Chamber Business of the Week

By Abby Hess, Quill Staff Writer

The Greater West Plains Area Chamber of Commerce Business of the Week is Faith Enterprises.

Faith Enterprises has provided technology and communications services since 2002 to the West Plains and rural communities; since 2005, it has been located at 1001 W. Broadway in West Plains.

Roger Wernsing, who co-owns the business with his wife Becky, said the company serves between 40 and 50 counties in Missouri and Arkansas, specializing in rural high-speed internet. Faith Enterprises offers rural service through Viasat Communications, a provider of military communications and defense department strategies since 1982, said Wernsing.

“We are one of the top 50 dealers in the country and have 300 to 400 satellite jobs every month that we do,” he explained. “We have about 15 to 20 techs and inside personnel that we supply jobs to on a regular basis.”

Faith Enterprises has a fleet of about 10 Viasat/Exede vehicles driven by technicians responding to calls for service throughout the company’s coverage area. In addition to offering Viasat/Exede internet services, the company is an authorized DirectTV dealer and provides sales and service for home televisions, said Wernsing. Faith Enterprises is certified in security systems, offering both monitored and unmonitored alarm systems and camera surveillance systems for commercial and residential use.

“We are always looking for qualified individuals to join our team, both outside technical-based and inside sales and clerical workers,” said Wernsing, adding that part- and full-time opportunities are available. “Come see us!”

The company’s hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
