CBN Asia or Christian Broadcasting Networks Asia is a non-stock, non-profit corporation established in the Philippines in 1994. Its vision, mission and ministries are inspired by those of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), founded in the United States by televangelist Pat Robertson in 1961 and which is now one of the world’s largest mass media christian television organizations.

Strategy[edit]

CBN Asia undertakes several ministries in reaching Asian nations with the Gospel. Its major thrust is through The 700 Club Asia, a locally produced weeknight television program, as well as other TV specials that are viewed nationwide and in other countries around the world. Its ministries include humanitarian aid and community development projects through Operation Blessing Foundation. The Asian Center for Missions enables reaching different people groups in Asia through the deployment of Asian cross-cultural missionaries.

ACM’s missionary strategy is to train and deploy Asians as church-planting teams utilizing community development and other holistic ministries to reach the unevangelized.

Asian center for missions[edit]

The Asian Center for Missions was formed in response to Christ’s call to “go and make disciples of all nations . . .” (Matthew 28:19). It is not exclusively a CBN Asia project, but an Asia-wide network for spreading the Gospel, comprising the following ministries: Philippines for Jesus Movement (PJM), the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), the Asian Seminary of Christian Ministries (ASCM), the International Bible Society, and other Asian church and fellowship groups.

Operation blessing foundation[edit]

Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, Inc. (OB) is a non-profit humanitarian aid foundation that provides short-term medical, disaster relief, feeding and community development assistance to economically disadvantaged people in the Philippines and Asia. OB is committed to responding with appropriate resources to people in dire need by mobilizing volunteer medical teams, logistics and other trained emergency relief personnel to handle the procurement, transportation and distribution of food, clothing, medical and other supplies. OB continues to enhance its capacity to provide community assistance programs to serve as many people as possible.

Structure[edit]

OB works with the appropriate government agencies, such as the Department of Health and the Department of Social Welfare and Development, and with non-government organizations in the target localities. It is duly registered with the Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Department of Social Welfare and Development as a donee institution.

Background[edit]

OB is the Asian counterpart of the US-based Operation Blessing International. Since 1994, OB humanitarian missions have expanded their reach from areas all over the Philippines to other Asian countries like China, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Taiwan. In 1996, OB officially became the humanitarian arm of CBN Asia, Inc. which was founded by Gordon Robertson, son of The Christian Broadcasting Network Chairman and Founder M.G. “Pat” Robertson.

Statistics[edit]

Since 1994, OB has served over half a million people in the Philippines and several other Asian countries. More than 5,000 doctors, dentists, surgeons, nurses, and other non- medical volunteers have given their services for free in over 70 humanitarian missions.[citation needed]
