Spreading the Word

19 May 2013 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet Kurt Johansen and the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores Luke's Gospel.

Kurt's story
Kurt Johansen directs the only Christian TV ministry that has local programming in Arabic, Turkish and Farsi. Kurt talks to us about the opportunity that satellite TV has presented in helping to spread God’s Word in a region of the world where being a Christian can be a challenge. Kurt aims to use his programs to bring positive messages of Christianity to the Middle East and North Africa, where often only the negative is broadcast. Kurt shares his excitement about future prospects as he aims to set up Christian children’s programs that will spread the good news of God's love to future generations.

Wesley Mission story—Wesley Supported Employment
We take a look at how Wesley Mission is supporting people with a disability to find meaningful and rewarding employment and the significant impact it makes on their lives. We take a tour of Wesley Mission’s Employment Services David Morgan Centre—the operational base for Wesley Packaging, Wesley Cleaning and Wesley Gardening—and meet those whose lives have been transformed.

Keith's reflection
The Rev Dr Keith Garner leads this week’s sermon with a reading from Luke’s Gospel. 

Guest performers
This week we are joined by Liz Cole and Leigh Cunningham. Liz's remarkable gift for music is well beyond her young years, combining musical talent with poetic lyrics. Leigh has gone from humble beginnings as a singer to creating his own successful band.
