Day #118: Give with CBN in Virginia Beach, VA

Virginia Beach, VA

This morning we sat in on a live 700 club broadcast at the Christian Broadcasting Network. It was interesting to watch the interviews and reports from the show take place just feet away from our seats.

After the broadcast ended, we toured the CBN headquarters building. The staff there were extremely friendly and it was neat to learn some of the history behind the network.

CBN is know for their tv show (700 Club), but did you know that they are also making a substantial philanthropic impact around the world?

Last year CBN partners provided:

  • More than 70 million pounds of food to America’s poor.
  • Medical treatment to more than 815,000 people around the world.
  • Fresh-water wells for more than 381,000 thirsty people.
  • Intestinal parasite “worm buster” treatment for more than 6.5 million children around the world.
  • A home and education to children at risk in more than 50 countries through Orphan’s Promise.
  • Prayer: The 700 Club Prayer Center received 3.6 million calls.

I know the 700 Club, and especially Pat Robertson, are controversial, but their commitment to humanitarian aid is apparent.

What do you think of the Christian Broadcasting Network? Do you watch the 700 Club? Why or why not?

Comments

  1. Yea not a fan of 700 Club or Pat Robertson :(

  2. I don’t watch the 700 club, and I think Pat Robertson is sometimes too controversial – however… since we don’t have a TV in our home and don’t routinely watch programing of any sort on our computers it isn’t much of an issue for us.

    I am glad to hear of another group that uses their influence to benefit others.
