About this project

PLEASE PLAY THE VIDEO ABOVE FIRST. It gives lots of detail. Basically, Arts for the Community, Inc., a 501(c)3 group is starting an all-volunteer Non-Profit Christian radio station in central Florida. We will broadcast from facilities in the Sparr, FL area, which is just north of Ocala, FL. We are licensed by the FCC as WTYG (We Thank You God) at 91.5 FM. We plan to offer a wide variety of music and message shows not available on other Christian stations in the area. We will be broadcasting 24/7 and feature nationally known personalities interspersed with locally-produced programming, a national news service and weather updates throughout the day. We are putting together the station at the present time and hope to be on the air before the end of November. We were awarded the construction permit by the FCC nearly three years ago, but we were called by God to minister through the production of a Christian movie and that has taken most of our time. We have very little time to get the station on the air before the permit expires, so we're asking for your help. The video explains in detail our business background, but basically we have operated businesses for the past 35 years, from video rental stores, one hour photo stores to pager and cellular stores and a local home telephone company. We still have a number of pieces of equipment for the radio studio that we need to purchase and you can be a big blessing in that regard. We have programming now on our website and will also be simulcasting our station when it is operational at wtygfm.com. Give us a listen and hit the Pledge button! Pass it on too! Help us get God’s good message out. You will be blessed!
