Kenyan Diaspora Professor Launches TV Station
Kenyans will enjoy authentic Christian messages, songs, and sermons from a new TV station launched in the country by a Kenyan who lives in America.
Bibilia Broadcasting Network (BBN) was launched at the Gospel Confirmation Centre in Machakos town on Sunday.
BBN CEO and Founder Prof Teddy Njoroge Kamau chose to launch the TV station in the church because of richness in the Christian Service he experienced when he visited the church before.
“The choirs are amazing, singing Swahili songs and dancing to the glory of God. Everyone is part of the worship, be they young or old.”
“The Bishop is also a man given to prayer and has been in the ministry of the gospel for many years,” said Prof Kamau.
The launch was attended by Rev Christopher Mutai, Bishop Philip Karaya, Rev Lee and Sandy Weiss and hundreds of locals who convened at the church. Prof Kamau shared from Romans 12 on giving your life as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to the Lord.
He used an engaging depiction of this scripture by mixing raw eggs, flour and water to be cooked to demonstrate how one gives their life as a sacrifice to the Lord.
He charged the congregation to surrender their lives to God, wholly.
The TV station will broadcast an assortment of programmes, all geared towards growing the body of Christ with Sunday morning broadcasting a live church service.
The station will feed the soul of believers through sermons from different servants of God, songs and other content under development.
It will also broadcast hourly news bulletins to inform the viewers on happenings across the world, giving special attention to church and religious news.
Ms Weiss said the TV station name was prophetic; Bibilia means the Bible in the Swahili language, Broadcasting means Spread and Network means Connection.

She challenged the station managers never to forget the power behind the station name.
Other messages shared during the launch included:
‘The church does not need politicians to come and give money, but for politicians to give their lives to Christ’.
‘The enemy enjoys when you do not understand the enemy; that he is a defeated enemy’.
‘Will Africa have theology 150 years from today? This question is answered clearly by what message is at the centre of our songs and sermons’.
‘The world thinks the church is just meeting on Sunday and giving an offering, no, it is about having a kingdom mentality’.
Anything that is not part of the great commission will kill the faith in you at a later date’.
