Since the beginning of Shine FM, we have encouraged our listeners to
TAKE 5, TELL 5, GIVE 5.
As a result, we have been pushing back the dark in West Central Ohio for 5 years. We are so grateful for our Shine FM listeners! By supporting Shine FM, we have accomplished so much for God’s kingdom – together.
“Thanks for the TAKE 5 challenge. It has encouraged me to restart my devotion time with five minutes a day.” – Becky
“I recently just started listening to your station after I was invited to Rock the Lake. It is changing my life. Thank you!” – anonymous
Shine FM is dedicated to pushing back the dark in our communities. Do you want to join us? We have a 2017 challenge for our listeners…
Every listener. Giving at least $5 a month (Give 5) or a one-time gift of $60. Would you commit to be ALL IN in 2017?
“Your station is such a blessing to me! I feel like if everyone who listens would just give a little, it would meet your needs.” – Tina
Since we have been broadcasting for 5 years, we have identified 5 projects that we know we can accomplish if all of our listeners commit to being ALL IN. Once all the money needed is raised for the first project, we will complete it and move on to the next one, and so on.
(1) ALL IN…TO EXPAND
We have an opportunity to shine the light of Jesus in more West Central Ohio counties by expanding our 88.5 signal. This will allow us to solidify current areas where our signal is inconsistent, and better serve counties like Hancock, Marion, and Wyandot. CLICK HERE to see the coverage map.
*** UPDATE *** (9-4-17)
I am excited to announce that we are moving forward with the expansion of our 88.5 signal. God has revealed a plan to me to accomplish the expansion in two steps. Step One is moving our equipment from the current tower in Kenton to another tower location near Mount Victory. Step One also includes installing our new antenna. My goal is to complete Step One by the end of September. We have currently raised enough money to complete Step One, but need to raise another $20,000 to complete Step Two. Step Two includes installing the new transmitter. We will not be able to fully expand the signal until the new transmitter is in place. In the meantime, we will continue to use our current transmitter. Are you uplifted by the music? Are you encouraged as we share God’s truth? Do you hear the right song at the right time? Your donation will help others experience these things just like you do. See below to make a gift today to help us meet this $20,000 goal and complete the expansion. – Mark Boyer, Manager
(2) ALL IN…TO IMPROVE
We desire to improve your listening experience. To improve relationships within our communities and churches. By improving our radio equipment, we can provide consistent broadcasting and more community involvement including remote broadcasts.
(3) ALL IN…TO DEVELOP
Growth in our 88.5 signal will provide opportunities to connect in new communities. We will be able to develop and increase our current staff to meet the responsibilities of creating new relationships with listeners, churches and organizations in the expansion areas.
(4) ALL IN…TO PAY-OFF
By paying off our station start-up debt, we will free up $600 in our monthly budget and be able to create an Emergency Fund.
(5) ALL IN…TO GROW
As Shine FM looks to the future, we will always follow God’s lead. We hope to put funds toward improving the 88.9 signal, purchasing additional stations in Ohio, and purchasing our office building.
We know we can accomplish everything that God has for us with your continued prayers and financial support. We are excited to see what God does through our listeners in the next seven months as they become ALL IN!
