The Channel I See
The channel that I see is a global channel, outworked from the heart of a local church and operating from a unified vision. I see a prophetic and visionary channel committed to boldly impacting millions for Christ in every nation throughout the earth with the greatest of all causes – the cause of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I see a channel that champions local churches everywhere; that isn’t a substitute for Sunday services or the gathering of the saints, but resources pastors and parishioners alike every day of the week. A channel that brings the local church into the homes of those who have not yet ‘come Home’.
I see a channel that is constantly pioneering: one that leads the industry in revolutionary communication of an ancient message through media, film and technology. A channel with a message beamed to people around the globe through their television screens, bringing JESUS into homes, palaces and prisons alike. A channel that is constantly looking towards the future – filled with a vision that inspires and influences many.
I see a channel that encourages unity through diversity. Showcasing the body of Christ in all her glory with different styles of worshipping and different ways of communicating; encouraging every viewer to be all that God has called them to be.
I see innovative content powerful enough to draw the masses, while personal enough for every ONE. A channel that unfolds inspiring stories that collectively proclaim the character of our big, gracious and ever-present God. I see a channel committed to authenticity and credibility, creating pathways for ministries to go where they have never gone and do what they have never done.
I see a selfless and growing, partner base, dedicated to playing their part by praying and supporting the global mission and initiatives of the Hillsong Channel.
I see skilled and talented individuals committed to giving their time, craft, creativity and imagination to programming that captures the hearts of people from every walk of life.
The channel I see resources others with worship and songs – reflecting such passion for Christ that people are impacted by His magnificence and power. I see a distinct look and sound that carries that undeniable sense of God’s presence to villages and tribes – great cities and nations all around the globe.
I see a channel that is all about loving God, loving people and loving life; glorifying Jesus Christ and bringing His hope to humanity.
Youthful in spirit; generous at heart; faith-filled in confession; loving in nature and inclusive in expression – this channel is committed to bringing the love and hope of Christ to everyday and impossible situations through the preaching of the gospel. This mandate is what drives us to do all we can to bring help and healing to a needy world.
I see a channel whose head is Jesus, whose help is the Holy Spirit and whose focus is the Great Commission.
