You can watch our program on the Trinity Broadcasting Network(TBN) every Thursday at 11:30 AM Central and every Tuesday at 5:00 AM Central. We are on Promiseland TV(KTAQ) in the Dallas/Ft.Worth region every day at 10:00 PM.
Our first live program from inside the prison walls took place in 1996. Every live broadcast is downlinked to prison units with satellite receivers around Texas and in neighboring states.
Mike Barber Ministries , along with their partners and associates, have launched a nationwide effort to install satellite receiving equipment in every prison unit in the United States.
The State of Texas and the State of Colorado have already approved the installation of satellite equipment in all prisons in the state. Colorado installations are complete, and 127 Texas state and private institutions are on-line. The first three dishes in Oklahoma's prisons have also been installed.
Prison officials see this project as very positive in helping inmates find direction for their future and are eager to cooperate with the program administration within the individual units. Funds for the project in each state are being donated by churches and private organizations and individuals. The satellite equipment is given totally free-of-charge to each prison facility.
Once the equipment is approved and installed, video programs are scheduled at the institution according to their individual needs. An agenda of the live satellite programs is sent to each unit for its coordination. Special staff training programs are available via satellite for those in charge of juvenile offenders, along with other programs such as medical services for geriatric and aging inmates. These and other programs are available at no cost to the prison system through Mike Barber Ministries .
