One sunny afternoon

I was alone with God the other day and I heard this – and I thought it might encourage you:

canstockphoto19634082“Dave, I have given you a mission with Pulse 101.7, and blessed you with brothers and sisters who also have My heart on this. I have raised up your board, mission partners, and giving family. I am the One Who is connecting you with listeners of My choosing. I have raised up men and women who direct non-profits and own businesses who have it in their hearts to bless My Name through Pulse – and in so doing bless our city.

“What you are doing together is not you – but Me working through you. I Am with you. My unfolding plans include Pulse 101.7. Your usefulness to My purposes continues. Be strong and courageous – My heart is for your city.”

I want to thank you for being part of our team. Together, God is using us to make a difference through Pulse 101.7FM!

Our Fall Pledge Drive is next Wednesday and Thursday, September 2nd and 3rd. Please consider making your gift now, and pray that God will prompt others to join you in the Pulse Giving Family. Thank you for what you do to make Pulse possible!

      SoulPop and Jordan Feliz

      bg  Jordan Feliz is one of the newest artists currently playing on Pulse 101.7FM! Originally from Clovis, California and now living in Nashville, Tennessee, Jordan has a passion for music with a positive message that points people back to Christ. After  months spent recording his debut EP, “Beloved” is now available for preorder. With the song The River, he describes his sound as “SoulPop!”

      He and his wife, Jamie, just had their first baby a few weeks ago, Jolie, and have a “second child”, their dog named Lenno. Jordan loves people and getting coffee! He grew up listening to Earth Wind and Fire, Sam Cook, Bill Withers and other similar artists.

      Jordan did an acoustic cover of Pulse artist Needtobreathe’s “Brother” – check it out!

      Stop out at the Pulse studios on September 2nd to see a FREE concert with Jordan Feliz and David Dunn. We know that you will enjoy this show!

          Getting to Know David Dunn


          Pulse artist David Dunn’s main goal is “To tell the truth, and do it in a beautiful way. When I write songs, they are usually about what I’ve been learning. Art is my context for being able to say what’s on my mind, and hopefully, it can help encourage those who are in a similar place in life.” His album, Crystal Clear, has five tracks including “Today is Beautiful” and “Have Everything” (which was inspired by a trip to Disney World. You can read more about that here).

          David Dunn will be at the Pulse Studio Wednesday September 2nd for a FREE show. RSVP and invite your friends on our Facebook event.

              Our 2015 CityStop program kicked off at the end of March and has been chock full of events of all sorts throughout the summer!11011955_1046392388711808_3200782617974683977_n

              Some of our favorites include the following:

              Fourth of July Parades. We reached out to over 50,000 people in two days, playing great Pulse music, passing out candy and music guides.

              11018786_1042625019088545_4876615681616482071_nConcerts. With two music festivals and three other concerts, we enjoyed all of our interactions. From stage time to backstage meet-and-greets with Pulse artists and contest winners to one-on-one conversations with our listeners, we always enjoy hearing Pulse artists live.

              Runs/Walks. Being part of the passion of each organization is always a great feeling. We were part of a SuperHero Run, Live Healthy Iowa, and a 5K for Human Trafficking Awareness… just to name a few!

              Community Events. These included: Pulse StickerStops, church events, business launches, birthday parties, graduation parties… and even a wedding reception! We love getting out into the community and adding more fun to your event!11156309_993488474002200_8224567173459956610_n
