Reynolds noted that the launch at San Quentin, California's oldest state prison, follows a similar launch in June at the state's second oldest facility, Folsom Prison, which houses over 3,000 inmates. "We are now very close to completing our coverage of California's state correctional facilities," said Reynolds, "which means that tens of thousands of men and women now have access to a broad array of programming that will spiritually nurture and educate them, impacting their lives for now and eternity."
For the past several years TBN Second Chance has worked closely with correctional officials and cable and satellite companies like Glorystar Satellite Systems to bring Christian television to prison facilities in California, Florida, Ohio, Louisiana, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Colorado, Mississippi, Alabama, Missouri -- 31 states so far. TBN covers the cost of equipment and installation, and inmates are provided with up to four of TBN's most popular networks.
TBN founder and President Paul Crouch said that TBN Second Chance represents the heart of the mission the network has pursued since its launch almost 40 years ago. "Broadcasting the life-changing message of the gospel to every corner of the earth, and into the most desperate of situations -- that has been God's call to TBN from day one," he said. "And we never cease to thank Him for the success He has given us through all of our networks, as well as through programs like TBN Second Chance."
