Amazing Facts began in 1965 with a brilliant radio idea to attract listeners from all walks of life. Joe Crews, the ministry’s first speaker, opened each radio broadcast with an amazing fact and then followed with a related biblical message that everyone could understand. At the end of each program, he offered a free Bible lesson to encourage listeners to study God’s Word for themselves.
Step by step, Amazing Facts expanded its outreach by publishing dozens of Christ-centered books and creating a free mail-based Bible school accessible to any one. Not long after, the ministry also began sending trained young men to preach the gospel around the country, winning souls in a winsome way.
Then in the mid-1980s, Amazing Facts expanded its increasingly popular media outreach to television. The clear, Bible-based programs proved to be powerful, life-changing messages for thousands of viewers around the world.
In 1994, Doug Batchelor, an energetic soul-winning evangelist and author, took the reins of the ministry. Pastor Doug is an innovative speaker with an unusual ability to communicate not only to churchgoers, but also the unchurched throughout the world. Under his dynamic leadership, the ministry has grown exponentially — reaching more people in more ways than ever before. Visit our website at www.amazingfacts.org.
Breath of Life began broadcasting in 1974. It was the dream of pastor and recording artist Walter Arties to create a program that would appeal to African-Americans looking for hope and guidance. For 23 years, Pastor C. D. Brooks was the featured speaker. In 1997, Pastor Walter L. Pearson, Jr., became the Speaker/Director and he continued the legacy begun by Pastors Arties and Brooks. Through the years, the broadcast broadened its target audience to include all those searching for hope and the assurance of God’s powerful message of salvation.
In December, 2010, Dr. Carlton P. Byrd assumed the role of Speaker/Director. Pastor Byrd is also the pastor of the Atlanta Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church and will continue as senior pastor along with his new responsibilities at Breath of Life.
Evangelism will continue to be a vital part of the ministry. Pastor Byrd will be holding several Christ-centered evangelistic crusades each year. But Pastor Byrd’s ministry does not end at the pulpit. Atlanta Berean practices active evangelism in the local community through feeding the homeless, clothing distribution and weekly prison ministry service. Breath of Life will also be reaching out to those who need physical as well as spiritual healing and hope. Visit our website at www.breathoflife.tv.
