Arabic programs 24/7

The Arabic language Al Hayat channel was launched in 2003 ja Keymedia is still responsible for its governance.The content and style of the channel is challenging Islam and its teachings with the message of the Gospels. The programs on the channel have evoked wide interest and response among individuals in Arabic speaking countries as well as in secular media. The Al Hayat follow-up team has recorded over a hundred thousand conversions through the programs on Al Hayat.

There are some 40 individual program series running on the channel. Keymedia is responsible of 20 of those. Many of the Al Hayat TV hosts have become very famous personalities in the Arabic world. Some of the series draw millions of viewers every week. Every Monday–Friday there is a one hour live show where viewers can call and ask questions during the show.

Global follow-up

We have set up a wide network of Arabic speaking follow-up teams, volunteers in Churches, a 24/7 call center and a response team for social media. All this contributes to the spiritual growth of the converts and helps them to find a local congregation or home Church. The purpose of this is to help and empower Christian minorities of the Arabic world and plant new Churches especially for the believers with Muslim background.
