Why are you changing things? I hate change! (We do too...sometimes)
What is a Field Rep and why are you here?
Change? Why are we changing? What changes are coming?
Well, you know, the old saying is “change is inevitable.” That holds true in most every case in our daily lives; however we need to remember that God’s Word never changes! Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever! (Hebrews 13:8). Not so much in the world of television and Media….
We were notified earlier this year that we would be losing our network portal of AngelOne on Dish Network. That caused a frenzy at our offices in the fact that we would be using about 10 million potential households. We had to change! Whether we wanted to or not, change was coming. After weeks of negotiations, discussions, seeking additional funding, we thought we had the replacement in place. We found out just this week that the network that had offered a slot decided that we were not a good fit for them. This notification caused us to begin the wheels rolling all over again…and unfortunately, we do not have a broadcast time set for February at this time for Dish Network. We will work diligently to secure a new portal there as quickly as we can.
In the meantime, we were able to make a few tweaks and changes to some of our other broadcast portals and we will have some exciting announcements coming soon for those as well.
Satan may have hindered us just a bit, but
Important Broadcast Change - Dish Network
Oftentimes, when we reach out to a congregation or even when we are working with our existing relationships, the question comes up “what is a field rep?” Sometimes, we may get a bit assumptive in thinking that everyone already knows what this means…when in reality, many may not.
Allow me to give a simple explanation, if I may. Our Field Reps are seasoned gospel preachers that have a desire to spread the gospel message with others. Sometimes these preachers have retired from regular pulpit duties, or maybe they work a full-time job outside of ministering and do not get the opportunity to do what they love and feel a calling for - preaching the gospel! Our field reps
When the weather outside is frightful....what a great time to share the Gospel!
Effective January 31, 2019, the AngelOne Network will be discontinuing broadcast. This means that our program will no longer be broadcast on this channel on Dish Network. We are working to quickly find alternatives, and will keep our website and social media pages updated with any new information.
Remember, you can always catch us streaming on all devices!
From the mail bag...
As I drove in to the office at TGOC this morning, I saw our third or fourth showing of some of that frozen precipitation falling on the windshield. Now, as you may know, the offices of The Gospel of Christ are in McMinnville, Tennessee, so some of you are probably saying, “he doesn’t even know what snow is!” And to an extent you are right! We don’t get a lot of bad snow storms and ice here that last or are in comparison to some in the northern parts of the United States, or some other countries. Then again, some of our readers may say, “what’s snow?”
What happens when a monster comes to town? A look at a some of our supporting congregations during Hurricane Michael's
This one comes to us through the US Mail…
This excerpt is from one of our viewers/students of the Word.
"My name is William...and I have been so blessed from your ministry sending the free information that I have requested. It has enabled me to share the Gospel with others..."
Fall has arrived - that means a busy time for our Field Reps!
This month, the Field Rep update hits a little more personal than most. In this article, I want to tell you of a personal experience that I was able to be a part of in more ways than one.
On October 10, 2018, a beast of a storm hit the Panhandle of Florida with mighty fierce. Mexico Beach was almost at the center of the crossing of the eye of the hurricane and took a catastrophic hit to the town, the community, the infrastructure, but not to the church. Please allow me to explain…
This area was devastated for more than 90 miles north and probably close to the same east and west. In the direct path of the storm was the meeting place of one of the supporting congregations of TGOC -
From a recent email...
Now that summer events are winding down, area gospel meetings and revivals have mostly finished, and many congregations are making plans for the rest of the year, exciting times happen for our Field Rep program as it starts to get very busy!
We try our very best to schedule our visits with any and every congregation that we can, and sometimes that can be a bit hectic in finding the best time. We appreciate all that reach out to us and allow us to visit
We have been busy to bring you more!
We have a man who has been through much and has been seeking Him for years. Went to a bunch of non-denominationals until he found you on YouTube. He was so frustrated with the state of the religious world that he was actually making preparations to move himself and his wife there to assemble. Your preaching convicted him and he began coming here regularly seeking truth and love. He was immersed 2 weeks ago and we are helping equip him for the battle!
Your servant in Christ,
Field Rep Program
It has been a very exciting few months from the Field Rep department and especially the Electronic Media Ministry side of The Gospel of Christ program.
With the recent additions of Jimmy Pitchford, Robert Lambert, and Samuel Hostetter, our Field Rep team has expanded into more areas. These men are doing a wonderful job of getting in contact with area congregations and scheduling meetings,
