“There is currently very little on television that targets the 13 to 29 year age group in the faith-based program category. Yet, there are contemporary Christian radio stations in every major city and over 330,000 churches in America with thousands of youth groups that do not have their own TV channel to view or identify with. Now, with JCTV, the pent up demand for a national faith-based youth oriented television network can be satisfied”, says Paul Crouch Jr., TBN’s Vice-president of Administration.
