"LeSEA" is an acronym that stands for ""Le"ster "S"umrall "E"vangelistic "A"ssociation."

LeSEA Broadcasting, also known as World Harvest Television, is an American Christian television network with over 40 affiliate stations in a number of U.S. markets, on the Fixed Service Satellite Galaxy 16 C band transponder 15, and on satellite overseas.

LeSEA is based in South Bend, Indiana and broadcasts Christian programming. Two primary shows broadcast from the studios are their flagship program "The Harvest Show" and "Live from Studio B". Pete Sumrall, son of the network's founder the late Dr. Lester Sumrall, serves as its president and chief executive officer.

"The Harvest Show", a one-hour talk show which has a format that is somewhat similar to the Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club" and is hosted by Kelly Morgan, Stefan Radelich, Debra Maffett, and Chuck Freeby. Guests have included Millard Fuller, Dominic Mance, Michael Landon, Jr. and Susie Scott Krabacher. Some of the program hosts serve other functions within the organization; Radelich is executive director of one of the LeSEA ministries, Feed The Hungry.

"Live from Studio B" is a 30-minute in-studio concert show from studio B, which features performances from various contemporary and alternative Christian artists and bands. They have hosted such artists as Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, the late Rich Mullins, Newsboys and others.

Also, like TBN, FamilyNet and participating local stations, LeSEA airs "The 700 Club" every weekday. And overnights each weekend, they air "The Best of Harvest", a rebroadcast of a previously-aired program. In addition to its many LeSEA-owned stations, network television affiliates in different parts of the country began airing "The Best of Harvest" and "Live from Studio B" among different programs from LeSEA. At other times the output consists of shows such as ('Green Acres', 'Hawaii Five-0' etc.), paid advertising (such as for animated Christian children's cartoon series available on various video formats, health supplements and products, etc.).
