TBN’s Nejat Network Taking Good News to World’s Persian Peoples
LOS ANGELES (August 3, 2012) — What began as the vision of one Iranian-American pastor to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the Farsi speaking peoples of Iran and the Middle East has grown into a global television network broadcasting Christian programming to Persian viewers the world over.
Officially launched in 2006 by Pastor Reza Safa and the Trinity Broadcasting Network, today TBN Nejat TV is broadcasting the life-changing message of the gospel to tens of millions of viewers in Iran and the Middle East, Europe, the U.S., and elsewhere via broadcast, cable, satellite, and the Internet.
“As Iran and the Middle East are heating up, TBN Nejat TV is there, broadcasting the message of God’s love and salvation, and we are seeing many Muslims coming to Christ,” said Pastor Safa. “This is a time of great harvest, not only for Iran, but for the Muslim world and beyond.”
Pastor Safa noted that with nearly 80 percent of the Iranian population having access to satellite television, TBN Nejat reaches a potential 75 million individuals in this Muslim country each day. Millions more Farsi speaking individuals can view TBN Nejat via satellite in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and other areas neighboring Iran, he said, meaning that nearly 110 million potential viewers have access to this life-changing channel in the Middle East.
“Add to that our presence in Europe, the U.S., and elsewhere through cable, satellite, and the Internet,” he said, “and it is clear that TBN Nejat TV is reaching Persian individuals, families, and communities all over the earth with the gospel message.”
Every day TBN Nejat offers programs that are changing lives, including This Is Your Day with Benny Hinn, Ed Young’s The Winning Way, Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural, and Mark Chironna’s Master’s Touch — all broadcast in the Farsi language. There are also programs geared especially toward Muslims, like Dr. Nasir Sadikki’s Winning With Wisdom and Living Hope with Ellie and Sourik Davidian.
“TBN Nejat TV is one of our most impacting networks, reaching Iran and the Muslim world for Christ,” said TBN’s founder and president Dr. Paul Crouch. “This is what Christian television is all about, and why TBN exists — to reach every people group with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. We’re excited to be a part.”
