TROUBLE LISTENING

How do I listen online?

You can listen on any computer from Windows Vista to Windows 10, and all Macintosh computers, by clicking on the bar at the bottom to start.

How do I see what just played?

You can see who just played on the player, or mobile device, or by Clicking Here.

Why won’t the player open?

If you have an “Ad Blocker” extension, or software to not allow media to pass through, this may be what’s stopping that. Go into the settings of that software and allow our services to pass.

I can listen, but it “buffers” or “skips”, why is that?

When the player is working, but at times sounds like its skipping through the song, or stopping and starting, most of the time that is your internet connection. It may not be strong enough, or fast enough to handle the stream. Another problem could be your computer, if its infected or the processor is to slow. Just be aware, on our end, everything checks out, and we schedule maintenance on our streams late at night, or early in the morning.

Can I listen on my phone?

Yes! We have an App. Download it from your store.

What devices work?

Right now we have an Apple and Android mobile app. All Apple devices, and Android devices should allow you to listen us on your device.

It won’t play in Safari, Internet Explorer, or Chrome?

Our player is designed to work on those applications for computers. When it comes to listening on a mobile device, we recommend using our app, for a full experience.

When I listen it buffers, why’s that?

We’re sorry your experiences technical difficulties. Should your app “buffer” or skip, try doing this,

  • close the app completely, then restart
  • check your bars, our app works best with 2+ bars
  • if its still not working, we must be doing some maintenance, and will finish asap.

What is NextRadio?

NextRadio is a 3rd party company, that allows you to use the FM chip in your smartphone, to listen to the radio.

Who can get it?

They are only available to Android users, and only if the users providers have unlocked this feature on their device. We have no say in this matter.

When I listen on their app, how do I find you?

When you open their app, it will determine where you are, and so you must be under our signal to receive us. If it detects our signal, it will then show up in the main menu of stations, KJIC 90.5, and will allow you to listen.

Note: We are not responsible for anything promoted, or advertised in the NextRadio app. We pay to be able to provide our service through their device, and we hold no ties to NextRadio.

What is Sponsoring?

Sponsoring is your business or ministry joining with us in this ministry in bringing the message of Christ to the world. When you become a Sponsor, your saying I believe in what your doing, and I want to be apart of it too.

Who can Sponsor?

Any business or non profit can become a sponsor.

Is sponsoring “Advertising”

No. While indirectly your information is presented, and the public is made aware of your support, the goal of sponsorship is to showcase your participation with our ministry. Christians want to do business with other Christians, and so they are more likely to do business with you, than with a random company.

How much is it to become a Sponsor?

I have a business, can I Advertise?

Unfortunately no. The FCC has declared that we are a non-profit, and so we cannot advertise For-profit entities. Only non-profits may advertise.

Tell me about Advertising..

Glad you asked, our sales team can help you create a campaign to reach your target audience. Reach them Monday – Friday 9-5 @ 281-824-1228

Who can advertise?

We are non-profit, therefore only Non-profits can advertise on our station.

If only non-profits can advertise, why do I hear business’s?

What your hearing technically not advertising on business’s. Those are Sponsorship’s. In those spots you will notice there are no “call to action” words or “best, greatest, deal” words. They are spots saying thank you to business’s for supporting us. 

How much is it to advertise?

That’s a broad question. We work with you, understand your budget, and create a campaign around that. Starting prices for advertising one time events begin at $600. Remember this is Houston, a mega market in advertising.

What does a typical process of advertising look like?

First, you come to us with all the information on the event to advertise. Next, we work out a campaign, based on your budget, and form it for you. Once the campaign is formed, payment is required, as well as signatures for contracts, and terms. Once all is approved, scripts/pictures are sent to you for approval. Once approved, they are made public for the time allowed. After your event, we’ll follow up with a spin report (a report that shows the times the spot played), and details on the event. If the event met your expectations, or didn’t, then we can work on improving your events promotion.
