"Twenty-five years ago, I became aware of World Christian Broadcasting and was favorably impressed with WCBs mission and the dedication and talents of its staff.  Those first impressions remain true today.  It is most exciting to know that WCB is now broadcasting from Alaska and Madigascar and is able to reach the entire world with the gospel. WCB broadcasts also assist and inform listeners in a variety of other ways."

"World Christian Broadcasting is a God granted and blessed opportunity to carry out the Great Commission given to us by Jesus. One of my greatest spiritual feelings was standing underneath the enormous towers that support the antennas  from which the world can hear the good news.  It is estimated that our programmed broadcasts now have the capability of being heard by 90 per cent of the world's population. Is there a better way for sowing the seeds of the gospel?"

"If we are ever to reach the world for Christ, this is a proven way. Nearly everyone on God's planet will soon be able to hear the word of Jesus preached. This effort is certainly the 21st century Pearl of Great Price in world evangelism (Matt 13:46). World Christian Broadcasting is not talking about it - we're doing it!"

"Not only is World Christian Broadcasting a worldwide organization, it is a world class organization, committed to excellence in everything it undertakes.  At this moment in history, two people die every second who have never heard the name of Jesus--World Christian's business is to take Jesus to the world so everyone can hear His message."

  J. Lee

Chairman, Old Hickory Clay Company, Paducah, Kentucky

"Sharon and I support WCB because we believe that we have a responsibility to 'make a difference' in this world. Although we stay busy in our family and professional lives at home, we want to actively support a ministry that is actually making things happen in global evangelism, not just talking the talk. We believe that WCB is doing just that. The Indian Ocean project will allow the gospel to be broadcast into most of the areas of the world that have previously been unreachable for this ministry. We are especially interested in the specific work of broadcasting directly into predominantly Muslim countries in their native tongue the good news about Jesus Christ where political and physical barriers have severely limited its presentation up until now..."
