Stakelbeck Joins CUFI: New Show Launches Exclusively on TBN February 25th
I’m thrilled to announce some very exciting news.
After ten great years at CBN News I’m moving on to a new adventure. I’ve accepted a position with Christians United for Israel (CUFI), America’s largest pro-Israel organization–with nearly 3 million members and counting–to serve as Director of the CUFI Watchman Project, a major multi-media initiative. The centerpiece of my new role will be hosting a weekly, 30-minute “Watchman” program seen exclusively on TBN, the world’s largest Christian television network–seen in over 100 million homes in the United States and many more around the globe.
I believe this new endeavor is a perfect fit and am very thankful that God has opened these incredible doors at CUFI and TBN. I couldn’t ask for two better organizations to partner with or two better leaders to work under in CUFI Chairman Pastor John Hagee and TBN Chairman Matt Crouch, two men with tremendous vision.
The adventure begins on February 25th–see details below!
Here is CUFI‘s announcement this morning:
We are thrilled to make a huge announcement: America’s largest pro-Israel organization is joining forces with the world’s largest Christian television network. Two weeks from tonight, on February 25, 2016, TBN will launch The Watchman, CUFI‘s new 30-minute weekly television show hosted by our newest employee, Erick Stakelbeck.
The Watchman is a newsmagazine-style program that will not only shine a light on the gathering threats to America’s and Israel’s security, but will also highlight the many uplifting, even miraculous, stories that unfold in Israel every day. The Watchman will offer commentary, analysis, on-the-ground reporting, and interviews with top American and Israeli decision makers.
The Watchman will also highlight the groundbreaking work CUFI is doing in communities across the United States–whether in churches, on college campuses, or on Capitol Hill–to strengthen the US-Israel relationship and activate, educate, and encourage Christians to stand with Israel.
We encourage you to tune in (or set your DVRs) for every Thursday at 11:30 PM ET (starting on February 25th) for The Watchman. You are also able to watch LIVE online.
