9-10-14 Breath of Life Television Ministry Celebrates 40 Years

The year, 2014, is a special one for Breath of Life Television Ministries as 40 years ago this North American Division Media Ministry was born!  In 1974, the Lord laid it on the heart of Elder Walter Arties to launch this powerful ministry, and after 40 years of public evangelistic campaigns and weekly television broadcasts, Breath of Life has birthed 13 churches and baptized over 20,000 individuals!
Throughout its 40 year history, Breath of Life has been led by three dynamic Speaker/Directors who have boldly proclaimed the Three Angels Messages of Revelation 14, Elder C.D. Brooks (1974 – 1998), Elder Walter L. Pearson (1998 - 2010), and Dr. Carlton P. Byrd (2010 – present).
To commemorate the 40 Year Anniversary of Breath of Life, Elders Arties, Brooks, Pearson, and Dr. Byrd will all be present in Huntsville, AL at the Oakwood University Church the weekend of November 7-8, 2014 to celebrate God’s blessings on this ministry. 
In addition to the collective preaching ministry of Elder Brooks, Elder Pearson, and Dr. Byrd, attendees will also be blessed with the music ministry of Elder Arties, Elder Shelton Kilby, the original and current Breath of Life Quartets, the Oakwood University Aeolians, Dynamic Praise, Voices of Triumph, the Pine Forge Academy Choir, Greater Atlanta Adventist Academy Choir, the Oakwood Adventist Academy Choir, and much more!
Anniversary worship services will be held Friday evening, November 7, at 7:00 pm, along with Sabbath School at 9:15 am, Divine Worship at 11:00 am, and a Musical Concert/Vespers at 6:00 pm on Sabbath, November 8.  All are invited to attend this special weekend of reflection, renewal, and revival.
Presently, Breath of Life is aired on multiple television networks including the Hope Channel, Three Angels Broadcasting Network, the Word Network, and other local television stations in select United States’ markets.  For a complete listing of the Breath of Life television schedule, coupled with additional information on the Breath of Life 40th Anniversary Weekend, please call 256.837.1255, or visit www.breathoflife.tv.
