About The Encouraging Word with Don Wilton
1955: A group of First Baptist Spartanburg church deacons were passionate about sharing truth and wanted to expand the reach of the ministry God had given them. 120 men pledged $2 a week so the morning service could be televised.
1956: First Baptist Spartanburg church began televising services locally.
2004: Building on the original generosity of 120 men, a new non-profit organization was created separately from First Baptist Spartanburg church. The mission was “to glorify God by teaching and preaching the message of Christ to all we can, by every available means, in such a way that people accept Christ and become active followers of Jesus through a local Christian Church.”
On Easter Sunday 2005 The Encouraging Word national broadcast ministry began. Each week tens of thousands of people tuned in to hear the consistent life-changing message of Don Wilton as he shared God’s Truth without compromise introducing them to Jesus Christ.
Today, The Encouraging Word with Don Wilton is still building upon the legacy of 2005, by following God’s direction to continue to expand its reach through radio and television broadcasts around the globe.
