WCSG, Cornerstone University’s radio station received a resounding affirmation from its listeners last week as more 1,400 donors committed more than $1,000,000 for the ministry’s new home.
Prior to the week-long drive, WCSG had raised nearly 80% of the estimated 5.74 million dollars needed for the project since the project’s official launch in February of 2017. Dr. Stowell, president of Cornerstone University, said, “This is a blessing to our radio team who has worked for decades in substandard conditions without complaint. The success underscores the effective ministry that WCSG continues to provide to thousands of listeners.”
Chris Lemke, executive director of WCSG, added, “We are immeasurably grateful for the favor of God on this project since its beginning. We say on the air, ‘It takes a team to encourage the thousands we do together.’ This past week is yet more evidence of God’s rich blessing through our listening family.”
According to Lemke, the building will be completely redone inside and out with all new equipment, electrical wiring, plumbing, HVAC, furniture, and a whole new outside look. Groundbreaking for the building is set to begin this fall, with completion of the rebuild before the end of 2020.
The station, presently located on the East Beltline on the campus’s northeast corner, will move to the campus’s southeast corner at the East Beltline and Bradford St intersection. Two years ago, the university gave the green light for WCSG to do a major renovation to the empty church now there. Learn about the project when you visit https://mywcsg.org/project-2020.
