Miami, Florida, United States
The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Inter-America officially launched its three new television channels last week during a special program held at the church’s headquarter office in Miami, Florida, United States.
Officials from the Hope Channel and top Inter-American Division (IAD) leaders took part in the special one-hour ceremony that saw Hope Channel Inter-America air its English, Spanish and French channels on satellite, the web and on Roku.
“As we launch Hope Channel Inter-America, we want to let the world know that Jesus is coming soon,” said Israel Leito, president of the church in Inter-America. “We want this message to be proclaimed in every home, every culture, every major language here,” he added.
The channels will aim to inform, teach and effect changes in people’s lives within their own culture and context in the IAD territory, added Pastor Leito.
Derek Morris, president of Hope Channel Inc., was joined by Gabriel Begle, vice president of production and programming, Gideon Mutero, vice president of finances and Kandus Thorp, director of International Development, to congratulate church leaders for their commitment to spreading the Word of God as the historic launch program began.
“The work of building the kingdom of Christ will go forward,” said Morris. “There’s a great deal of work ahead and we must use every available technology to reach people with the gospel message of the soon coming of Jesus.”
