KSBJ is a non-commercial Contemporary Christian music radio station based in Humble, Texas, broadcasting on 89.3 MHz FM in the Greater Houston area. KSBJ Educational Foundation is a Christ-centered, non-profit, listener-supported radio ministry. They are followers of Jesus Christ, Son of God, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures. As a listener-supported Christian station, we’re able to focus on creating the kind of radio that encourages listeners not only to "sing along, but live along with us," and impact lives for Christ.

Consistently certified as a “Best Christian Workplace,” KSBJ is a ministry of integrity governed by a group of volunteer men and women from across the Greater Houston area, who serve as the Board of Directors. The board members represent diverse denominations, backgrounds and professions to provide oversight, direction and accountability for the ministry. Once a year, during Sharathon, they take three days to ask listeners to supply the budget for the next fiscal year. They're members in good standing of the Evangelical Council on Financial Accountability (ECFA) due to our adherence to the highest standards of stewardship.
