We rejoice as we pause and review the great things God has done since 1972. We want these memories to be testimonies of God’s provision as we move into the future with the assurance that there is no problem or challenge that cannot be overcome through the awesome power manifested through our Risen Lord.



Evangelism Through Television & Radio

Here’s Help Network

The Here’s Help Network has been an important part of NLEC’s ministry for over 25 years. The Here’s Help Network is dedicated to the service of faith-based, wholesome and educational radio and television for the public and, through these media, advocacy for the poor and homeless in Mid-America.

Since its founding in 1972, NLEC has never wavered in its passion to give direct care to those in need. New Life’s founding of the Here’s Help Network in 1982 was, in fact, just one more bold extension of this deeply rooted drive. When New Life celebrated the on-air launch of NLEC TV Channel 24.2 (formerly KNLC Channel 24), in September of 1982, one of the first major series developed by Larry Rice was the HERE’S HELP series. This series, along with so many others since, built upon NLEC’s direct services to the poor and homeless by equipping communities and individuals with the awareness, information, and courage to know that they already have the power – through countless “how-to” approaches – to lighten others’ burdens – and their own.
