Warsaw, Poland [Jan Kot, tedNEWS; CD EUDNews]. The beginning of 2013 marks a breakthrough in the media ministry of the Polish Union Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (PUC). A dynamic growth of the Voice of Hope Adventist Media Centre (VoH AMC) resulted in launching the Hope Channel Poland, which extended the worldwide family of the Adventist television channels.

So far the programmes in Polish have been broadcast 24/7 online, but plans are being made to enter the cable and even satellite networks.

“We are grateful to our God who blessed us so much that evangelism through the professional online television in Polish became fact. Using this medium of communication we waste not a minute in continuous proclamation of the Word of God”, says Pastor Paweł Lazar, PUC president and Voice of Hope manager.

Online round-the-clock Adventist TV broadcast in Polish was started back in 2010 when during the General Conference Session in Atlanta the VoH AMC team in Warsaw decided to rebroadcast the most important parts of the session together with other previously prepared programmes.

The Hope Channel Poland is preparing for the Mission to the Cities that is going to be carried out in Warsaw in 2014. At the moment, special billboards advertising this Adventist channel are being designed and will appear in a number of Polish cities. The first one was installed in Zakopane, the winter capital of Poland visited by 3 million tourists a year.
