TBN Begins Filming on Ambitious Docu-Series “The State of Faith”

LOS ANGELES (March 12, 2018) – Trinity Broadcasting Network announced that it has begun production on The State of Faith, an unprecedented documentary series that will explore the history of Christianity and its current scope throughout the world.


Through a global exploration across more than 20 key geographic regions, The State of Faith will capture groundbreaking footage and interviews with influential voices and leaders within the faith, charting the historical path the Gospel journeyed, and exploring where, why, and exactly how it spread from 12 followers of Jesus to more than two billion believers worldwide.


“Visually, this is going to be Blue Planet meets National Geographic’s The Story of God with Morgan Freeman,” said TBN Chairman Matt Crouch.


TBN will leverage remote programing, live broadcasts, and edited packages to develop the series, which will air across multiple platforms over a 12-month span and represent more than 50 hours of broadcast, and by the time it airs, will have been in development for three-and-a-half years. The series is slated to premier on TBN in January 2020.


“We aim to reveal the impact Christians and the message of hope and grace have had over generations — from the biggest cities in the world to the most remote villages,” said Crouch. “The Gospel went from being spread on foot by Jesus and His disciples to being sent out at light speed to all four corners of the globe via satellite. That’s a truly remarkable story worth telling!”


Among the regions covered in The State of Faith will be the Eastern Mediterranean, China, North Africa, Southern Europe, the Caribbean islands, Southeast Asia, Israel, South Africa, Brazil and South America, North America, the United Kingdom and Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, Russia and Eastern Europe, Northern Europe, Latin America, Central Africa, India, Central Asia, and the Philippines/Indonesia/New Guinea.


The year-long series will examine the social, economic, and historical significance the spread of Christianity has had on the world. “Pop culture has been defining Christianity for years,” Crouch noted. The State of Faith will seek to be intellectually and emotionally honest about our true place in the world. This is an opportunity for us, as Christians, to appreciate our wins, learn from our losses, and be inspired by what can come next.”
