We have received so many questions all around the country. Another question that constantly comes up is, “What is the best way to take on-line offerings?” We have helped many churches set up their website to be able to do it. If you have a website, there are many plugins and it comes down to […]
Many pastors and churches have reached out over the past few weeks as we’ve all been experiencing a lot of difficulty with the current situation with the Coronavirus or COVID-19. Many churches are going to live stream and other digital opportunities. We have been in the middle of helping many churches with various things. […]

To every pastor and believer, In 2011, with God’s help, I started Christian Media International. We started with our first broadcasts in India, and I began traveling the country preaching and asking churches to think outside of the box when it came to outreach, and the use of media. With God-given global media relationships and […]
2019 Summer update on the progress of Christian Media International. The second quarter of this year has been very productive. Read this update to learn why.
In January we finished producing programs in Mandarin Chinese as well as Korean and they will be added to our languages on www.sharecmi.com within the next 30 days * We secured a brand television new outlet in Brazil and will be traveling there soon to finalize the contracts. * We are working on getting a […]
“Anna and Shapoor, a Persian couple contacted me from Turkey and I led them to the Lord over the Skype.” – Pastor Michael Germi (Iranian Broadcast) “Hello my name is Albert Shah. I watch your broadcast every week. I was born a Hindu and believed there was many gods. After watching your television program I […]
Over the last five years, Christian Media International has witnessed God bless and work in miraculous ways. In 2017 alone we saw many wonderful events take place.
Don’t miss the quarterly updates given by CMI each quarter to update each and every person who has given and prayed to make this ministry possible.
In a few short weeks we will be packing our crew and taking them to Eastern Europe to record programs for the region. We are praying and hope you will pray with us that we can make a massive impact there.
When I agreed to allow a group of our men to develop a media ministry at our church I didn’t really appreciate how it would help or benefit our church. Now I can’t understand why we didn’t utilize media from the very beginning.
Eastern Europe is so “post-Christian” that it is actually “pre-Christian.” Right now in modern missions there is much emphasis on going to the 1040 window, Spanish-speaking countries or to Africa. While this is certainly encouraging, a recent statistic suggested that less than one percent of all missions dollars are going to support new missionaries in Eastern Europe.
In a recent article, I read that “Eastern Europe is a graveyard of former missionaries.” This land is nearly forgotten when speaking about modern missions. Unlike the masses in Africa, or the untold millions in Asia, Eastern Europe is a section of our world that has, in large part, REJECTED God. Still we are called to preach the gospel to every creature.
The hard work has been completed. The pulpit has been wiped down after a blisteringly good sermon has been preached. The lights have been turned off, forcing the lingering crowds to slowly drifted home, or maybe to the restaurant to continue the fellowship.
There are far more people outside the walls of our church than are on the inside, and at our home church, we have taken steps to be sure that the messages preached inside don’t just stay inside. We send those messages to The People of the Stream…
I cannot place enough emphasis on the value of what quality media can do for your church. In this post, I want to try to explain some things for those who maybe have not taken that first step and would like to first understand reasons to value media.
So there we were, a team of five men on the far side of the planet, with no idea of the epic spiritual battle that we were about to face. But even had we known what was coming, we would not have changed our plans. Millions of souls hung in the balance, and what manner of men would we be if we shirked a good fight with our eternal enemy?
Not long ago, I was being interviewed by a young lady, when she asked what I do for a living. I began expressing my passion for media. I explained the exponential effects of a recording that can be seen for years to come and reach people long after you and I are gone. After talking about that for a few minutes, she then asked a question that I totally did not see coming. She asked, “Media is obviously your passion, but what is your ‘Plan B’?”
At Christian Media International we firmly believe it is possible to achieve the command of Mark 16:15 when Christ tells us in Mark 16:15, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Even though it is seemingly difficult I have also seen God touch the heart of the rich and affluent. It does not happen as regularly as the poor, but in many countries where he is doing great things I have seen the most affluent, and those with the most opportunity coming to Christ and sacrificing greatly.
Every ministry is different! Different budgets. Different needs. Different workflows. But one thing is universally welcome. A GOOD DEAL! The problem many ministries run into is that at the moment they decide it’s time to “pull the trigger” on new media equipment, the “techy guy” spends the next few days catching up on all the new gadgets in the market that he hasn’t been able to keep up with.
Do you greet your guests as well as Marriott? After traveling “church to church” with CMI for a few years here are some great things that I have seen in regard to church greeting methods: 1) VIP Parking for guests 2) Attendant to Meet You in the parking lot to get your journey started 3) […]
In traditional corporate marketing there are always three P’s taught: Product, Price, and Promotion I would say that these three principles still apply when you are speaking about “marketing” a church. First, I would say that my definition for Marketing is- “The management of perception.” Here is how these three principles apply to a church- Product– Obviously […]
Typically we write our updates out. This time I would like for you to watch a video.
As we see winter approaching we are excited to reflect on all that God has done this fall. It was a season where much work was accomplished locally and abroad. Our primary mission to “leverage media to reach the masses and plant churches” often takes us to local churches in the states to extend their reach as well. Below you will find brief reports of many exciting things that were accomplished in recent months.
Since the inception of CMI over two years ago, God continues to give us more opportunities than we can fulfill. We began this ministry by broadcasting into India, and now over 75+ countries around the world hear the message of the gospel through CMI.
After speaking to Sat-7 for over 2 years we are finally ready to launch our first broadcast on Arabic television.
It has been a very busy fall season at CMI. God is blessing in amazing ways. With our move to Georgia and the donation of a building that needs renovation we have been working at home while expecting that God is preparing us for a HUGE 2016! We cant wait to announce some big things that will be happening next year, but you will have to wait until 2016 to hear about them.
Dr Charles Keen and I were talking at a recent Missions Conference, and he said something that I believe was revolutionary and yet so simple. He asked me what the difference was between all of the people presenting at the conference. He expressed that it was not their passion or necessarily their methods. He said it was their presentation…
It has been a fast paced winter so far. God has blessed with a calendar full of meetings as well as more opportunity than I could possibly take advantage of! I have included a recent video that we produced for a missions conference that tells of some of the highlights of 2014 as well as […]
Christian Media International has the chance to go to China to film 3 Mandarin preachers that will give us nearly a year of television programming for 2015. The Chinese television networks – Good TV and Calvary TV have been starving for gospel content!
I am still excited to see God doing miracles through Christian Media International! It has been an unbelievable year so far with all that God is doing all around the world. Here are a few updates and stories since returning from Venezuela. Pastor Victor Paez- Since last year, […]

With this purpose in mind CMI Camp is planning to teach and train […]
It is hard to believe that summer is almost over! This summer has been so productive for CMI. I want to thank all who have participated in missions trips, all who gave, all who prayed, and all of the churches that have allowed me to share my God given vision and work. Here are some […]
Quick Update: Just want to say thank you to all who prayed and donated to the Honduras Television project. It was extremely successful! Please see video below… My son Skyler and I started off the trip by going to the country of Panama to look at a radio station, and see about at television station […]
Summer is Here! 2014 is moving way to fast and there is much to do… Here are some current updates to keep on your prayer list.
This month has been one of the greatest months in Christian Media International’s short existence. It starts a little over a year ago when after placing a broadcast on in the U.S. I received a phone call from Columbus, Ohio.
CMI is in need of 120 churches to support taking the Gospel around the world through media.
We need preachers or missionaries who speak foreign languages who have a passion to preach to millions of people.
