Our team launched this practical series a year ago. The videos average six to eight minutes and are presented in a Christian TED Talk format. We have been pleased with the variety of programs and responses.
To date, we have completed 68 episodes from 10 speakers. One episode was shared 95 times, and we think this high number could be due to the topic that was discussed. The earlier episodes are on YouTube. We have not finished uploading them to Facebook where we get the biggest number of views. Filipinos are some of the highest users of social media in the world.
Here is one example of a recent program and our feedback:
Have you ever experienced trying to do the right thing – and you come out the 'kontrabida' or the 'bad guy'? When you try to right a wrong, and people bash or condemn you for it? Our speaker, Dan Andrew Cura, understands how it feels to be criticized and misunderstood – especially since his motives and intentions were for the 'greater good'. Does that sound familiar to you? So, if you are going through this experience, Dan's talk may be the encouragement that you need today! Watch, learn and feel free to Share It Forward! 🙂

One viewer said,
“I always listen because I learn lots of things. Thank you, Brother Andrew Cura. Continue teaching the Word of God. I’m also sharing this with my brothers and sisters in Christ and even with my children and grandchildren.”
We recently had over 700 views from Saudi Arabia of our episode on Dealing with Stress. This same episode had a very high viewership from males, 18-24 years old. Previous episodes of viewers had been men and women over 45 years old, with some in the 18-24 age bracket. For now, we think the topics chosen make a big difference.
