Why Media?

Media has always been the catalyst for change in culture. It is our desire to influence the masses for Christ. With media we can spread the message of Gods love to the ends of the earth. We use media for evangelism, discipleship, and church planting.

4.3 Billion People Have Access to Internet

As of January 2021 there were 4.66 billion active internet users worldwide – 59.5 percent of the global population. Of this total, 92.6 percent (4.32 billion) accessed the internet via mobile devices. This number is projected to grow to 7.5 billion by 2030. The percentage of people worldwide with access to radio or television is over 90%.

Media Changes Everything

The Internet has removed all communication barriers. Online, the conventional constraints of space and time disappear and there is a dizzyingly wide range of communicative possibilities. In addition to its impact on culture itself, the Internet is enormously beneficial for innovation, which brings progress in all fields of endeavor—the creation of new goods, services, and ideas, the advance of knowledge and society, and increasing well-being.

How We Use Media to Our Advantage

Christian Media International is a full-service missions organization. Its purpose is to create and Christian media and air it to international television markets. International media is a wide-open mission field that if properly engaged can help our missionaries, church plants, and national pastors. Its outlets include satellite tv, cable tv, local broadcast television, and internet television.

Programming

CMI partners with pastors and missionaries to create the Bible-based video programing that is needed for the international outlets. Our priority is to provide the Gospel as well as Biblical principles in the native languages of the countries we air in. We currently air in over 110 countries.

Studios

CMI has strategic studios around the world and also in the United States to produce the programs that air. These studios are placed with our partners and regional directors. We currently have 8 studios and plan to have 15 operational by 2023.

Church Planting

Once the programs air then we ask those who watched to respond and the responses are collected by our partners and responded to. These responses populate the local churches with new converts and visitors. In some cases, there are no churches to send the responses to. In this scenario CMI partners with church planters to plant churches. CMI is directly responsible for over 200 churches planted in the last 7 years

ROI

CMI is funded by churches, individual Christians, and the Christian business community and is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization. The average cost of a broadcast around the world is less than $30 and each broadcast has the potential of reaching millions of people. When we weigh this opportunity with other opportunities we believe it has one of the best returns on investment in missions today.

Media is Changing Lives Around The World

Besides media, influence CMI also faithful to support many my students at Bible school where I am teaching for many years. CMI has seen great need toinvest in young generation by helping them financially to pay their studying. So amazing and important to train young people and prepare new missionaries that after graduation they will reach many Ukrainians for Jesus. Glad that CMI is part of it. Finely I would like to say that for many and many years CMI is very faithful in ministry and helping us to reach millions for Jesus with Gospel preaching every week.

Praise the Lord that my messages have been aired through satellite TV six days a week as well as via radio. Two of my old friends (Abrahim and Behrooz) from my hometown (Germi) in Iran contacted me through WhatsApp after watching my programs on TV. One of them was a singer who sings at weddings with his orchestra group. They both said that they saw me on TV and they were proud of me for being a Christian and preaching on TV. They both were against Islam and open to the Gospel. Some of my relatives and family members, including my mother, told me that they have been watching my program on satellite TV. It was hard for me to believe that the Gospel could ever go to my hometown since it is a small, poor town in the northwest of Iran, with so little facilities; but the Gospel has already spread in that little town! That tells me that probably every city in Iran has been covered with the Gospel. Praise God!

We are grateful for your willingness to partner together with us by assisting in the completion of the studio in 6th of October in, Alexandria Egypt. This truly is an answer to our prayers. We look forward to meeting and working with the men of Christian Media International soon. God allowed me the opportunity a couple of years ago to bring Dr. Seabury Nybero to the studio in Dawsonville Georgia where I met Bro Dave, Bro Ron, and Bro Wilson. I was impressed with the ministry, and how smoothly things were accomplished there. You guys have done a wonderful job getting the Gospel around the world and we are excited about the opportunity to see the Gospel furthered to the Arabic-speaking populations around the world. Please, continue to pray with us over this project. If you need any information about this area and ministry please reach out to us.
