LOS ANGELES, Dec. 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- JCTV youth network lights up the hearts of America's young viewers this month with its wonderfully varied Christmas programming. JCTV is an extension of the Trinity Broadcasting Network's (TBN) faith-based network, a favorite with American audiences and millions of viewers across six continents.
While there are many specials airing throughout the Christmas season -- from Casting Crown, a JCTV Christmas special from Knott's Berry Farm with Mr. T, to Denver & the Mile High Orchestra -- three very special programs are earmarked this Christmas as programs not to be missed.
When Love First Cried is JCTV's exclusive and historic Christmas concert from the contemporary Christian band Sonicflood. Not only is this a musical treat with the band performing songs from the its first Christmas CD, but the show is also filled with emotion as it’s the last performance with Sonicflood's lead guitar player, Phil Baquie, prior to his leaving the band to serve in Afghanistan. When Love First Cried airs December 11th at 8PM; December 14th at 10AM; December 21st at 11AM; December 24th at 11:30PM; and December 25th at 4:30Pm (PST).
Based on the short story by Jerry B. Jenkins -- best-selling author of the Left Behind series -- Midnight Clear chronicles a bleak Christmas Eve for two small town Arizona residents. Eva (K. Callan) and Lefty (Stephen Baldwin) are both desperate...and both suicidal. But they experience unexpected hope as the result of chance encounters with strangers. An unflinching look at loneliness and desperation, this award-winning film reminds us of the profound impact simple kindness can have. Midnight Clear airs December 13th at noon and 5PM; and December 25th at 2PM and 5PM (PST).
Celebrate 25 Years of History on New Year's Eve with JCTV. Real Videos is the longest running nationally televised Christian music video show. This winter marks the 25th anniversary of the show; JCTV is commemorating the milestone with a two-hour special. Watch JCTV's review of the great artist interview and music videos that have aired on Real Video over the years on December 31st at noon, and again at 10PM (PST).
"JCTV always strives to give something back to faithful viewers by offering programming that is both entertaining and uplifting," says Mark McCallie, programming director for TBN's JCTV network.
