Not only was it a blessing to join with our listeners to change the lives of these precious kids, but Faron and One Child made the experience very enjoyable and professional. It was a fantastic 2 days!”
Faron Dice, National Director for Radio and Artist Engagement at OneChild adds, “It was amazing to see the deep connection that Your QFM has with its local audience, including two listeners who were willing to drive across town just to sign up to sponsor a child! I’m so thankful to the team for their passion for children and excited about the difference that our event will make in the lives of all of the sponsored children, their families, and their world!”

Award-winning Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist Natalie Grant puts a spiritual stamp on “You Will Be Found” from the celebrated musical-turned-movie Dear Evan Hansen. Enlisting the help of acclaimed singer/songwriter Cory Asbury, Grant’s moving version of the hope-filled ballad is available today (12/16) — listen HERE.
“The first time I ever heard this song, I was so overcome with how it just made me think of the message of the Gospel. The lyrics immediately made me think of the love of Jesus and how it has the ability to find every single one of us. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done, there’s never a moment that you are so far gone that the love of God can’t find you,” Grant says. “I feel like I have the opportunity, not only to let the love of God find me, but to then let the love of God shine through me so I can carry that light and that love to so many people who need to know the message that no matter who you are, when you’re broken and on the ground, you will be found.”
