Nearly two years after Rory Alec’s moral failure rocked God TV, the broadcaster is setting new leadership in place with an eye toward revival.
GOD TV founder Wendy Alec just appointed Ward Simpson as CEO. Simpson’s installation is being positioned as a “new season” for the global network.
“I am so grateful God has brought Ward and the Simpson family into GOD TV. Their vast experience of Christian business and ministry is invaluable,” says Alec.
“With Ward as CEO I have complete faith we will enter a new season of stability, strength and success.”
Ward brings experience in both business and ministry to GOD TV. As senior executive with the Simpson Group of companies, he managed an international automobile distribution corporation.
As executive director of the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry, he was part of the leadership team in Pensacola, Florida during the Brownsville Revival.
Alec made the announcement during Missions Week, live from Orlando. She and Ward updated viewers on some of the special projects that have recently come online, including three exclusive new programs: Good News with Reinhard Bonnke, Out of Zion and Church With GOD TV.
“I am privileged to lead GOD TV into this next season,” says Ward. “I believe God has so much more ahead for the GOD TV team and our partners as we continue to touch lives around the globe.”
Simpson is originally from Barbados. He and his wife, Lydia, and their three children, Rafael, Netanya and Nathan, have lived in the United States for 20 years. He is a product of revival and has a passion to see revival fire spread across the globe.
Simpson’s appointment as CEO will enable Alec to focus more time on the programes she hosts on GOD TV and to move forward with her series of best-selling novels, the Chronicles of Brothers, which are being developed into a major, commercial television series.
