“The way I see it evangelism is evangelism, you have qualified it as televangelism because of the medium we are using to share this wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ. But whatever methods of device you use the bottom line is there is nothing quite so straightforward and yet so complicated as the task of evangelism. Evangelism is our call to share our faith with our neighbours and friends, these days we have a range of options to use as platforms. I am excited to be on BAY TV you can catch me on Channel 260 on DSTV every Sunday 2:00pm, so don’t miss it.”
