The Christian Channel, Now Grace TV
A new Canadian Christian television channel is already producing some of its own programs.

Grace TV is the new name of The Christian Channel, a 24-hour digital channel that reaches more than 30 percent of Canadian households. The channel was purchased by World Impact Ministries (WIM) earlier this year.

Offices for the channel (www.gracetelevision.net) have moved from Toronto to St. Catharines, Ontario, home of World Impact Ministries, a charity known for media and international work. All are headed by Peter Youngren.

“We are committed to programming that will entertain, educate and encourage spiritual dialogue and growth,” says Youngren. “We also want to rekindle some of the initial sense of purpose that permeated Christian TV, to present the Gospel in a way that causes Canadians to rediscover Jesus Christ as meaningful in their lives.”

WIM is already producing some of its own programming. Its flagship program, Encounter, is a Monday to Friday variety program.

The purchase of the channel from the S-VOX group of companies, which includes Vision TV and One: The Body, Mind & Spirit Channel, was approved by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

Bill Fledderus is senior editor of Faith Today.
