GOOD TV CEO：Tony Tseng
My calling to media ministry started with a vision to win more unsaved Chinese people for the Kingdom of God. Most of them have been nurtured in false religions worshiping false gods for generations. They strive for success but live in bondage and deception. When I met Christ, I knew He is the only answer to life. Since then, I devoted myself to the gospel through organizing evangelism conferences and gospel luncheons and dinners. However, these earnest attempts only reached a limited number of people, and I felt dissatisfied.
In 1998, a group of Taiwanese Christians and church leaders received a vision from God to establish a Christian TV channel ─ GOOD TV, and God called me to this ministry to start the first Chinese Christian TV network in the world. By God’s providence and miraculous guidance, GOOD TV has grown and expanded into a global multimedia platform for the gospel reaching Chinese people around the world.
Media ministry requires enormous resources and efforts, but God has faithfully provided for GOOD TV’s needs through the last 20 years, allowing GOOD TV to operate solely on donations.
By the end of 1998, 80% of the cable TV networks in Taiwan carried our programs, and in 2002, 100% carried our programs. By God’s grace in 2005, GOOD TV moved to channel 15, making it easy for channel surfers to encounter our programs.
In 2000, GOOD TV was made available to everyone in Taiwan and Chinese communities throughout Asia. God also led GOOD TV to establish offices in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the US.
In addition to GOOD TV’s financial needs, God also provided for the construction of a brand new building in 2012, making GOOD TV the first fully HD digital TV station in Taiwan.
By making GOOD TV completely digital, God made it possible for GOOD TV to fully engage new media platforms in 2017. Every month, GOOD TV reaches more than 1.4 million people from over 180 countries via our website, mobile app, YouTube channel, Facebook Page, Instagram, and LINE.
In the West, salvation is a matter of “choice,” but for most Chinese people, it is a matter of “chance.” GOOD TV’s vision is to be that “chance” encounter for Chinese people who have never heard the gospel before.
I invite you to join us through your prayers, partnership, programming, and other supports. Let us fulfill Christ’s Great Commission and preach the gospel to the 1.4 billion Chinese people around the world still waiting for salvation and the chance to hear the GOOD news.
GOOD TV CEO：
Family is an integral part of our lives. GOOD TV cares about families, and by focusing on families, we also reach people with the gospel. Over the years, we developed family programs, family training materials, a family care hotline, and online counseling services called GOODear.
Our family programs provide quality content for all ages from children to seniors. The in-depth discussions on family issues of all aspects touch people’s hearts and prepare them to hear the message of the gospel.
Designed by experts, family training materials work with our family programs and provide family education to our viewers. Training materials are available for download on our website.
GOOD TV is the only station in Taiwan with a dedicated hotline for families. During our family program broadcasts, viewers seeking assistance can call the Family Care Hotline number displayed on their screens. Trained volunteers provide a listening ear and helpful advice to callers. Those in need of further assistance are referred to local church partners, so they can receive follow up help.
To provide counseling services for young people and reach this group of mostly web users, we launched GOODear, an online service using online chat and emails to listen, share, and pray with them over the internet.
