KTIS-FM (98.5 FM) is a contemporary Christian music formatted radio station located in Minneapolis, Minnesota owned and operated by Northwestern College (renamed in 2013 as University of Northwestern-Saint Paul)..

KTIS is a non-profit radio station, receiving most of its donations and contributions from its listeners. The station is also aired on low-powered translators outside of its main listening area. The station's programming is also streamed on the Internet.

KTIS hosts many different service projects and activities with which to better the community, such as the "Drive Thru Difference" and the web application PrayerWorks, which lets users submit prayer requests to be viewed by other users. The other users can then send a notification to the person who first submitted the request, letting them know that their prayer has been prayed.
