DETROIT – The Impact Network has been making a lot of moves lately. The only 100% African American owned and operated national Christian television network in the US has recently expanded its reach and programming. In January alone, Impact has launched on Charter Communications’ Spectrum Silver package in select markets, partnered with Dr. Juanita Bynum and become a part of Comcast cable’s Northeast and Western region.

Founded in 2010 by Bishop Wayne T. Jackson and Dr. Beverly Jackson in Detroit, Michigan, the network’s mission is to provide exceptional Christian and educational programming that empowers the spiritual, physical, financial and emotional needs of the community and viewers.

It features programming on urban ministries and gospel lifestyle entertainment including television ministries by Jackson, Bishop TD Jakes, Dr. Creflo Dollar, Pastor Paula White, Pastor Rod Parsley, Bishop IV Hilliard, Bishop Charles Blake, Bishop Stanly Williams, Bishop Paul Morton, Pastor Joel Osteen, Bynum and more.

It also offers original programming like Dr. Beverly Jackson’s “Living Free,” “The Jewel Tankard Show,” legendary gospel icon Bobby Jones, “Impact Better Health/Diet Free Life” with Dr. Robert Ferguson, and more. Bynum is an empowerment lecturer, platinum recording artist, New York Times best- selling author, international conference host and entrepreneur, who also serves as president and CEO of her namesake ministry and company, respectively.

According to a statement issued by Impact, she will teach on the principles of empowerment living as it affects the life of women worldwide with her multi- cultural reach. Jackson said they are excited by all of the growth the network is experiencing and teaming up with Bynum to edify people.

“I look forward to working and praying with Dr. Juanita Bynum, she is a true prayer warrior, and millions of people will be truly blessed by her presence on The Impact Network,” Jackson said.

Jackson also gave credit to Charter Communications and Comcast for having a commitment to diversity shown by their “power, support and commitment to minorities, women and the African-American community by offering the Impact Network to its customers.”
