Christian broadcaster celebrates 20th anniversary

Through its four studios, it creates programmes in three languages to an estimated audience of 15 million.

SAT-7's aim is to introduce the Gospel to people who have never heard it before. It says only 10% of the region have ever met a Christian, but more than 90% have access to satellite television.

SAT-7's founder, Dr Terence Ascott, said "In the past two decades, many conflicts have overtaken or drawn in more than half the countries SAT-7 serves, Iraq and Syria in particular. But these conflicts, and extremism in the name of religion, have only increased the profound spiritual hunger for our programming.

"SAT-7 is enabling the Church to be salt and light in society, to be a prophetic voice and show a different way forward. This is a prime time for us as a ministry and it comes at a time when political Islam has been discredited and people are looking for answers to man's inhumanity to man.

"It is a fantastic time for us to available in millions of homes that are totally inaccessible to other forms of witness, with a Gospel of love, peace, hope and reconciliation."

Viewer responses to SAT-7's broadcasts have risen threefold in just five years, from an average of 270 a day in 2010 to over 800 a day in 2015.

It's hoped those responses will reach 2,000 a day by 2020.
