Religious programmers Trinity Broadcasting Network and the Miracle Channel, of Canada, said they have formed a partnership agreement that will let them share their most popular programs and collaborate on a new weekly show.
Founded in 1973 as a low-power station in Southern California, TBN has grown into a family of 24 networks around the world. The Miracle Channel has grown since 1996 to reach 4.5 million households across Canada with a wide variety of ministry programs, talk shows, music, movies, news and live programming, the programmers said in a release.
Under the new agreement:
- The Miracle Channel will air TBN's signature music and ministry program Praise the Lord five days a week, with Leon Fontaine serving as a frequent Praise the Lord host. There are also plans for the show to be produced live from Canada at least four times a year.
- The Miracle Channel will also air TBN's long-running daily Behind the Scenes update five days a week, providing regular segments to keep viewers informed on what is happening in Canada's Christian community.
- TBN will air one of the Miracle Channel's most popular weekly ministry program, featuring the dynamic teaching of Leon Fontaine. The program originates from Canada's multi-campus Springs Church, pastored by Leon and his wife Sally.
- TBN's Church Channel network will also host Fontaine's 30-minute daily Leon Show, a talk program that explores relevant topics and spiritual issues with well-known Christian leaders and guests.
TBN and the Miracle Channel said they also plan to collaborate on a new weekly Christian show that is being described as “Spirit Contemporary” in tone — combining the life-changing full Gospel message with a keen sensitivity to viewers who may be unfamiliar with the Christian faith.
