Manager’s Memo 03-20-2019
This week has been just a little bit silly at the Journey. Spring Sharathon is coming, and everything involved in getting ready for that. In the last few days, I’ve placed orders for almost $70,000 worth of equipment and furniture for the new production studio, programming computers, phone system upgrade and studio transmitter links. Construction at the new building is complete. I was out sick with a stomach bug for a couple days. And most of a hundred high school students are on campus for a film challenge sponsored by my other job as a university professor. Like I said, kind of silly around here. And it’s pretty obvious why we need your prayers and support.
Sharathon is days away. If you are new to the family, you need to know we are a listener supported ministry that exists because listeners like you believe in our mission and share their God-given resources with us. We’re doing something a little different this year. Our goal is a definitive $93,279, exactly what we need, looking at the budget and what we expect to receive from our monthly contributors. We will be starting the goal at zero, with no match money set aside, no built-in monthly total included. We want to be honest and transparent in all things, but especially with how we use the resources you share with us.
Over the next few days, please pray for the staff, our health, our preparations, friends who will travel to help with our Sharathon, work on our new studios, and of course, how you can be involved during Sharathon. I know it kind of a long list, but like I said, it’s been kind of silly around here. Thank you.
For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.
