The Lord laid it on my heart decades ago that one day He would have me establish a national Christian TV show. I ” got my feet wet” doing the daily announcements over the intercom at my public school. Then, at 16 years of age I began to do “voice overs” for David Mainse’ new TV show “Crossroads”. Over the succeeding years I have done my own radio and TV work, some of it nationally in Israel, but I did not feel the timing right to pursue the national vision the Lord had laid on my heart. A big factor was my not wanting to “muddy the waters” by stepping into an area of ministry that was already being effectively covered by “100 Huntley Street” and “It’s a New Day”.
I had a profound sense that the Lord was calling me to act now. So I incorporated ” CANTELON CHRISTIAN COMMUNICATIONS”. Little did I know that within weeks of that incorporation the “Mainse Era” at Crossroads would end, and that “It’s a New Day” would cease production. Nor did I expect that both Vision TV and other Canadian Broadcasters would show immediate interest in my new show. But this has happened.
The vision is clear: present a thoughtful, articulate, informed Christian perspective on matters of interest to a national audience with the best guest commentators, intriguing interviews, AND a major component of effective bible teaching.
The target viewership : believers, unbelievers, seekers, and “homeless Christians”,that is, Christians who love Jesus but no longer attend church.
I also believe that the show must not only be daily on Vision TV but weekly ( Sunday am ) on CTV; so watch for that coming soon.
Facebook, Twitter, blogging, podcasting, and radio will also be engaged. We want to envelop Canada with the Gospel.
