Becoming a grOW TV Supporter means joining the Winners’ Team Partners. We are expanding our outreach to include the whole world, and you can join the team. Your dollars affect the world in three major areas:
Expansion of Christian Television and Radio: Expansion includes the ™ grOW TV broadcast and our other television shows into more markets, bringing the message of Christ, success, hope, and God’s principals to young people everywhere. grOW TV has a unique way of reaching individuals who wouldn’t normally watch Christian programming. In 2007 grOW tv broadcasts include the United States and India. We invest partner dollars into developing our shows, making them better, and getting into new markets. Radio includes the nationally syndicated radio show, Taking a Minute, which in 2007 is in over 70 cities across the United States!
Helping the Poor: Dollars raised through partnership are also used to support orphans! There are many needs here in America and abroad. We are excited to report that in 2006 Winners’ Team added the support of three new orphanages. The first, our Uganda, Africa, Destiny Orphanage and School houses, feeds, and educates children whose parents have died as a result of sickness and disease, the majority of whom were infected by AIDS. Next, we completely took over a failing orphanage in India, which we have named The Living Word Orphanage. We are also helping get many of the kids in Brazil out of the abusive streets and into shelters by supporting Acts Ministries.
Crusades: Yes… evangelism the good old fashioned way. We support the use of crusades to spread the gospel, as it is such an amazingly effective tool. Not everyone has television just yet! Our crusades target young people who would not normally attend a service to hear the gospel. The idea is that if you change the young people of the nation, you change the nation! In 2006 we paid for a young peoples crusade through California, Nevada, and Arizona called “UNITE” where hundreds of young people walked the aisles every night. We also supported a crusade in 2007 we are fully funding crusades in China, Hyderabad, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. These crusades have over 20,000 young people in attendance each night (enough to fill your local cities big arena) to see an American rock band where the gospel is presented to an audience who have never heard of Christ! You can visit our web sight to see past crusades that we have fully funded at www.growtv.net.
There are many other amazing causes that we fund, from helping homeless shelters in downtown areas, to rebuilding two churches after the Tsunami, and sending a team of support to aid in the Hurricane Katrina effort. There are too many things to list, but what I can assure you is that our financials are audited by an independent accounting firm annually, and that all dollars will be used with God’s stewardship. Because we are a certified 501c(3) Not for Profit United States corporation you can give with the confidence that no one is getting rich from donations, and that’s important to know in today’s society!
There is a new generation of believers who give because they sense the responsibility to be a part of something that is bigger than just one person. Givers who are turned off by gimmicks and manipulation, and are excited to see a fresh way to reach the lost and a heart felt compassion for those in need. grOW tv is a far reach from traditional Christian Television in it’s format, and yet recognizes that God’s word is unchanging…. God’s word is what sharpens the world and brings light to dark places. Join the team because you sense the need, and you want to do it.
