BURLINGTON, ON – Crossroads Christian Communications marks its 50th Anniversary on June 2, 2012 and invites the public to participate in many of the special events happening at the Crossroads Centre during this significant year.
Crossroads has a strong legacy and on-going commitment to care for people and impact culture through media, emergency response, and its 24/7 care centre.
What started as Founder David Mainse’s 15-minute program following the late night news in Pembroke, Ontario, has grown into a multi-faceted communications organization that brings God’s message to people all over the world. Crossroads is a producer of faith and values media programs including 100 Huntley Street a daily live broadcast to millions of people, and the longest running daily television show in Canada. Crossroads also interacts with its viewers via 24/7 prayer lines, and it has been a highly respected and effective not-for-profit aid agency for over 25 years.
As part of the 50th Anniversary, Crossroads has commissioned several other productions, most recently a series of special documentaries called Canada Heart and Soul: Featuring Amazing People, Places, and Events that have defined a Nation. These documentaries are scheduled to run on Crossroads Television System (CTS) throughout the summer until the end of the year.
Between May 19 and September 3, Crossroads will be inviting its viewers to 50th Anniversary Tours of the Crossroads Centre in Burlington to include the exciting addition of a full-sized replica of the Old Testament Tabernacle and the broadcast studios. Those able to visit the Crossroads Centre may also take in various events, feature talks and concerts by Christian authors and musicians which are open to the public. Tickets will be available beginning April 10 on the Crossroads 50th website: www.crossroads.ca/50 .
