3ABN Newsbreak: Making 3ABN’s Original Series


Hello, I’m Mollie Steenson. Have you ever wondered what it takes to keep 3ABN’s message up to date? As our audience grows, we’re constantly working on new programs to appeal to their hearts. But how is that accomplished?

Most people don’t realize how unusual it is for 3ABN to produce such a large percentage of quality, original programming. Most Christian networks use large numbers of programs produced by other ministries, and have little or no control over their content. However, we’ve been called to give a distinct message. Danny Shelton’s vision from God was to build a television station that would reach the world, with the undiluted three angels’ messages of Revelation 14, a station that would “counteract the counterfeit,” and that’s what we strive for. If it’s not squarely based on the Bible, our pledge to you is that it will never appear on any of our networks.

3ABN produces roughly 69% original content for our English network, 67% for our Spanish content, and 100% of our Russian content. But without the Lord and all of you, that would be impossible.

We’re immensely blessed by the finest pastors, health presenters, and guests who come here at their own expense. Then, there are those who work tirelessly to make our television and radio programs — the producers, directors, camera operators, studio managers, lighting directors, audio and video engineers — just to mention a few.

But we never forget that the message is the most important in bringing hope and salvation to a lost and dying world. There is only one solution: a relationship with Jesus. Whether it’s a changed life or a children’s program, we bring Him honor and glory every minute of the day. With six television networks and two radio networks airing 168 hours of programming each week, do you know that’s a total of 1,344 hours of programming each week?

How can we do this with such a small staff? It’s simple. Every part of 3ABN’s ministry beats in sync with the heart of the Father. He makes that possible, and He uses you to help. Your faithful prayers and financial support have made it all possible for 28 years, and our message is still strong. So thank you for all that you do for 3ABN.

We feel your prayers each day. If the Holy Spirit impresses you to support our worldwide ministry, please send your tax deductible love gifts to:
