Alliance for Christian Media

A place for mainline Christian media.


Tuned in for nearly three quarters of a century.


Founded in 1945 originally as The Episcopal Radio and TV Foundation and the Protestant Radio & Television Center, the Alliance for Christian Media has been instrumental in broadcasting the acclaimed Protestant Hour (now Day1) radio programs as well as producing Emmy-winning TV programming such as The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Shadowlands.

The Alliance for Christian Media is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and the parent organization of Day1 Radio and Day1.org as well as the Episcopal media Center. Visit the Alliance website by going to http://www.allianceforchristianmedia.org.

Our vision and mission…

The Vision of the Alliance for Christian Media is to be a leader in helping people encounter the good news of Jesus Christ through innovactive communication and technology.

Our mission is to create and provide resources that connect the world of faith with the world in which people live and that support congregations in fufilling their mission.

Values

  • We honor and seek to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ as expressed in the historic mainline Protestant churches of the United States.
  • We recognize the church has a primary responsibility to proclaim the good  news to those outside its membership.
  • We believe a strategic way to spread the good news is through communications technologies such as radio, television, the Internet and related new media.
  • We value the highest standards of excellence in all programs produced by the Alliance.
  • We focus on content first, technology second.
  • We value our independence from official church bodies but seek partnerships with them in fulfillment of our mission.
  • We value the diversity of our denominational voices.
  • We value a moderate expression of the good news and promote the nexus of faith and action.

Assumptions

  • We build upon a 72-year tradition of excellence in programming.
  • We assume growing recognition of the Day1 brand.
  • We assume a strong management team, strong support staff and a strong Board of Trustees.
  • We assume state-of-the-art audio production facilities.
  • We assume a unique niche exists for our mission.
  • We assume and value hundreds of faithful donors who contribute financially to support the mission of the Alliance and we believe we have a strong case for support.
  • We have a strong financial balance sheet and an endowment fund that protects us from operating out of fear and panic.


About the Merger that Created the Alliance

In 2004 two historic organizations, the Episcopal Media Center and Day1 Radio, joined together in a merger to further their shared mission to the mainline Protestant Church becoming what is now known as the Alliance for Christian Media.

Out of the unique multimedia strengths of these two organizations comes an organization with nearly 150 years of experience in religious communications, an outstanding board of trustees and a hardworking and dedicated staff.
