For Such a Time as This

For Such a Time as This
Friday, May 1, 2020 / Matt and Laurie Crouch

You and TBN Offer Jesus to an Anxious World.

 
The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything most of us have ever experienced. In just a few short months, the novel coronavirus has turned life upside down worldwide. Quarantines have become a part of life for billions of people. Routines and familiarity have been replaced with fear and anxiety about the future.
 
News reports have described the situation as unprecedented, and it is, both physically and spiritually. You see, rarely have so many people— entire nations—entered a season of spiritual seeking all at once.
 
A deserted street during the COVID-19 pandemic.In the uncertainty, they are looking for answers and comfort to ease their worry, and your TBN is ready. Together, we are uniquely positioned to bring our world the hope and grace of Jesus. Even as people across the globe have been isolated from their loved ones and unable to meet in their churches, we are here, sending God’s Word into homes and believing for a spiritual awakening in 2020.
 
In a very real sense, God has been preparing us as a TBN family “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). From the beginning, our mission has been to bring the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every corner of the earth.
 
TBN went “on the air” on May 28, 1973, with a single, low-power TV station. We were limited to just a few hours a day, and programming was homemade and snowy. But God was at work. The content was compelling, and the message of the Gospel spread through the airwaves, changing lives and equipping the saints.
 

TBN’s programs and programmers are available around the world at a time when people of all ages and races most

need the hope and grace of Jesus Christ.

 
It’s awe-inspiring to see the numerous television stations, transmitters, satellite transponders, and now vast online presence that friends and partners like you have made possible. TBN’s programs and programmers are available around the world at a time when people of all ages and races most need the hope and grace of Jesus Christ.

 

EVERY NATION

Since the launch of that single TBN channel, we’ve grown until there are now more than 30 distinct networks. These include JCTV Pakistan and Lighthouse Television Uganda, among the many networks in other countries. A search of TBN’s website shows the variety of global networks, and the languages spoken in service to the Gospel and Jesus-honoring programming now include Arabic, Russian, French, Italian, Swedish, Polish, Spanish, and many more.
 

... we will continue to use compelling content and every available distribution means necessary to spread the Good News of Jesus to every continent and every nation—even in the midst of crisis!

 
The mission of TBN will never change: We will continue to partner with our audience, and we will continue to use compelling content and every available distribution means necessary to spread the Good News of Jesus to every continent and every nation—even in the midst of crisis!

 

EVERY GENERATION

Christine CaineParents and families; children, young adults, and the elderly around the world have been looking for comfort in these uncertain times. And many are connected socially in ways others of us aren’t. In fact, a large percentage of the world’s population doesn’t even watch television. They are watching on computers, tablets, and phones.
 
That’s why we’ve focused on presenting the best faith content possible through every medium possible. Whether on our video-on-demand platform (watch.tbn.tv) or through social media or live streaming, you’ll find Dr. David Jeremiah, T.D. Jakes, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Jentezen Franklin, Steven Furtick, and many more are delivering teaching that ministers to all age groups.
 
 
What’s more, we are creating original content with programs like Jesus the Game Changer, Huckabee, and John Gray World to reach new audiences of seekers and Believers alike. Even for those without faith, the inspiring and entertaining content TBN provides is a welcomed change from the barrage of news updates that can so easily discourage.
 

... similar to the spread of Christianity, the TBN distribution network now reaches every inhabitable continent.

As you know, this year, we launched The State of Faith 2020 project, a multifaceted cinematic achievement documenting the historic spread of Christianity to the ends of the earth. And, similar to the spread of Christianity, the TBN distribution network now reaches every inhabitable continent. Today and every day, we have the ability to spread the Gospel over the airwaves, through space, across closed borders, and through the internet. And the upgrade continues to high definition in many places. As we produce an expanding variety of quality content that reaches a more diverse audience, we are also expanding the means of distribution.
 

 

 

 

NOW MORE THAN EVER

TBN is here for you, and for the lost of our world, in this unprecedented time, bringing teachers and ministers into your home to encourage and strengthen your faith. Plus, we are going a step further. We’ve offered support and instruction for online streaming to pastors and leaders of local churches who are unable to meet with their congregations in person.
 
Robert Morris
Even when we cannot collectively gather within the four walls of the local church, we can be the Church, sharing the Good News with a world that desperately needs it. As of the time we’re writing this letter to you, we are also making resources available that are designed to help strengthen your faith in challenging times. Visit tbn.org/offers and let us share these encouraging, hope-filled teachings with you!
 

We know there are no limits to what God can do through us when we follow Him in faith and obedience.

 

 

 

Samuel Rodriguez

This truly is a “we” effort, as it has been from day one. But today, the world needs Christ’s message of restoration more than ever before. We know there are no limits to what God can do through us when we follow Him in faith and obedience. As we walk through the doors He opens, no audience is out of reach!

 

… the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4). … for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith (1 John 5:4).

 

 

Let’s be bold and aggressive about lifting up the Name of Jesus. Fear and uncertainty won’t keep us from bringing in this harvest of souls. Let’s trust God and be courageous and generous! Thank you for your prayers and support!
