LAKESIDE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2012) - Turning Point, the largest syndicated Bible teaching ministry in the world, announced today that its programming will be carried by USA Network, the number one watched cable network on television.
Beginning October 7, Turning Point Television featuring Dr. David Jeremiah will be seen on the USA Network on Sunday mornings at 7:30 a.m. Eastern and Pacific (6:30 a.m. Central; 5:30 a.m. Mountain) -- the church equivalent of prime time. The 30-minute program will potentially reach 88 million households across the United States.
"As is so often the case with God, this was entirely unanticipated," explained Dr. Jeremiah. "The USA Network recently approached our ministry with the available time slot and gave us 48 hours to make a decision. In the world of television, those who hesitate are truly lost, so we decided to move forward and gratefully signed the contract. This is a tremendous opportunity for us to reach millions more people with the saving message of Jesus Christ and to help us achieve our mission of delivering the unchanging Word of God to an ever-changing world."
Turning Point Television includes mini-series productions by Turning Point Television Studios, such as The Account and, currently, Portraits of God's Love. These creative and high-quality productions introduce the teaching of Dr. Jeremiah, the senior pastor at Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, CA.
Since its nationwide launch in April of 2000, the ministry of Turning Point Television has rapidly expanded. Today, in partnership with numerous networks both domestically and abroad, Turning Point Television reaches nearly every home in the U.S. as well as in Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
