Benny Hinn to launch 24-hour TV channel
Televangelists Chris Oyakhilome and Benny Hinn are launching a 24-hour TV channel. LoveWorld USA will commence in July to Spectrum cable subscribers.
This announcement last Thursday during an online news conference comes five weeks after IRS agents raided the Benny Hinn Ministries headquarters in North Texas.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, DSc. DD, founder of the new LoveWorldUSA network, is also president of Believers’ LoveWorld Inc. and of Christ Embassy.
“I’m so excited that Pastor Benny Hinn will be a vital advisor and ministry participant on our new LoveWorldUSA channel,” Pastor Chris said. “He has been a powerful force of Holy Spirit–empowered evangelism and teaching for more than 42 years. His breakthrough Good Morning, Holy Spirit is one of the most influential books of the past three decades, touching my life as a young minister in Nigeria and impacting millions of people around the world. Pastor Benny is also one of the very people alive today who has worked alongside the great pioneers of evangelism and media ministry: Kathryn Kuhlman, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Rex Humbard, David Mains, Paul Crouch, Lester Sumrall, and more.
“He has been used to minister the largest healing crusades in history (including audiences of 7.4 million during three nights in India). No one but Pastor Benny Hinn could possibly bring such a wealth of seasoned experience and serve as the bridge between what God has done in the past and what He desires to do right now through the media ministry. And we are pleased he will be doing that for us at LoveWorldUSA!”
“God has miraculously brought Pastor Chris and me together for a time such as this,” Pastor Benny Hinn explained. “It was life changing when we met in October 2016. The more I learned about him, the more I realized that something remarkable was happening in the Spirit. Pastor Chris had already pioneered the first 24-hour Christian satellite network broadcasting from Africa, and expanded to Europe and the United Kingdom.
“From the first time he discussed the new LoveWorldUSA channel with me and asked me to be instrumental in advising him and participating as a visible face of the network, I knew God was leading both of us in a mighty way. Just as my beloved friend Dr. Paul Crouch and other great media pioneers were invaluable to me as I was being led to move into television, I’m pleased to be able to share what I’ve learned with Pastor Chris as we begin this new era of his ministry in the United States.”
Pastor Benny Hinn added, “I want to emphasize to all my faithful Benny Hinn Ministries partners that BHM will continue to be a completely separate ministry. This Is Your Day telecasts will continue to feature teaching, miracle service highlights, and interviews from around the world on a variety of networks and stations. But we will now have the added opportunity to appear multiple times a day on LoveWorldUSA.
“BHM’s Atmosphere for Healing Network, with its blend of both classic and new programs, will continue providing 24/7 ministry. Our miracle services and partner conferences will be held as always in strategic locations around the globe. And our worldwide ministry outreaches will continue to touch hurting and needy people of all ages.”
