Member Spotlight: 106.3 FM - WCIF

Lee Martinez106.3 FM – WCIF (“Where Christ Is First”) has been broadcasting from the Space Coast—specifically Melbourne, FL—since March 10, 1980. WCIF is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Melbourne. As the 32 years progressed and power increases were granted, their signal now reaches into more than 20 communities of East Central Florida. Their logo is the lighthouse and their slogan, “helping you find and follow the way,” has been with them for most of those years. WCIF is a non-commercial ministry with an emphasis on sound, doctrinal teaching and encouraging music—all designed to carry listeners through whatever their days may hold. WCIF’s teaching purpose is to provide clear training and encouragement so their audience can work from their local churches into their neighborhoods and workplaces. 

Each staff member realizes the importance of their role, as four of them have been with WCIF for 19+ years. 

The Gospel message has a clear passage to every heart in their listening area in spite of the physical barriers of walls or gates. That is a humbling thought. The feedback is positive, and they are aware there are many cult followers who are considering the claims of Christ because they listen to WCIF.

Listeners to WCIF have been challenged to go beyond receiving and put feet to their growing faith. They have successfully carried WCIF through campaigns involving: Food For the Poor, Wheels For the World, Operation Christmas Child, Compassion International, Habitat For Humanity, HCJB-Turn Your Radio On, and local ministries such as The Seafarer’s Ministry.

WCIF asks for your prayers that they would remain faithful to their calling, be living examples to their audience and that they would be effective in reaching into lives with the best news a person could ever hear.

Shining the Light . . . Illuminating the Future!
