Rory Alec co-founded GOD TV in 1995 and was the network's Chief Executive Officer for 20 years.
Rory Alec’s work as GOD TV's CEO took him around the world, establishing a global television network. This included launching GOD TV into new markets (like Hong Kong/Greater China); opening new transmitters in Africa; visiting GOD TV's regional offices (including Chennai, India) and filming reports of how Christianity is affecting specific communities.
According to Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), Alec's vision for GOD TV was "for every household in the world to receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ through media."
The Herald (Plymouth) has carried several reports about Alec's plan to turn a disused night club and cinema complex in Plymouth, England into a religious conference centre.
Born in Rustenburg, in 1968, Alec grew up in South Africa and was passionate about his musical talents - playing the drums and piano. After completing his schooling, he spent two years in the South African military and moved to Johannesburg where he became involved in the advertising industry.
The Alecs married in 1987 and established the TV commercial production house, Alec-Gene Productions. In 1991 they moved to the UK where they launched Europe's first daily faith-based TV network in 1995.
During his time at GOD TV Alec supported many community development projects, particularly in his home continent of Africa. He led mission trips to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi and South Africa, delivering aid to areas that face extreme poverty.
In July 2010, Alec visited East Africa with Pat Boone to open a community development center in Tanzania after the American singer, actor and writer partnered with GOD TV to provide foundational funding for the facility, which provides a Maasai community with much needed health services and clean water.
An orphanage Alec supports is Kondanani Children’s Village in Malawi, founded by Annie Chikhwaza which has named its Community Rehabilitation facility after him. He is also involved with the Jewish National Fund / Land of Promise Foundation and aims to plant one million trees in Israel as part of the revitalization of the Negev desert.
Alec resigned as chairman and CEO on 2 October 2014. "After 20 years of service, I have had a moral failure this year. For this reason, I am stepping down," he said. "Please forgive me for the disappointment I’ve caused. It is with a heavy heart that I confirm my season with GOD TV is over for now.”  Charisma Magazine broke the news in the media with the headline: "Citing Moral Failure, GOD TV Co-Founder Rory Alec Resigns".
