March 10, 2014

“The Power of the Holy Spirit” Generates 2,192 Viewer Responses

 “The Holy Spirit is a power, and it is a very potent power, like fire. And it has to be nurtured and ‘stirred up’ to be an effective tool that God uses to impart qualities we need for a successful life.” So said Darris McNeely in a Beyond Today episode “The Power of the Holy Spirit,” which he hosted and which aired on television networks March 2-8, 2014, in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States and on the Internet throughout the world.

In the United States alone, this United Church of God TV program generated 2,192 viewer telephone calls and Internet inquiries. This response quantity is the third highest this fiscal year and the fourth lowest in cost per response.

Additionally, the program prompted Internet responses from viewers in fourteen countries and territories including Australia, Canada, Chile, England, New Zealand, Malaysia, Nigeria, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, United States and the US Virgin Islands. So far this fiscal year we have received Beyond Today viewer responses from 80 countries and territories.

As always, we are deeply appreciative of your prayers, support and encouragement.

  1. Very good program!! Personally, I like it better when there is just one speaker and not the gathering of 3 ministers to discuss at the end!

  2. I am glad to see the invite to come to Church, find a congregation or to directly contact a minister. Makes it very apparent that there is a Church to potentially attend, and that we would like them to come!

    Although Darris was a stand alone teacher in this episode, (and I believe this personalizes it more to the viewer in making it a “one on one” relationship, having the other presenters shown at the end, and perhaps even more distinctly, possibly helps in creating an imprint that there are other presenters from the same organization, so if they tune in the next week they know that they are still viewing something from the same organization, thus creating a “flow” of presenters.
