Some Sort of Rock Show!

promojohn : August 2, 2013 9:32 pm : John Staffieri, Uncategorized

You can listen to the very first episode of  Some Sort of Rock Show on Sunday night from 8-10!  It’s a brand new, weekly show featuring the “LOUDER” side of WJTL.

This week’s playlist will include new music from Skillet, Red, Manafest, Rhett Walker Band, and Abandon Kansas.   We’ll mix in some favorites from Lecrae, Third Day, and TobyMac.

We’ll take a close look at the lyrics of Needtobreathe & Family Force 5.

As if that’s not enough…Listen for a “Now and Then” double plays with Thousand Foot Krutch  & Switchfoot.

It’s a mix of rock, pop rock, hip-hop, & roots rock!  That’s why we call it Some Sort of Rock Show!



WJTL Ethiopia Compassion Sponsor Tour – UPDATE

stacey : August 2, 2013 3:58 pm : missions, Stacey Gagne, Staff Pages

As the departure time for our planned Compassion Sponsors Missions Trip to Ethiopia has approached, some of you have been asking me about the status of the trip.   We were to have left  August 3rd, which (as I write this) is tomorrow! I can’t believe August is already here.

Unfortunately, we did not have enough people registered in time to make the trip possible for this year. We are talking with Compassion about options for rescheduling a similar trip in the future.  I am still anxiously looking for the day that you are able to meet the children that have been sponsored through the WJTL community.

Though it is disappointing that we are not able to go on the dates we originally planned, I am confident that God’s timing is perfect and still prayerfully have my sights set on an opportunity to return with you many of you to see the faces of the children that you sponsored.

I’ll take this opportunity too, to remind any of you who currently sponsor a child to send them a letter today … and if you don’t yet, check out to find out how.

Lesson Of Faith-Jesus Light of the World

john : August 1, 2013 5:30 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today, WJTL remembers the identity of Jesus as the light of the world.

In John 8:12, Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

With our focus of faith on Jesus, we have moral clarity with a better understanding of how God wants us to live.

With our focus of faith on Jesus, we have Kingdom clarity with a better understanding of what God wants us to treasure.

And with our focus of faith on Jesus, we have directional clarity with a better understanding of where God wants us to go.

Jesus invites us to follow Him and to see the world in the light of His grace and truth. He offers abundant and eternal life to those who say “Yes” to His invitation.

The identity of Jesus as the light of the world is a lesson of faith worth remembering.

John Shirk

Where Bumper Stickers Touch Lives

Intern Sarah : July 31, 2013 12:01 pm : Intern Sarah


There are many different reasons for wanting to sport the iconic WJTL bumper sticker on your vehicle.  I have heard from many different people that their bumper or static sticker looks great on their car.  Some of the pictures we have received have had some pretty interesting designs.  But these stickers are more than just a fashionable accessory that gives your car character.

Did you know that by showing off your WJTL sticker that you are not only supporting your favorite local Christian radio station, but helping us spread God’s word?  By sporting a bumper sticker you are letting others know about WJTL so that they can tune in.  We have heard from people who have seen our sticker on a listener’s car, turned their dial to FM 90.3 and their lives have been changed because of it!  If one sticker can do that, think of how many lives even 50 or 100 stickers can touch.

In all honesty, we here at WJTL could broadcast all we want, but it is you, the listeners, who make us a success through your love and support.  God uses your bumper sticker to help us get His message out to more people.  So when you send your bumper sticker in to win, just remember, you are not only entering for a chance to win some great prizes, you are helping to share God’s word, just by driving your car!

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: TobyMac

phil : July 25, 2013 7:01 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) TobyMac is in the midst of his critically acclaimed, worldwide, ‘Hits Deep’ tour with Brandon Heath, Chris August, and Mandisa, among others. Toby’s latest project, “Eye On It,” debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200, and was named by iTunes as the Best Contemporary Christian Album of 2012. TobyMac’s singular vision remains the same today as it did when he was a member of the seminal group, DC Talk. “I’ve been doing this for a while,” he says. “As long as you are discovering new things, creating new things, and climbing new mountains, it will always be fresh.” Toby’s supporting cast, The Diverse City Band, plays what Toby describes as a “musical stew” of rock, funk, soul, Latin, reggae, pop and gospel. For more on TobyMac, go to; you’ll find the launch music player, videos, facebook page, and much more.

Intern Sandra Out and About: Christmas in July

Intern Sandra : July 25, 2013 12:39 pm : Intern Sandra

Merry Christmas! Intern Sandra here, and yes, I know that Christmas is still five months away.

The Reformation Luthern Church is having a Christmas in July event this Sunday the 28th to remind us that the miracle of Christmas is amazing in any season.  I stopped by this morning to talk to Pastor Luke, the Reformation Luthern Pastor, Mimi, the program coordinator, and Ray, a member of the evangelism committee about the event.  They all share my love for classic Christmas hymns, and I was excited to hear that the program features many hymns sung with a full choir, and even a former singer with the Metropolitan Opera!  Mimi brought up a good point; so often we only get to sing a few Christmas hymns, but at this event so many classic hymns will be sung (and played) in exciting arrangements with many voices.  Pastor Luke shared his passion for returning to the fundamentals of Christmas without the inevitable craziness that comes with the December holiday season. He’ll be delivering reflections throughout the evening that focus us on the miracle of Christmas, and the importance of it to our faith.

Ray told me a little more about the other activities featured in the event, including crafts for kids, a nativity collection, and more. There might even be a chance of snow!  The event sounds like a great time to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, and enjoy fellowship without the commercial aspect of the season.  Ray, Mimi, and Paster Luke were all enthusiastic about this twist on Christmas in July, and I had so much fun discussion the holiday season with them.


The Christmas in July event will be held Sunday, July 28th at the Eastern Mennonite Missions building in Salunga, PA. For more information, visit, or the events page at
