The meaning of «vcy america»

Voice of Christian Youth America, a.k.a. VCY America, is a traditional, evangelical Christian ministry based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The VCY America Radio Network maintains a format of Christian talk and teaching, as well as traditional Christian music through all of its broadcast outlets.

Originally known as "Milwaukee Youth For Christ," and later, "Greater Milwaukee Youth For Christ," it left the national YFC organization in 1973 and became known as the Wisconsin Voice of Christian Youth (WVCY) until 1995, when it changed to its present name.

The ministry operates 29 VCY America-owned radio stations in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia, and Wisconsin and 24 low-power translators, along with operating three stations through a local marketing agreement through a debtor in possession in Las Vegas, Palm Springs and the San Francisco Bay Area, while it waits to purchase those stations out of their former owner's bankruptcy.[1] VCY America radio also provides programming such as Crosstalk, Worldview Weekend, and Music 'til Dawn to stations throughout the country via satellite.

VCY America's radio programming includes Christian Talk and Teaching programming, among them: *Crosstalk, hosted by Jim Schneider and formerly by Vic Eliason *Worldview Weekend with Brannon Howse *Grace to You with John MacArthur *In Touch with Charles Stanley *Love Worth Finding with Adrian Rogers *Revive Our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth *The Alternative with Tony Evans *Liberty Counsel's Faith and Freedom Report *Thru the Bible with J. Vernon McGee *Joni and Friends *Unshackled! *Moody Radio's Stories of Great Christians[2]

VCY America also airs a variety of vocal and instrumental traditional Christian Music, as well as children's programming such as Ranger Bill.[2] Notably, the network (including WVCY-TV) eschews any programs featuring Contemporary Christian music, and has dropped programming which has switched to it in any form, including as theme music.

The network also runs WVCY-TV (Channel 30) out of Milwaukee, which does hold a commercial license but is completely viewer/listener supported. As of January 2018, it is carried under a channel share agreement with commercial station WITI after it vacated its former independent frequency in the FCC's spectrum repack auction, the proceeds of which have been utilized to expand VCY's radio network. WVCY is also carried in the Wausau market via translator W26EE-D in Wittenburg. WVCY was notable for rejecting a 1994 offer to be purchased by the CBS Corporation in order to become the market's CBS affiliate in the wake of the 1994–1996 United States broadcast television realignment.

The ministry also operates a summer camp, near Hillsboro, Wisconsin, called, "Trail Ridge Camp"[3] as well as the "VCY Bookstore" in Milwaukee, which is also online.
