New Format And Studio For Award-Winning TV Program

The award-winning television show, The Way of the Master, premiered in 2003 with co-hosts Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort. For the past 15 years, the show has been inspiring Christians living in more than 190 countries. Living Waters, the ministry that produces the program, is changing the format this next season. The show will be moving from a seasonal, 13-episode format to a year-round weekly broadcast to expand its reach. Viewers will be able to watch brand-new episodes on a weekly basis throughout the year.

The Way of the Master offers viewers good news, as they will hear the gospel proclaimed in compelling on-the-street witnessing. The show tackles difficult subjects, as they answer common questions and objections of the Christian faith and address challenging arguments—all designed to be both informative and entertaining.

To assist with the production of upcoming episodes, Living Waters has established a fundraising campaign. For more information, visit

Timmy’s Playroom, an outreach initiative of the Tim Tebow Foundation, provides an atmosphere that allows children to take their minds off their medical treatment and just be kids again. Since the first Timmy’s Playroom was built in 2012, thousands of families have come through the doors of all eight locations. Each Timmy’s Playroom is customized to fit the function and form of the respective hospitals, but most include a football field floor, custom-built lockers for seating, football-shaped chairs, flat-screen televisions and the latest multimedia and video game systems. Each Timmy’s Playroom cost between $50,000 and $65,000, depending on its size and the amount of customization required. With the generous donation from supporters, there is a Timmy’s Playroom in the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Tampa.
