SCOAN celebrates 16 years of Emmanuel TV

The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) will on Tuesday, March 8 celebrate the 16th anniversary of Emmanuel TV.

This will be the first anniversary that the cable channel would be celebrating since 2006 without its founder Prophet TB Joshua who died on June 5, 2021.

In a post to Facebook on Sunday, March 6, the SCOAN called on the public to join in celebrating Emmanuel TV with a performance of ‘How Great Thou Art’ by a little known as Esther.

“On Tuesday, 8 March 2022, it will be exactly 16 years since Emmanuel TV was established. Over the course of those years, millions all over the world have been impacted by God’s Word as preached on the channel, which is one of the most-watched gospel stations in the world.

“With this wonderful operatic performance of ‘How Great Thou Art’ by Esther, let us join our voices in saying: ‘Happy birthday, Emmanuel TV!’” the post read.

About a month to his death in 2021, Joshua had this to say about Emmanuel TV on its 15th anniversary: “God’s purpose is our purpose and His mission is our mission – that is what we are born for, living for and going to die for. His purpose is to preach the Gospel to all mankind and His Gospel is quite simple.

“To our viewers, friends and partners all over the world – thank you for joining us on this incredible journey! Better is not good enough; the best is always yet to come!”

In April 2021, Emmanuel TV YouTube channel was suspended for allegedly propagating hate speech with a video titled ‘The spirit of man is tormenting you.’ The video was about Chetanna Nwabuwa, a Nigerian living in Ghana, who was allegedly possessed by a strange spirit.

The channel was later restored.
