Day of Discovery is a long-running Christian television program, produced by RBC Ministries.
Each week, Day of Discovery’s 30-minute television broadcast offers viewers a look at current and historical events, social issues, prophecy, and issues of the Christian faith.
The program airs on stations across the United States and Canada. Most of their programs can also be viewed on their website. Day of Discovery channels have also been launched on Roku TV and Google TV. An Android App was launched in 2013 and is available in the Google Play store.
Day of Discovery is taped on location in the United States and around the world, including many programs filmed in Israel. The documentary-style program covers a diverse range of topics and formats including history, current events, theology, biography and music.
Day of Discovery’s four decades of programming makes it one of the longest continually running Christian broadcasts in US television history. Day of Discovery first aired on May 5, 1968 as a television ministry of Radio Bible Class (now known as RBC Ministries).
In its early years, the program was shot on location at Cypress Gardens, Florida. Along with inspirational music, it featured the Bible teaching of Richard De Haan, son of RBC’s founder Dr. M. R. De Haan, as well as other associate teachers.
Today, Mart De Haan, the son of Richard De Haan, is the frequent host for many Day of Discovery programs.
