As a Ministry: KYKD is owned and operated by Voice for Christ Ministries, a nonprofit Christian missionary outreach. Every Announcer, Engineer or Secretary working at the facilities of KYKD are missionaries receiving financial support from individuals and churches, or is a self-supported volunteer.
Our History: The original FCC license for KYKD was granted to the Assembly of God Church in Bethel. After going "dark" (off-air) due to lack of staff, the Evangelical Covenant Church of Alaska purchased KYKD and broadcast independently for several years. In the spring of 1995, the Covenant Church contacted VFCM and began re-broadcasting KIAM at 3 KW of power. In October 1996, Voice For Christ Ministries purchased KYKD from the Covenant Church and raised the power to 7.9 KW. With the installation of a new transmitter in July 2006, KYKD is now broadcasting at 12 KW.
Our Passion for Jesus Christ: In keeping with our passion, significant portions of airtime are dedicated to glorifying Christ and proclaming His word. Explicit, accurate Biblical content will be required consistently from program providers and musicians, in accordance with Colossians 3:17. The presentation of concepts inconsistent with our statement of faith will not be allowed.
Our Philosophy Regarding Native and Rural Alaska: Believing God has called us to reach Alaska's Native and Rural residents, we will make a considerable effort to specifically inform and minster to these listeners. Their unique culture, lifestyle, and personality will guide the arrangement and style of our daily schedule, as we seek to follow Luke 14:23.
