The Miracle Channel is Canada’s first Christian television station, and has been broadcasting religious themed shows since being founded in 1996. Funded largely by donations from the faithful, it has been ably led by Pastor Leon Fontaine since 2001. The current schedule offers numerous sermons and talk shows, as well as documentaries, movies, news and children’s programs. “”Something for everyone”” accurately summarises the philosophy of the chain, which bases its appeal on the variety of its programming, and seeks to bring Christ into the living room of every family. It provides its viewers with plenty of moral and spiritual guidance, helping to support them as they face the hazards and hardships of their lives. This includes inspirational interviews with influential personalities, who communicate their Christian values, and offer encouraging examples for believers to follow. You can also listen to various star preachers like Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince or Bobby Schuller, all of whom have made it their life’s mission to lead the faithful on the path to a full and rich life in the Christian faith. They seek to form their viewers into a family of believers, offering them a real community to be part of, even if they are thousands of miles apart. They also encourage viewers to help others through missions. The Miracle Channel seeks to pursue a dynamic, modern and relaxed approach to faith, even injecting a little humour and music into their shows. It incorporates programs that have been proven successes in the United States, as “”Praise the Lord”” or “”Joyce Meyer’s Enjoying Everyday Life””.
