To say that TLNWest is more than just another TV channel is not just an idle slogan. It’s a life changing difference. I know because I’ve been in the “other” television world.
My first eleven years were in commercial TV. It was there that I gained the experience necessary for my later ministry in Christian TV. Among my experiences during those eleven years was as Program Director for a broadcast network station. It was there that I learned why the Total Living Network is not just another TV channel.
While the viewers were important to the management of the broadcast network channel, in truth they were simply a means to an end. As Program Director, I had to be more concerned about meeting the needs of the advertising agencies than our viewers in their homes. It was the agencies, after all, who paid our bills. We worked hard to have the largest viewership so that we could package the data according to demographics and sell it to the ad agencies at a cost per thousand. As a viewer of that broadcast network station, you were simply a means to a profitable end and little more. Management certainly had no concern for your emotional or spiritual well-being.
And – that is the difference. That’s why TLNWest is more than just another TV channel. With my transition to Christian television came a radical shift in emphasis. The viewer was important. In fact you were, and continue to be, the reason for TLNWest’s existence. You are our mission. Our mission statement makes it clear: “To direct people to Christ and provide resources for spiritual growth through electronic media.”
• TLNWest’s programming is designed to bring a message of hope through the saving power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
• It is designed to comfort, enrich, inspire and inform.
• We want to be there for people who want spiritual nourishment every single day.
• We want to help people understand their need for Jesus Christ.
• And we want to be a light in a darkened world, standing for biblical truth.
That is why we are much more than just another TV channel.
Because we are different, we depend on your prayers and generous support for our existence. As we begin a new year and new decade, we face a year of incredible opportunity and serious challenges, and we need your help.
I would like to ask you to prayerfully consider a monthly gift of $15 per month. Some can commit to $25 per month; others to $100 per month or more. It will make a difference in our future and will be a blessing to many others who depend on TLNWest for spiritual strength and nourishment. The world today is in a turmoil of moral confusion, and I believe TLNWest is needed more than ever. Our future depends on the prayers and generosity of our viewers – viewers just like you. You really do make a difference.
Help us continue to be more than just another TV channel. Thank you and may God richly bless you.
A Note From Our President – From My Heart to Yours
My experience is slightly different than Jerry’s. I began to work in media ministry because I wanted to impact as many people as possible with the life-changing message of Christ. That goal has not changed and we continue to see how God uses the complex venue of broadcast, cable and internet platforms to reach the lost and offer valuable spiritual support to Christ-followers. TLNWest is more than just a TV channel. It is an opportunity to grow in the knowledge of our Savior and move forward in purpose! As we enter a new decade, we want to invite you to join TLNWest in strengthening our commitment to Christ in a couple of different ways.
First, during the week of January 20-24, 2020, TLNWest will provide an opportunity to join with other believers in uplifting praise and concentrated prayer for the things that matter to us most. Join us for five days of focused prayer & praise because we know that God answers prayer and that He inhabits the praises of His people.
We’ll offer thanks for our own salvation and prayer for those who do not yet know Christ. We’ll lift up our family and friends and pray for their needs. We’ll offer praise for God’s touch and pray for health and healing. We’ll pray for increased ministry impact locally and globally. We’ll lift up freedom of religion, violence, racial tensions in our communities and nation, and more.
Let’s join together in this initial month of the new decade and dedicate one week to collective, powerful prayer!
As we join together to launch this decade in a week of collective, powerful prayer, if you would like to submit prayer requests prior to our January 20-24 Prayer Week:
