Ronald L Dart Evangelistic Association
August 22, 2017
We are pleased to announce the formation of a new religious entity called The Ronald L. Dart Evangelistic Association (RLDEA). It is a non-profit 501c3 corporation that is not a church.
Before Allie Dart (widow of the late Ronald L. Dart) had her cancer surgeries, she arranged for the creation of the RLDEA. The RLDEA held its first meeting of the board of trustees on June 29, 2017. At the time of that board meeting, the RLDEA board of trustees was composed of Mrs. Dart, Wes White, Gary Gibbons, and Cathy Gibbons.
Mrs. Dart, over the last year of her life, decided to use a portion of the assets from her estate to fund RLDEA.
Mrs. Dart stipulated that the RLDEA’s mission statement should be the preaching of the Gospel by promoting the works of her late husband, Ronald L. Dart. And, while Mrs. Dart’s will prohibits the assets of her estate from going directly to Christian Educational Ministries (CEM), the mission of the RLDEA allows and encourages this new ministry to assist CEM as long as CEM properly and efficiently promotes Mr. Dart’s works.
The proposed assistance of the RLDEA can only be to the extent that CEM will allow it. The directors of the RLDEA have requested a meeting with the leadership of CEM so that together they can explore areas where CEM will permit the RLDEA to assist it.
The current composition of the RLDEA board of trustees is:
Wes White, president
Gary Gibbons, vice president
Cathy Gibbons, secretary-treasurer
Wes White is currently the president of Dynamic Christian Ministries, a non-profit ministry which already promotes the works of Ron Dart thru his live Friday night show called “Start Our Sabbath.” He is a graduate of Ambassador College in Pasadena, California where he served on the Ambassador faculty from 1976 to 1981. His original ordination into the ministry came from United Christian Ministries which, at the time, was headed by the late Ray Wooten.
The Gibbons are owners of GG Media, a respected, long time advertising agency and production studio in the Tyler area. Mr. Gibbon’s voice is heard on radio stations across the US. Since the inception of CEM, GG Media has produced and distributed Mr. Dart’s “Born To Win” radio program and CEM’s Friday night Bible study. GG Media has also done many gratis services for CEM.
