On our 9th anniversary, we celebrate and rejoice in what God has done with trueGOD Television Networks. In 2016, God increased our outreach and broadcasting abilities. It was a remarkable year that began with our relocation from the Metro-Atlanta area back to the Cincinnati-Dayton area where trueGOD was founded.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Amplifying the Message Webinar
You won’t want to miss this special multi-media event on February 16, 2017 entitled, “Amplifying the Message.”
This seminar is for pastors and church administrators. It focuses on how to apply strategic tools and technology to your ministry that will greatly amplify your message locally, regionally and globally. The presenter is the Director of trueGOD Television Networks, Franklin Mayfield.
2016 trueGODtv Update:
Launched the new Info.trueGOD.tv site. We replaced our marketing.truegod.tv and catalog.truegod.tv sites with one informative, e-commerce enabled website that does an excellent job promoting the services we provide to ministries all over the USA. Visit: http://info.truegod.tv
Jesus Film Project presents Jesus in over 1,400 languages. Our goal is to broadcast all the languages available, beginning with the 118 languages we already broadcast on trueGOD.tv. We currently broadcast The Jesus Film in 23 languages. There is a cost to acquire each film, but the Lord provides and we are thrilled to broadcast this message. As they say at the Jesus Film Project, “When people encounter Jesus, everything changes.”
OmniCast Live & OmniChannel. Unified broadcasting on almost every device, platform and social network. On a Thursday in October, 2016, God spoke to our founder, Franklin Mayfield, and said, OmniCast Live. Then on Friday, He spoke again, saying, OmniChannel. Both times, He immediately revealed what those words meant. Franklin saw a new platform that used our experience in App development, combined with our CDN base streaming and existing broadcasting platforms to reach across over 16 different platforms; mobile apps, TV apps, web apps, social platforms and web browsers. There was nothing like it among the Christian broadcasting companies and after further research, nothing was found comparable to its scope in secular broadcasting either. Franklin immediately began cost analysis, project planning, producing the marketing materials and launched the products. Today, we have a number of customers who have signed on to the vision to broadcast “everywhere on everything,” which is our slogan. Traditional TV Networks, mega-churches, internet only TV networks are now using our new Omni platforms:
Solid Rock Church – OmniCast Live. We are thrilled to provide this new technology to SRC with the goal of amplifying the reach of this mega-church 16-fold beyond its current approach. http://solidrockchurch.org
SermonIndex.net is updating their channel on trueGOD with new content. They will be duplicating archives on various Christian streaming sites to amplify their reach and provide redundancy for this important resource of Christian programming.
IBN Television is now broadcasting online using trueGOD.tv technology. We are thrilled to serve and broadcast the IBN Television network. They are utilizing our CDN based broadcasting platform, internet VOD broadcasting and the new OmniCast Live platform. Apps for each of the 16+ broadcasting platforms are being launched as we speak. We are providing IBN with FCC compliant closed caption broadcasting, multi-language viewing, cloud encoding, transcoding and more. Also, IBN launched a refresh of their website with our players providing all of the broadcasting with the current schedule of shows being played each day.

CDN Redundancy. We provide not just the best streaming platform, but an extended redundant platform with multi-CDN redundancy for broadcasters requiring a high level of performance at a very low price as well. In plain English, our reach is about 3 fold what it was 4 years ago and 100 times what it was 8 years ago. We consistently reach almost every nation of the world every month.
48,000+ uploads; video, audio, TV & Radio players created. We just broke this milestone February 3rd, just in time for this review. Individuals, Ministries, TV Network, Radio Stations, and our team are adding content daily to our platform. All encoded and optimized for playback on all devices. This will rapidly expand with the new relationships that we have acquired, and what God will do in this coming year.
360° VR Live and VOD Streaming. This last year we added the ability to stream and broadcast on demand 360° VR video. This exciting format is becoming more and more popular, and is used by many of the major networks in their experimental broadcasts. YouTube even launched YouTube 360, that contains only this type of video.
Growth and expansion. In 2016, we had visitors from 213 countries, protectorates and islands, speaking 236 different languages. 8,143 Cities visited trueGOD.tv last year.
The future. We have exciting things planned for 2017; including expansion of the Omni product line, Adding languages, additional platforms and our new 2017 interface for trueGOD.tv.
Please continue to pray for us. With all the great accomplishments comes warfare and struggle, but “we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” And as God spoke to my wife and partner, Arletia Mayfield concerning provision, He said “I provide for My Vision.” God has truly carried us these 9 years, and we rejoice and believe that he will continue to be faithful to us as we continue to be faithful to Him.
