Vision: 
With an international headquarters in Cyprus, SAT-7 broadcasts Christian satellite television 24/7 throughout more than seventy countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe. The network supports five channels: SAT-7 ARABIC and SAT-7 KIDS in Arabic, SAT-7 PARS in Farsi, SAT-7 TURK in Turkish, and the newest Arabic family channel, SAT-7 PLUS. The ministry’s mission is to build the Church through non-political, non-partisan, biblically based programming. More than 80% of programming is produced in the Middle East by Middle Easterners. In a region characterized by high illiteracy rates and closed countries, SAT-7 broadcasts uncensored Jesus’ message of love, forgiveness, and hope to more than 17 million regular viewers—women and children, rich and poor, urban and rural—in the privacy of their homes. SAT-7’s convergence of theology, technology, and timeliness positions it for greater impact for such a time as this.
