JCTV to Launch New Urban Music Show, 'Stir it Up'
Officials at JCTV, Trinity Broadcasting Network’s (TBN) youth and action sports network, announced that JCTV will launch it’s newest addition to the network, "Stir It Up" -- a groundbreaking show that seeks to stir up Christianity by taking God out of the box and into the streets through music, lifestyle discussions, and special guest performances. Stir It Up’s structure brings the same intensity and edginess that viewers see on other music networks into a faith-based setting.
Hosted by Vonnie B-a key producer, singer, and songwriter of the gospel music industry-the show’s concept was developed to teach young people how to incorporate God in every day life. Vonnie B says she envisioned the show’s mission after hearing a young man’s plea for something that represents the younger generation’s relationship with Christ.
"Many of our young adults feel disillusioned with the church and religious organizations," said Vonnie B. "By taking tradition out of religion, the show will speak to those believers who want to worship God in spirit and in truth without isolating their individual faiths."
"We are extremely delighted to add this show to our overall lineup," said Mark McCallie, Vice President of Programming at JCTV. "After four years of broadcasting Christian-themed shows targeted to young viewers, it is a blessing to make room for yet another cutting-edge program that will inspire, motivate, and transform lives," said McCallie.
Bursting at the seams with real talk, comedic and live performances from gospel artists such as Kiki Sheard, Third Day, and Kirk Franklin, the show’s formula for success will definitely stir up many in the Christian community.
"Both the Christian and secular world are in need of an outlet that transcends the boundaries placed by orthodox religion," said Pastor Donald E. Battle, pastor and co-founder of Divine Faith Ministries International. "This show will be the very embodiment of the purpose God has placed on our lives-to introduce Him to those seeking His promise and comfort outside the spiritual realm."
"Stir It Up" is another example of JCTV’s commitment to present the best-of-the-best in faith and family based programming," said Susan Zahn, TBN’s press agent.
Launched in 2002 by Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), JCTV features 24 hours of faith-based programming that includes reality shows, music videos, game shows, talk shows relevant to youth, comedy, extreme sports, movies, and more. To learn more, visit www.jctv.org.
