CMI has a long history of reaching out to those in need and proclaiming the Word of Truth to people in Western Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming.
The last verses in Matthew tell of the Great Commission: to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations . . ." and CMI has used broadcast, print, and the Internet to impact people in Western Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming for more than 25 years.
CMI is the parent ministry for KCMI 97.1 FM radio station, Cross Times newspaper, and CrossReference Library.
The radio station went on the air in 1981 serving mainly Terrytown, Scottsbluff and Gering. In the late 1980s KCMI received a major boost in power and listener ship as it became a 100,000-watt station. KCMI now serves an area roughly bounded by Sidney, Oshkosh, Hay Springs, Nebraska and Lingle, Wyoming to the west. The station is the only true locally Christian radio station in the area. Listeners are able to enjoy a strong mix of quality Biblical teaching and Christian music. Teachers include: Dr. Bryan Clark from Back to the Bible, Dr. David Jeremiah with Turning Point, Chuck Swindoll with Insight for Living, and more. Our mix of music includes Contemporary Christian, Inspirational, Inspirational Country, Southern Gospel, hymns and more.
In the mid-90s, the CMI staff realized the need for a monthly Christian newspaper in the area, and started Cross Times. Cross Times is one of the only Christian newspapers being published in Nebraska and Wyoming. The newspaper is distributed free through churches in Western Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming.
CMI ministries are funded with a mix of donations and advertising. The leadership structure consists of a board of directors, a general director and an assistant director.
The ministry also plays a key role in bringing concerts and speakers to the area.
