In 2005 Pastor Steven L. Shelley was invited to Reykjavik, Iceland by Erik Eriksson, the president and founder of the Gospel Channel, to speak on a live broadcast. While in Reykjavik Pastor Shelley had an experience one night, similar to the one he had concerning Jerusalem (read more), except this time he felt the weightiness of all the nations of the world passing over him. He knew then that somehow he would have an outreach on the television, reaching the world. Not long after arriving back in Alabama, Pastor Shelley was contacted by Bro. Eriksson who was led by the Lord to offer him a 30 minute spot to air his own television show on the station.
This was not the first time Pastor Shelley had ever been on television, he had a show locally for a couple of years in the early 90s, but this was certainly a major breakthrough in the area of outreach. The Gospel Channel reaches more than 52 nations across Europe and Scandinavia. You can also stream the Gospel Channel from anywhere in the world, via the internet.
Since the end of 2005 Pastor Shelley’s show, The Eagle’s Cry, has been blessing and helping people around the world. We have received countless e-mails, letters and calls sharing how the programs have changed people’s lives and brought them revelation, deliverance and healing.
A couple of years later, Pastor Shelley was contacted by Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj to expand our television outreach by airing it on Angel TV which is available worldwide via satellite.
Through the medium of television God is reaching out to people who would never darken the doors of a church and people of every type of religious background who are hungry for more of God. This television ministry is a direct fulfillment of a prophecy given to Pastor Shelley in 1998 that at the time seemed like an impossibility. Our God deals in the realm of the supernatural and things that are impossible in our minds. In His perfect time He kept His Word and opened these wonderful doors of ministry.
We are blessed to be partnering with the Gospel Channel and Angel TV in television ministry and we ask that you would keep these dedicated ministries in your prayers as they continue bringing the wonderful news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
