Our Commitment

KNEO Radio is committed to use the voice that God has given us to honor and glorify Him and to help further His kingdom purposes in the day in which we now live. With the ability to reach a populated area of over 600,000 people in the 4-state area and the ability to also reach millions more around the world via the internet, KNEO realizes we have a voice that is greater than most church congregations and we are committed to fulfilling God's plans that He has for this ministry. We consider it a great honor that God has chosen us to represent Him and be about His business here on the Earth at this time and in this season. KNEO will not back down from spreading the truth, we will always be moving forward and seeking God's council daily until He decides to make an adjustment. This radio ministry is not about our labors but about God's plans being fulfilled. We are radio that impacts the future.

Our Accountability

KNEO Radio continues to grow, and as we do we want to always assure our donors and sponsors that we consider your support valuable. KNEO is governed by a Board of Directors, and from the Board we have selected a finance committee that oversees the entire cash low of this ministry. This committee goes through a four-step process that acts as a check and balance system for the ministry.
Each May an audit is conducted at KNEO by a local CPA firm. This is just another way to make sure your gifts and donations are being handled properly.
KNEO is also a member of the Missouri Broadcasters Association, and we pay for a mock inspection every 2-3 years to make sure all of our operating procedures are in line with what the FCC expects.
We are also members of the National Religious Broadcasters Association, which requires its members to operate in complete integrity. We realize that we are not only accountable to you and others for how we operate, but we are watched by a much greater, heavenly authority to whom we will have to give an account someday.

Our Vision

Vision can change, and may need to be altered, but its the values that always need to stay the same. Our values are based on the Word of God which never changes.

1. Without vision we can't address the future!

2. Without vision we won't accomplish our purposes for being here!

3. Without vision many people will perish in their sins if we don't show them the way out!

4. Without a vision many Christians will struggle where they are at and never get above where they could have been!

5. With a vision of what God sees, there is hope in a bright future. Lives will be impacted throughout the world where God gives us influence. If we will be faithful to our call, stay focused on God's plan for the future, and dedicated to the place where God has put us to impact people for the cause of Christ, great things will happen.

6. With vision, we can help others get involved in the task they were called to do. Because of that, Heaven will become larger and we can be assured of hearing, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
