Introducing Christian Fitness on Big Bend CTN TV
What was that spark of passion that got you started in producing Christian Fitness?
We had several pastor friends that were not able to completely fulfill the call of God on their lives because they weren’t physically able to do so. They wanted to do so much more for God but they lacked the physical stamina to do so. One of them asked if we could help them to get into better shape and from there we realized that instead of doing a personal training session, we should tape it and encourage all Christians to participate.
What encourages you to keep producing?
We are continually encouraged to produce new shows by the viewers. We receive phone calls, letters, emails and even in person comments asking for more help.
Can you give me some quotes as a testimonial from viewers?
“We praise God for your ministry”.
“I just wanted to let you know how much your teaching Philippians 4:8 blessed me today. A reminder of how I need to watch what I think and I am the one who has to change it. May God continue to Bless and Prosper you.“
“I just wanted to say “thank you” for the wonderful show! It is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I tape the show and exercise while the kids are still sleeping in the morning. The verses, nutrition tips….everything is wonderful. I look forward to working out.
Thank you and May the Lord bless you!”
“My 14 year-old daughter, Rachael, and I exercised along with you today. We did the workout using the bands. Those squats got each our breathing rates up!”
“It is wonderful how God has gifted you with such a creative way to minister to people both physically and spiritually.”
“Bless the LORD, O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name!!! May He richly bless you and your ministry as well.”
“I wanted to write and say that your program is such a blessing. I just discovered your program not too long ago and started using it. It is awesome! I have a 16 year old son who is autistic and I homeschool him. Physical Education has ALWAYS been a struggle for him, he doesn’t enjoy it and he has some trouble following the movements required for fitness. Well I started him doing your program with me daily. He gets a great workout, he actually enjoyed it and your Bible verses help me to have a topic for our discussions about God and the Bible! I ask that God blesses you all and please do NOT ever take your program off the air! To God’s glory you are helping my son so much and it makes him more self confident and more able to reach out to others…Jesus Bless You… “
Answer: Our theme verse has always been III John 1:2 –
“Beloved I pray that in all things you may prosper, and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.”
We love this verse because it is about the spiritual growth and relationship with Jesus (soul prospering), and is also a prayer and declaration that all aspects of life, including physical health. Be prosperous.
