Alliance for Christian Media

A place for mainline Christian media.
Tuned in for more than half a century
Founded in 1945 and originally called The Episcopal Radio and TV Foundation, The Alliance for Christian Media has been instrumental in producing Emmy-winning TV programming such as The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Shadowlands. And for more than 50 years, we’ve co-sponsored the Peabody Award-winning “The Protestant Hour,” now known as “Day 1 Radio.”

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

It is our mission…

The Mission of the Alliance for Christian Media is to be the leader in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ through all existing and emerging communication technology. Its goal is to enhance the voice of the historic mainline churches in America to connect the world of faith with the world in which people live. (Adopted by the Board of Trustees, 2005)

Values

  • We honor and seek to promote 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 Gospel to those outside its membership.
  • We believe a strategic way to spread the Gospel is through emerging electronic technology 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 Gospel and promote the nexus of faith and action.

Assumptions

  • We build upon a 63-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.
  • G. 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

Dear Friends

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 over 120 years of experience in religious communications, an outstanding board of trustees and a hardworking and dedicated staff. In 2005 our board of trustees adopted the new mission of the Alliance for Christian Media, officially bringing the two historic ministries together.

What has changed for Episcopal Media Center and Day1?

The combined strengths of these two organizations gives the Alliance an incredible step towards the future. The Episcopal Media Center has provided communications expertise to the delivery of the message of the gospel for well over half a century and continues to do so under the auspices of the Alliance for Christian Media for the wider mainline Protestant denominations. Day1, now part of the Alliance, is beginning a new era focusing on two enormous projects in the near future. In the years to come we hope to begin digitally restoring our 65+ years worth of sermon archives from the radio program, formerly known as the Protestant Hour. Once digitally restored we plan to roll out a cutting edge web initiative for that content making it freely available to public.

It is a very exciting time indeed.
