Amazing Facts began in 1966 with a brilliant radio idea to attract listeners from all walks of life. Joe Crews, the ministry’s first speaker, opened each radio broadcast with an amazing fact and then followed with a related biblical message that everyone could understand. At the end of each program, he offered a free Bible lesson to encourage listeners to study God’s Word for themselves.
Step by step, Amazing Facts expanded its outreach by publishing dozens of Christ-centered books and creating a free mail-based Bible school accessible to any one. Not long after, the ministry also began sending trained young men to preach the gospel around the country, winning souls in a winsome way.
Then in the mid-1980s, Amazing Facts expanded its increasingly popular media outreach to television. The clear, Bible-based programs proved to be powerful, life-changing messages for thousands of viewers around the world.
In 1994, Doug Batchelor, an energetic soul-winning evangelist and author, took the reins of the ministry. Pastor Doug is an innovative speaker with an unusual ability to communicate not only to churchgoers, but also the unchurched throughout the world. Under his dynamic leadership, the ministry has grown exponentially — reaching more people in more ways than ever before. (Watch Pastor Doug's Testimony)
For instance, Amazing Facts now broadcasts multiple television programs and a live call-in radio program, Bible Answers Live, on hundreds of media outlets around the world. Moreover, Pastor Doug has presented dynamic, soul-winning seminars in New York, Africa, India, the Philippines, South Korea, and South America, resulting in thousands upon thousands of baptisms and new lives in Christ.
In every area of outreach — whether radio or TV, publications, prophecy seminars, training programs, Bible schools, or the internet — Amazing Facts is giving people the biblical answers they need to make an informed and heartfelt decision for Christ, and equipping them to lead others to Him.
Three Angels Broadcasting Network (3ABN) is the "Mending Broken People Network," a 24-hour Christian television and radio network. 3ABN’s focus is to present programming which will reach people right where they are hurting. 3ABN offers divorce recovery programs, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, cooking and health programs, stop smoking and weight loss, programs that deal with children and family issues, organic gardening, natural home remedies, gospel music programs, as well as a variety of inspirational themes from the Bible for children and adults.
Today, surrounded by the rolling farmland of Southern Illinois, 3ABN beams its television and radio programming to eight satellites which carry it to every inhabited continent. 3ABN is the second largest Christian network in North America (in regard to numbers of owned and operated UHF stations). 3ABN's "down-home" approach and the absence of large fundraising efforts or telethons holds a special appeal for its viewers.

The Voice of Prophecy
The Voice of Prophecy radio, Bible school, and evangelistic ministry has its international headquarters at the Adventist Media Center in Simi Valley, California.
H. M. S. Richards, a Seventh-day Adventist evangelist, pioneered the use of radio to present the gospel in 1929 -- when many of his colleagues thought the new device was the Devil's playground.
The ministry also utilizes Bible correspondence lessons to proclaim the good news that Christ will soon return. The Bible School was established in February 1942, only a month after the radio broadcast went coast-to-coast in North America.
Locally operated Discover Bible Schools have been established at 2,400 churches across North America.
Around the world, affiliated Voice of Prophecy and Voice of Hope radio studios produce programs that are aired by hundreds of stations, including AWR shortwave transmitters whose signals reach nearly every country. Bible courses in dozens of languages and dialects are offered by affiliated schools operating in nearly 140 countries.
