GDYNIA, Poland, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the world's premier faith-and-family broadcaster, has announced the December 1st launch of its newest international network, TBN Polska, covering the nation of Poland with Christian television programming 24 hours a day.
"We are thrilled to announce that for the first time individuals and families in Poland now have round-the-clock access to life-changing Christian programming through TBN Polska," said TBN Chairman Matt Crouch. "We are excited to see how this groundbreaking network will positively impact individuals, families, and communities throughout Poland with the message of hope and grace through Jesus." While the Catholic Church has played a major role in Poland's national identity for centuries, nearly fifty years of efforts by a communist-ruled government to destroy the Christian faith left Poland spiritually broken. Even though many Polish people are religious, "few actually have a personal faith in Jesus Christ," explained Krzysztof Rompa, a Polish pastor and president of TBN Polska. "Millions are searching for something that will make a real difference in life." In fact, in a land of over 38 million people, there are only around 40,000 born-again, evangelical Christians — about .1 percent of Poland's population. That is why Rompa and others began the process of bringing Christian television to their nation. "We believe television is one of the most powerful tools available to take the message of Jesus' love to Poland," he said.
