We are very pleased to announce that the United Church of God will expand its reach to additional television viewers in the United States and many nations around the world through a Christian/Family network operated by LeSEA Broadcasting (www.lesea.com).

It can also be seen on Digital 2 broadcast via LeSEA’s independent stations in Colorado Springs, Colorado; Honolulu, Hawaii; Indianapolis, Indiana; New Orleans, Louisiana; South Bend, Indiana; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. (A full broadcast log will be published soon on the Beyond Today website and in The Good News magazine).

Based in Cyprus, this 28-year old station is available in every television home in Israel via cable and over-the-air. It also reaches a potential audience of 200 million viewers in 22 Muslim countries—from Iran to Egypt and from Turkey to Saudi Arabia.

Our telecasts will be subscripted in Arabic at no additional cost to the Church. Middle East Television is popular with U.S. troops stationed in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Since it is one of the only American-owned broadcast facilities in the region, it also carries the NFL, NASCAR, NCAA college sports, the PGA tour and other prominent sporting events.

Far East Television

Finally, also starting July 8, Beyond Today will air on LeSEA Broadcasting’s “Family Entertainment Television” channel, Far East Television (www.fetv.tv). This will be every Sunday at 8:00 a.m. GMT+2 via satellite on Intelsat 10. Our programs will reach viewers in nations throughout Asia and Europe, including Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and many more. Our programs will also be seen in many countries throughout the African continent.

See all country listings at www.fetv.tv/Satellite-Coverage.cfm. It totals 135 countries at present. Far East Television has a potential audience of 4.3 billion people, equaling about 60% of the world’s population. Beyond Today will follow a very popular Asian televangelist, Joseph Prince, which places our programs in a position to spread the gospel to his large audience.

We hope you are as pleased as we are by these excellent, new opportunities to reach many additional viewers throughout the world with the good news of God’s soon coming Kingdom. Thank you for your ongoing, diligent prayers for His vital blessings on all of the Church’s expanding media efforts.

Of course it could only be done with God’s hand and blessings to acomplish His work. I am so greatful that He allows me to be a part of it.
    This is just wonderful, exciting, overwhelming, amazing.

  4. Thank you for working on this matter to forward our ‘Cry from the Wilderness’ !! I am soooo excited about this forward move for the Church of GOD. Hats off to all that had their hands in prayer towards this matter to move forward. Wait now and watch what this new venue brings to the ears of those that are ‘crying for relief and comfort for peace and more peace’. Stand still and watch now at what happens for the doors are opening much wider now. Make yourselves right before God and get yourselves ready for the harvest. We are are going to really work hard NOW!!! Thank you all and let’s do it! They are waiting for us to get it right !

  10. Our Geat Commision given to us by Christ: Matthew 28:18-20 [Make disciples of all nations (and all means all) nations…Teaching them to observe (not just to note, but also to obey) all things that I (Christ) have commanded you. The twofold commision of the CHURCH of GOD: Preaching the Gospel and Preparing a people.

    Part of the Gospel is a Warning Message: Ezekiel 3:16-21 This has to be done until the end. It’s not over until Christ returns.

    God can do it with, or without us: Luke 19:40 The message we preach to the World is a warning message, and also a healing message. The world is in desperate need of being healed, and it needs to be warned that things are going to get much worse until the day Christ returns to put His major healing process in place.

    Thankfully the United Church of God is preaching this Gospel, the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, to all the World. Our job is to support the preaching of the Gospel any way we can as the Church goes forward. We can individually preach the Gospel thru our efforts, it takes the whole body of disciples, and the Beyond Today Presentors along with others on our website are the mouth (written and verbal). What a great blessing to be on the ground floor of what’s taking place.

  11. I am sure there are 1,000 of thanks going to Our Father today for this great opportunity and for the men and women who have been willing to put their hearts and hands to the task of preaching the gospel in this great way. Thank you.

  13. As Mr. Bill Winner, a long-time minister in God’s Church would say if he were still alive, ” This , brethren, is ASTOUNDING” ! He would be so pleased. Also, my own thoughts on this wonderful news : This is one of the most incredible acts by our GREAT GOD that I’ve been allowed to witness in my 34 years as a member of His Church. To be able to preach the gospel message of the soon- coming Kingdom of God in the Middle East among nations that will soon comprise the confederated nations that the King of the South will be head of {Psalms chapter 83} sends chills up my spine !
    Thank you so much my fellow servants of God for your steadfast and unshakeable leadership and efforts to continue to serve Jesus Christ and all of us brethren. And thanks also to all who work behind the scenes as well. This is truly the work of the Living God and He is well pleased.
