Reaching millions of perishing souls has always been the heartbeat of Bro. Satish Kumar and the only way to do so was to reach them via electronic media (television). In 2003 Bro. Satish Kumar started a television program and called it Calvary Swaram (The Voice of Calvary). This was a door that God opened to preach the gospel to millions of people. Initially Calvary Swaram tv program was being telecasted in a channel called Miracle-net. During these small beginnings, he had to face a lot of financial hardships. He couldnât pay the broadcast fee of Rs. 20,000 and so had to discontinue the program for a brief period of time.
But God's grace was always there on his servant. One night when Bro.Satish kumar was praying and crying to God, God spoke to him and said âToday you are crying because you donât have money to pay for even for one program, but the day will come when you will come back to me and cry in my presence saying â Lord I am unable to do so many programs, its too hard for meâ. This promise and encouragement from God has kept his faith burning bright until this day. By God's grace today â Calvary Swaramâ tv program is broadcasted in all major channels and around 500 programs are telecasted every month.
