He's Alive Broadcasting Celebrates Anniversary
Friends of He's Alive Broadcasting celebrated the 10th anniversary of the television station on May 16 at the Upper Columbia Conference office in Spokane. Marlo Fralick, He's Alive president, coordinated the gathering, which included a dinner and program.
Fralick recounted a number of blessings from God that made possible the station's launch and later the antenna's move to a prime site on Tower Mountain. Today, He's Alive television is reaching out to thousands of people in the Spokane area with programming from Three Angels Broadcasting Network (3ABN) as well as several locally produced programs. During the gathering Fralick introduced three individuals, Marjuerite Carlson, Robert Gray and Tim Sjostrom, who had joined the Adventist Church through the ministry of the station. Each shared their story of how God touched them through Channel 52.
Fralick also shared how the He's Alive board recently stepped out in faith and increased the station's budget by 47 percent to enable them to hire Joe Stanfill as a full-time station manager. He urged the friends of He's Alive to financially rally around this decision, which will allow the station to improve and grow.
Stanfill, who has a degree from Eastern Washington University in communications, then shared his story as well as his dream for the station, which met with an enthusiastic response from the group.
Tammy Larson, an employee of 3ABN and member of Last Generation Ministries, sang a number of songs for the celebration. While Mollie Steenson, who is in charge of operations at 3ABN and is Danny Shelton's assistant, shared about the network and its work around the world.
Though the group reflected on the blessings of the past, there was considerable excitement about where God is taking the station in the future. Many of those at the anniversary celebration sensed that the station was about to take another significant step forward, and they were thrilled.
