Some 98.5 KTIS listeners were able to bring some worship to their neighborhood through the KTIS Backyard Transformation. Throughout the summer, 98.5 KTIS listeners were able to enter to win a grand prize of a $5,000 backyard transformation, and a private concert with KTIS artist Rhett Walker.
This year’s winners live in South Minneapolis, with a backyard just a few blocks away from the center of protests and unrest that put the Twin Cities in the headlines two years ago. Friends, family, and neighbors were able to come together for a night of worship and friendship.
“The winning family is a true example of what it means to love like Jesus.” says Kristina Winger, Audience Engagement Specialist for 98.5 KTIS. “Many guests told me how they had sacrificially given of their time, energy, and resources to serve their community over the past couple of years. It was a privilege to be able to give back to them and to bless this family with the opportunity to worship alongside their friends with Rhett Walker.”
98.5 KTIS has a vision to transform the Twin Cities one listener at a time. This backyard transformation was a small part of seeing that vision realized.
98.5 KTIS is a part of the Northwestern Media network of University of Northwestern – St. Paul. Northwestern Media stations broadcast on 81 outlets across 11 states. Their radio signals reach more than 1.4 million listeners each week.
