Testimonials

We’ve listened to those with first-hand experience — both prison chaplains and current and former inmates— about the power and potential of TBN 2nd Chance.

Thank you for all you do. We really appreciate you and your faithfulness to the calling of what God has called you to do.  TBN has touched and continue to touch so many inmates, as they watch your programs.  May God richly bless you and continue to use you for His glory.  Thank you once again!
My name is Darin Clark. I am the Business Administrator for Noble Correctional Institution in Caldwell, Ohio. We are fortunate enough to have a satellite system that was supplied by TBN and receive TBN, Enlace, Hillsong, and PosiTiV. I would like to say a big thank you for that, as it is a big part of our mission and vision here at Noble Correctional Institution.
I write to you to thank you for all you do for prisoners nationwide.  At Clallam Bay Corrections Center, the men watch your network, and it has made a tremendous difference in their lives.
I want to thank you and those at TBN who remember the men at Louisiana State Penitentiary.  During this time of the pandemic, religious broadcasting has become more vital in the mission to reach, encourage, and build men for the Kingdom.  Please thank those who have the burden to reach inside our prison walls with the quality religious programming of TBN.
Several men have expressed their thankfulness to be able to access the religious programming.  Again, this is a great leap forward for the ministry at Wildwood.  Blessings to all who have made this possible.
I can think of no other television network that would provide incarcerated men and women the level of spiritual encouragement and hope that TBN would deliver to those who need it most in overcoming destructive attitudes and behaviors. TBN's programming provides a moral and spiritual reinforcement in development of a sense of purpose and positive self image that promotes successful reintegration into society and reduces the likelihood of recidivism.
TBN 2nd Chance allows inmates to voluntarily tune into positive programs that will help them grow emotionally, mentally, and spiritually in an institutional environment that is often plagued by violence and negativity.
The women inmates who watch TBN frequently comment favorably on the programs and the impact it has on their lives… (TBN) is a tool in taking them to the next level—emotionally, intellectually and spiritually, and ultimately preparing them for a successful re-entry into society.
TBN provides a great support adjunct for the prison chaplain, helping in discipleship and teaching of the Gospel. In addition, many inmates who elect not to attend chapel services as a result of their unwillingness to incur the stigma and negative peer pressure of openly declaring their faith, watch TBN, who otherwise would not receive spiritual encouragement any other way.

For the inmates in lockdown and segregated quarters who cannot attend the chapel’s open religious services, TBN serves as a lifeline and IS their church for many who watch the broadcast.

As a CDCR departmental employee for almost 26 years and a Correctional Counselor III for approximately 11 years, I strongly recommend the TBN 2nd Chance program which offers no-cost faith-based television broadcasting and satellite equipment to prisons nationwide. TBN 2nd Chance is an effective tool in assisting correctional systems in a recidivism reduction strategy and can help to significantly reduce the level of violence that is widespread within the prison system.
So, I write this letter to thank you for the true bible teachers, to hint for more of them and more evenly balanced with the charismatic power promises and to thank you and praise whoever is responsible for the PosiTiV channel too!
I do want to thank you for all your time, efforts and support in helping us to rejuvenate the course of our future with Christ Jesus in our lives.
One night watching your show I seen Joyce Meyer talking about her new book “Do it Afraid.”  It totally lifted me up and when she prayed at the end of the video, I felt God’s peace.  So much peace that I watched the video again.
Thank you for being faithful to God to continue your father’s legacy and God’s network.  God has worked through TBN to save me, teach me, an encourage me for twenty years.  Unusual circumstances has landed me in prison for the last ten years. Through those years, TBN lives on my T.V. screen for most part of the day.
I just want to thank you for your services on TBN we watch you to get the word of God since the Covid hit we don’t get any of the church ladies to come in so this is the only way we get to hear God’s word and we are very thankful for it.
We’re locked up with no Chaplains due to Corona.  I praise God for your network.  It’s pretty amazing and praise God in Jesus name how he uses your network for His pleasure and glorious works.
I participated in the mass prayer you presented.  I watched the whole presentation of the Christian call to prayer for the healing of the nation and to ask God to remove the virus that has killed many because all have turned away from God’s commandment, laws and worship.
I thank you for continuing to pour into me and the world.  I pray God continues to bless you, your families, your ministry, your partners, above & beyond measure.
In the ‘free world’ I couldn’t imagine me sitting here watching a Christian network on T.V.
I have to let you know how anointed you all are. Watching your programs and the amazing services you have with such anointed Pastors and teachings of God’s word. When I came to prison I never in a million years would have imagined that I would have given my life to Christ.
