CBN.com Spreads Love of God Online
Through the fast and convenient power of the Internet, CBN.com is helping
many people find the love of God.
Watching The 700 Club on her own computer is what thrills Valara
Catalano. "I can go to the Internet and actually pull up various programs
and see what I missed and basically watch what I want whenever I want,"
But CBN.com is much more than a daily broadcast of The 700 Club.
"This has been a dramatic year for CBN.com. We have grown in some exciting
ways," says CBN.com's Ministries Director Craig von Buseck. "One of
the strengths of CBN.com is that we are able to bring up-to-the minute
coverage of breaking events. One of the strongest examples of this was
what happened on September 11. On that day we were able to update the
news as it was happening."
The Community Center,
which offers health tips, book offers like the 21-Day Habit, and teaching
sheets helps make CBN.com a powerful information resource.
"Forty years of ministry is online and available to the partners and
others who are looking for information, inspiration, teaching and comfort,"
And now, during CBN's "Bring it On" segments and exclusive interviews
on CBNinteractive, viewers can send e-mail questions to The 700 Club
"So we have got synergy between our viewers, the Internet, and the
television show," says Craig. "It's really exciting."
But the heart of CBN.com is bringing the good news of Jesus to people
like Debbie Burke. As a new believer and single mother of four, Debbie
is glad to know there is a place to go anytime for biblical guidance.
"I am learning so much" Debbie says. "I log on to CBN and pull up a
teaching sheet. I am
just a baby in this. I am so new, and I am trying so hard to bring this
love of Jesus and God into my home."
There are many others like Debbie, and CBN.com is there with words
of compassion and truth. For one man, the information he found on the
Spiritual Life channel gave him the insight
he needed to make a life-changing decision.
"He said that by the time he got to the bottom of the page, he was
weeping and he realized he needed to come back to the Lord," says Craig.
Every month CBN receives 20,000 e-mails
and each one is personally responded to within 24 hours. This helps
people like Debbie experience the peace that God has for them.
"A lot of the change is not outward," she says. "People might not notice
I am a different person, but inside I am less anxious and worry so much
less. I don't fear like I used to."
Many others are finding the love of God. This year over 2,000 people
e-mailed CBN.com and dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ.
"It is because of the partners who give to support
CBN that this type of ministry is taking place online and touching
people that CBN, perhaps, has never touched before," says Craig.
Debbie believes in supporting CBN financially also. "I think it is
important for people to give to CBN, because of all of the work they
are doing. They are saving lives. You can't put a price on a life."
