Ben Powell named Planned Giving Officer

Ben Powell, Vice President for Finance and Chief Financial Officer, has also become the Planned Giving Officer for World Christian Broadcasting. Powell’s responsibilities as CFO will continue. This added designation is made to emphasize the importance of this role to the health and future of the organization.

Charles Caudill, President, made this announcement to be effective as of March 1, 2015. Caudill stated, “Ben Powell is an outstanding financial professional and we are glad that he has agreed to add these duties to his work as chief financial officer. Ben has already been assisting donors with many planned giving activities. Recognizing that so many people delay making these decisions, we are happy to have someone on staff who can assist our friends with this important task. At this particular stage of our history, we believe it is critical that we make his services available to all interested donors.”

Powell joined the staff of World Christian Broadcasting in 2006 as the Chief Financial Officer. He graduated from Abilene Christian University and later received a Master’s degree in finance and economics. His professional background has been financial related. He has served churches and faith-based organizations with financial matters or estate planning since 1980. He was designated as a Fellow in Charitable Estate Planning in 2011.

As the Planned Giving Officer for World Christian Broadcasting, Powell will be available to assist donors in several areas. He can give estate planning guidance in a strict, confidential manner. While his guidance is not a legal opinion, his training and experience can be very helpful to individuals as they plan their own estate for end-of-life issues. People who work with Powell typically are ready to finalize their estate plan with specific objectives firmly in mind. He will help them formulate their plan from their personal values and desires.

Donors of World Christian Broadcasting are encouraged to contact Ben Powell if they would like to learn more about how they can take advantage of this complimentary service. He will be happy to explain the benefits and convenience of this procedure. This service is provided at no cost to the donors and supporters of World Christian Broadcasting. No other services or products will be offered to the donor. There is absolutely no obligation to complete any of the plan or recommendations that the donor may receive.

February 2015 Newsletter





World Christian Broadcasting’s annual benefit dinner, held April 23, was informative, challenging, and just plain fun.  Andy Baker relayed the news that the hundreds of guests had been waiting for: our 5-year wait is over.  The two 100,000 watt transmitters have made the long trip, and are finally in the dock ready to be transported to our station in the Indian Ocean.  

In a matter of just a few months, those transmitters will be sending out programming in Arabic, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, and two editions of English (International English and English-for-Africa).  With the flip of a switch, roughly 90% of the world’s population will be under the sound of our voice. 

“What?” some will ask.  “Shortwave?  Don’t you know that everybody in the world has the Internet?  Why do shortwave?”  According to an article on the front page of the Wall Street Journal the day before our dinner, April 22, 2015, roughly 2/3 of the global population is still without Internet access.  And according to the latest research, “The race to bring the next billion online could take longer than many executives think.”  And of course AM & FM radio are available only in the centers of population.  That means the only outside voice billions hear is still shortwave radio. 

And there’s no doubt about it—“shortwave delivers the greatest bang for the buck” of any existing media.  Andy Baker repeated several times that a gift of $1.00 to World Christian Broadcasting will take the message of Jesus to 1,000 people for one year.  The next morning the 5-year-old in the photo above, grandson of World Christian Broadcasting founder Lowell Perry, gave his grandmother four quarters and instructed her, “Give these to Mr. Andy so he can tell people about Jesus.”   

Would you like to donate $1.00 to tell 1000 people about Jesus for a year?  Or $100 to tell 100,000 people about Jesus for a year?  Click here and praise God for the godly impact you will be making!
