The World Evangelistic Enterprise Corporation was incorporated in March 1961, “to own, maintain, and operate such non-denominational Christian ministries as deemed advisable in order to propagate the Gospel wherever possible.”
The first project was Radio Station WEEC, which began gospel broadcasting on December 15, 1961. Though the Corporation has always been non-profit by design, WEEC operated its first year as a Christian commercial station.
On December 15, 1962, all commercial announcements and secular music were eliminated. From that time, approximately 80% of its programming has been Christian, and 20% Public Service and News. The station is now entirely supported by free-will contributions. An Annual SHARATHON is held each March, to raise Pledges for the next year’s operation. The Corporation is Tax Exempt, and is a qualified 501(c)(3) organization. The mission of WEEC is to glorify God by using communications technology, with excellence and integrity, to lead the lost to Jesus Christ and the Christian into a closer walk with Him.
For over 50 years WEEC has been beaming Christian and public service programs to people within a general radius of 75 miles from Springfield, Ohio. The Lord has provided funds in a marvelous way down through the years, and we praise Him for His Provision, His Salvation, and His Instruction to all of us who listen.
As part of its “world” outreach, the ministry provides partial monthly support for two missionary families, both involved with international broadcasting and communications.
The Corporation is governed by a Board of Trustees, all of whom donate their time.
World Evangelistic Enterprise Corporation is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, and audited financial statements are available upon request.
