The Lord laid it on Jim’s heart decades ago that one day He would have Jim establish a national Christian TV show. Jim got his feet wet doing the daily announcements over the intercom at his public school. Then, at 16 years of age Jim began to do “voice overs” for David Mainse’s new TV show, Crossroads. Over the succeeding years he has done his own Television and radio work, with some of it nationally in Israel, but he did not feel the timing right to pursue the national vision the Lord had laid on his heart. A big factor was not wanting to muddy the waters by stepping into an area of ministry that was already being effectively covered by 100 Huntley Street and It’s A New Day among others.
Jim had a profound sense that the Lord was calling me to act now. So Jim incorporated “Cantelon Christian Communications”. Little did I know that within weeks of that incorporation the “Mainse Era” at Crossroads would end, and that “It’s A New Day” would cease production. Nor did he expect that both Vision TV and other Canadian Broadcasters would show immediate interest in his new show. But this has happened.
The vision is clear: present a thoughtful, articulate, informed Christian perspective on matters of interest to a national audience with the best guest commentators, intriguing interviews and a major component of effective Bible teaching.
Who is it for? Believers, unbelievers, seekers and “homeless Christians”, that is, Christians who love Jesus but no longer attend church.
