"3ABN and Amazing Facts to Unite Ministries"

< Prev.Next >

The following media release from Amazing Facts in essence states what other sources have also said: What has been approved is the idea of a merger, not the merger itself. As Amazing Facts makes clear below, "There are still a number of organizational details to be worked out." Will those details in the end be agreeable to both parties, or will the merger in actuality never take place?

We hope and pray that this "venture" between Amazing facts and 3ABN results in the various allegations against Danny Shelton being handled in a professional, straightforward, and Christian manner.



SACRAMENTO, CA, April 19, 2007 — Amazing Facts and Three Angels Broadcasting Network (3ABN) today announced plans to unite the two international Christian media ministries. The boards of directors of both ministries have unanimously approved the venture that will join the ministries under a new board and constituency, creating a new global platform for evangelism.

While there are still a number of organizational details to be worked out, Amazing Facts and 3ABN are confident this dynamic partnership can be completed quickly and smoothly. For the immediate future, both ministries will continue regular operations. However, the ultimate goal is to optimize evangelistic impact to the world by consolidating these global operations, leading to more efficient service to the body of Christ and better stewardship of resources.

Regarding the announcement, Doug Batchelor, Amazing Facts President, says, "This union of two dynamic ministries represents a miraculous milestone to fulfill the great commission, forging an impressive team who bring their unique talents and assets to the same table. By joining hands, we will surely see greater effectiveness and economy in spreading the gospel to the world. We're really excited about this comprehensive opportunity to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ."

3ABN founder Danny Shelton adds, "We're excited about this development, which will accelerate an array of evangelistic services to reach the multitudes. The Spirit-filled speakers of Amazing Facts will share the undiluted truth of God's Word on a well-established media global platform and mobilize an army of Christians to conduct Bible studies in cities worldwide. Time is shortówe need to maximize our efforts to reach lost souls."

Beginning with a 15-minute radio broadcast in 1966, Amazing Facts has grown into a successful soul-winning dynamo. For more than 40 years, Amazing Facts has provided strong evangelistic ministry through an array of services that include evangelistic training through the Amazing Facts Center of Evangelism, a team of traveling evangelists, publishing, radio and television broadcasts, Bible schools, and a popular internet ministry.

Founded in 1984, 3ABN began broadcasting on November 23, 1986, and now transmits its signal to nine satellites that carry it to every inhabited continent with a potential viewing audience of hundreds of millions. In addition to its English-speaking television network, 3ABN operates 3ABN Books, 3ABN Radio, and 3ABN Latino Television networks, along with a 3ABN television and radio production center in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. The ministry has also announced plans to launch the 3ABN International Network before the year's end. The second largest Christian network in North America (in numbers of owned and operated UHF stations), 3ABN also has full-power stations in Papua New Guinea, Uganda, and the Philippines.

Finally, Doug Batchelor comments, "In 1844, Samuel Morse sent the first electronic message, which quoted Numbers 23:23: 'What hath God wrought!' What the printing press was 500 years ago to the gospel, media has become today. As 3ABN and Amazing Facts join hands and hearts, wonderful things can happen to expand Jesus' kingdom. It's hard to describe the staggering potential! I simply stand in awesome wonder declaring, 'What hath God wrought!' "

"If Christians were to act in concert, moving forward as one, under the direction of one Power, for the accomplishment of one purpose, they would move the world." --Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 221
