Hope Channel Kenya is a premier television station that is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Kenya (East and West Kenya Union Conferences).
Located at East Kenya Union Conference Headquarters, in Nairobi, Hope Channel Kenya (HCK) has been in operation since November 2013.
HCK started to broadcast in Nairobi and its environs but in January 2015 went countrywide and so far covers parts of neighbouring countries such as Tanzania, Uganda, and South Sudan.
HCK produces and broadcasts programs every day of the week for 24 hours. So far we
produce and broadcast 50% local content and supplement with programs from our international channel (Hope Channel).
We boast of a viewership of about five million people half of which are Seventh-day Adventists. Our strongholds include Nairobi, Mombasa, Malindi, Eldoret, Nakuru, Kericho, Kisumu, Kitale, Marigat, Oljororok, Nyahururu, Nyeri, Embu, Meru, Machakos, Kitui, Mt Elgon, Migori, Kendu-Bay, Kisii, Kilgoris, Narok, and Kakamega, Garrissa, Mandera, among others; and parts of neighboring countries including Busia in Uganda, the Eastern parts of Arusha and Mwanza in Tanzania.
This is evidenced by the number of phone calls and text messages we receive from these areas for the various programs that we broadcast.
PurposeTo create awareness among the leadership at all levels and the membership challenging them on the need to reach out to both the un-entered areas and un-reached people groups with the gospel of Christ
1. That, this gospel of the kingdom must be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations (people groups), and then the end will come. Mathew 24:14. Hence each believer has a role to play in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
2. Mission is to be carried in a cross cultural manner so that the truth as stated in the Bible may be relevant to the receptors
3. Self support is a key component in establishing mission in new frontiers.
4. Special ministries should be established to reach out to different people groups with the everlasting gospel.
