Don’t forget that beginning on Sunday, July 11, 2010, our 30-minute Beyond Today television program will air on WGN America television, in 209 U.S. media markets, reaching a potential audience of 75 million U.S. households.. This includes every large and small city in the country except Chicago. Our program will be seen simultaneously at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time, 7:30 a.m. Central, 6:30 a.m. Mountain and 5:30 a.m. Pacific.

This Sunday’s program is titled, “Getting Control of Your Money,” hosted by Gary Petty with guests Darris McNeely and Steve Myers.

Please see the list of Designated Market Areas which shows the areas where our programs will be viewed. WGN’s family-friendly programming can reach almost 200 million people, 24-hours a day, every day.

Please pray for our new television planning. Your prayerful support, concern and encouragement are very much needed and appreciated. As you’ve heard preached during your years in God’s Church, “The Church of God moves forward on its knees.” So, please add this new initiative to your daily prayer life.

  1. With regards to the WGN miraculous door opening…
    I have heard it said and seen in print that this was a “miraculous” door that opened, but I have not heard how this came to happen?
    How did God intervene in providing this for us?
    I would love to see how God opened the door, please share it with us.
    I’m concerned at the cost per response. Will we be tracking this information and sharing it with the brethren?

  2. Is there an international station available that would provide global connections?

    What about web TV connections like HULU?

  3. Peter–

    Your intent is good but your request(please pray for our new television planning”, to say the least, is vague.

    Which requests do you wish us to make for your “new television planning”?

    More specifically:

    Who in your “new television planning” needs which prayerful support?

    What priority should we give whichever specific areas of your “new television planning” that need prayerful support?

    Where does your “new television planning” intend to go with this venture?

    When and how will you expect to know whether your “new television planning” is accomplishing whatever objectives you intended?

    As you and everyone else forge ahead with your “new television planning” you presume a level of understanding and comprehension that is neither validated by the experience of TV programming by UCGIA Inc nor detailed in specificity such as I indicated above.

    If neither you nor we have any clear idea of where you intend to go with this new venture then how will either we or you know when we arrive there or even if we are making any progress in the correct direction?

  4. In the spirit of king David, the WORK will move forward on its knees as you have said. “Unto You will I cry, O LORD my rock, be not silent to me, lest, if You be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto You, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy oracle………..BECAUSE THEY REGARD NOT THE WORKS OF THE LORD, NOR THE OPERATION OF HIS HANDS, HE SHALL DESTROY THEM, AND NOT BUILD THEM UP. Blessed be the LORD, because He has heard the voice of my supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped, therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him. The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed. Save Your people, and bless Your inheritance, feed them also, and lift them up forever (Ps 28:1-9).” And in another place, “Isaiah also crieth concerning Israel, though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved, FOR HE WILL FINISH THE WORK, AND CUT IT SHORT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, BECAUSE A SHORT WORK WILL THE LORD MAKE UPON THE EARTH (Rom. 9:27-28).”

  5. I like the new format where it is 2 parts monologue (like the old WT telecasts) and then 1 part dialogue. With the final dialogue part it would be great if you could have other guest ministers involved with that like we used to.

    Traditionally prophetic messages have pulled in the highest responses and I suspect this is why Living with their Tomorrow’s World telecast do prophectic subjects with over 70% of their messages. Comparatively if you look at our program archives about 25% of our telecasts are on prophetic subjects. I feel this percentage is about half what it should be.

    It is with the online and print material that we connect them to on the program where we draw them along the biblical knowledge path. The telecast is mainly for the initial drawing in of viewers and this is why I feel the telecast should focus more on the subject matter that “hooks” people in.

    I’m a little baffed by the comment “This includes every large and small city in the country except Chicago.” Why not Chicago since WGN broadcasts out of Chicago?

    • Hi Roger,

      WGN Chicago has a completely different program lineup to WGN America. It has to be purchased separately, and usually for a different time slot.

  6. I’m looking forward to more video or animation segments interspersed in the broadcast to go with the monologue.
    True, this is probably harkening back to the World Tomorrow tv program, but when it was at it’s best the presenter would explain some profound point from scripture and then a video segment would follow to dramatically illustrate the point.
    A perferct example is to discuss Matthew 24:21-22 and then run a clip of a thermonuclear explosion …. and the nuclear winter to follow.
