A God-Given Channel
December 1, 2008 – 3ABN Russia 24-hour Internet channel is launched.
Near the end of the first decade of the new millennium, the supply of the programs we produced had outpaced the broadcasters' demand. The overall number of programs, including theological ones, was experiencing a steady growth while the number of channels that aired our programming remained basically the same. Under normal circumstances, this would usually signify the beginning of a decline.
However, contrary to all economic laws, our video production did not slow down. Programs were taped averaging 20 a month by early 2008 and 30 a month in late 2008 and into 2009.
Having plenty of opportunities in store, the network's true Owner stepped in when the low demand put our programs at risk of piling up.
As a result, demand for our programs skyrocketed. Many of our programs debuted on TBN, CNL, Hope Channel, and Bible Lighthouse.
However, a new stage of 3ABN Russia's history was marked by launching a 24-hour Internet channel. Now, all of our programs can reach the viewing audience very rapidly. God has taken care of what was viewed as a glut of television and radio programs and put them to work reaching the Russian-speaking world with His special messages.
