Rory & Wendy Alec host special LIVE broadcast this weekend in Washington, D.C.
GOD TV turns 15 on October 1st and viewers across the nations will be tuning in over the next 10 days to mark this milestone in the global Christian broadcaster’s history.
GOD TV founders Rory and Wendy Alec will host the ‘GOD TV 15th Birthday Celebration’ LIVE from the network’s studios in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, September 25 at 2pm (EST) with a replay at 8pm. The program will be replayed during the course of the Birthday week and will also be available for on demand viewing on GOD TV’s website.
The fast-paced two hour program will take a look at the GOD TV’s phenomenal growth since it started broadcasting in 1995, highlighting the incredible breakthroughs the network has experienced, and will culminate in a rededication of the Channel to God. There will be greetings from best-loved GOD TV speakers and Pablo Perez will lead worship as the GOD TV family around the world gives thanks to God for His faithfulness over the past 15 years.
From October 1-3, GOD TV will screen a ‘From the Archives Weekend’ featuring a selection of best viewing over the years. This will include the flagship series: Friday Night LIVE Gold and The Rory & Wendy Show. Other old favorites to be featured include some of GOD TV's cutting-edge youth and music series: Best of Dream on TV, DK Extreme and Scene Dock.
Viewers will also be able to view highlights of GOD TV’s 5th and 10th Birthday Celebrations and see how far the network has come - from blowing out candles on the fifth birthday cake to celebrating with the hundreds of pilgrims who gathered in Israel for the network’s 10th Birthday at David’s Citadel in Jerusalem.
“We thank God for his faithfulness over the past 15 years in taking GOD TV to the nations of the world and we look forward to the next 15 years,” said GOD TV chief executive, Rory Alec. “We’re also celebrating GOD TV’s 4th anniversary in the USA, where we have such a vibrant support base. It’s our passion to build on this in the days ahead, and take the Gospel into many more broadcast platforms in America and increasing numbers of homes across the globe.”
Wendy Alec, who is GOD TV’s Director of Television, said it was a privilege for the network to have been able to broadcast a unique blend of original Christian programming since 1995. “Countless viewers have told us there is nothing like GOD TV - that it is a lifeline to them! This includes so many young people who identify with our contemporary presentation of the Gospel. People are looking for answers, for programming that’s real and relevant and we aim to produce more of this in future.”
