Creation Fest 2014!

July 6th, 2014 2 comments

INTERN KRISTIN – I cannot believe how fast June flew by! It seems like only last week I was taking my final exams. But in fact, last week I was attending and volunteering at Creation Fest Northeast! Creation is one of my absolute favorite times of the year because not only do I get to see performances by some of my all time favorite bands, I also get to see some of my very best friends that I made at the festival and do not get to see regularly. Even more awesome than that, though, is witnessing how Christ uses Creation Fest to change people’s lives. I am amazed every year to see what an impact can be made on such a large group of people.

This was my seventh year volunteering at Creation, and it was as great as ever! I was there for a total of 9 days, helping with set-up, the main part of the festival, and tear down. My job there is to do time cards for the main stage; this basically means that I time the bands and hold up signs letting them know how many minutes they have left in their set. It’s so cool to have that small bit of interaction with the artists, even if all it really consists of is a head nod or a smile. It really is a great gig. On top of that, I ran back and forth to the WJTL tent and helped out there as much as possible. It got a bit hectic with multiple jobs to do, but luckily Intern Eddie was there to help out when I couldn’t!

This year was as hot and wet as ever, but the fun of the concerts and the atmosphere of the crowd made up for the weather. Some of the highlights of my week at Creation were:

Switchfoot – One of my favorite groups, and they are always amazing! I looked forward to their set all week and they did not disappoint. Jon Foreman is one cool dude.

Family Force 5 – I was very interested to see how the dynamic of their show would change since their former lead singer (Soul Glow Activatur) left. I must say I was very impressed! I have seen this band perform more times than any other group, and it was one of their best shows, in my opinion! (I still miss Soul Glow, though!) They just always have so much energy.

For King & Country – I discovered these guys at Creation 2013 and loved them! They were just as great this year, and they seem like such genuine people. They have such obvious talent, as well.

There were so many more great performances – Chris Tomlin, Matthew West, TobyMac (how does he do it?!), and Brian Campbell Band, who lead worship every morning and evening, and are some of the nicest guys.

If you’ve ever been to Creation Fest, it is no wonder why it is one of my favorite times of the year. You can’t help but have a smile on your face at seeing how God is working around you. Worshipping along with tens of thousands of people is truly amazing! And if you’ve never been, I highly recommend attending Creation 2015!

Meet Intern Kristin!

June 18th, 2014 1 comment

INTERN KRISTIN –  Hello WJTL listeners! My name is Kristin Heydt, but you will probably come to know me better as Intern Kristin. I am ecstatic to have the chance to intern here at WJTL, following the lead of many before me, including my older brother. After seeing him get to do all sorts of cool things with the station, I hoped for years that I might be able to have the same opportunity. To my delight, I was fortunate enough to have received one of the internship positions for this summer! Following my time here, I will be entering my junior year at West Chester University where I am studying communication. I am focusing on both the public relations and broadcasting aspects of communication studies, so being at WJTL is a great fit for me. My goal is to get a full time job working in sports media.

I have been a resident of Mount Joy for my entire life and am the youngest of three siblings, with two older brothers. My oldest brother Scott, who interned here at the station in 2008, also graduated with a degree in communication from Millersville, and lives in Lancaster with his wife and son (my nephew Carter, who rocks!) My other brother Ben also graduated from Millersville and just received his master’s degree in new media journalism. My mother is a teacher in the Donegal School District, and my father is the teaching pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in Millersville. My parents have always had a huge impact on my faith.

In my spare time when I’m not interning here at WJTL, I enjoy relaxing with my friends and family, listening to music, taking afternoon naps and singing in the shower. I am also a HUGE hockey fan, and could talk about it for hours. Go Flyers!

So far, I absolutely love being a WJTL intern. I have done a variety of jobs including recording promos for the bumper sticker contest, assisting with live remotes, and doing the weather for the morning show. I love the opportunity to be able to have real learning experiences here at the station, and I always feel like there are impacts being made. The staff here is so great, and I am very lucky to be able to work with them for the entire summer! I hope to see you at a WJTL event soon!
