Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 10, 2013
Tampa, FL, January 10, 2013: KnockTV, LLC and Focus on the Family announced today a national partnership agreement to jointly promote and support KnockTV’s new groundbreaking Christian reality TV series SURRENDER THE SECRET, about women and abortion.
As one of the country’s most well-known Christian family-help organizations, the addition of Focus on the Family to KnockTV’s National Partner Program is a significant boost for the emerging network and its first TV series to be released later this month. By joining the Partner Program, Focus on the Family will actively support and promote the TV series on its websites, social media platforms and newsletters to its followers, supporters and pastors.
Focus on the Family has a significant commitment to upholding and promoting a comprehensive view of the Sanctity of Human Life. Its popular website, http://www.BeaVOICE.net, is a home for many of Focus’ pro-life efforts, including the Option Ultrasound Program which has helped save more than 146,000 preborn babies since 2004. Also popular is Focus’ I Am Pro-Life Facebook page, which has more than 500,000 “likes” and an active community.
Focus will regularly highlight SURRENDER THE SECRET through these methods during the months of January, February and March while new episodes of the first season are being released. Focus on the Family also has a popular website for pastors called Thriving Pastor (http://www.thrivingpastor.org) which the organization will use to educate pastors around the country about the TV series and its ability to help their efforts in discussing the Sanctity of Human Life.
KnockTV’s branded Partner Program is developed for organizations who wish to engage in the growing grassroots effort to spread the word about the new and innovative TV series. Focus joins Heartbeat International, the National Helpline for Abortion Recovery, Abortion Recovery InterNational (ARIN), TruthMedia (division of Power to Change), The Justice Foundation, and Operation Outcry as Partners in helping to reach millions of individuals around the country who can benefit from the message of hope and healing for those who have experienced the pain of a past abortion.
SURRENDER THE SECRET is a 10-episode, Christian reality TV series following five women who tell their stories about having abortions in their past, and take a healing journey together. Their journey is through a bible study written specifically for post-abortion healing called Surrendering the Secret (by Pat Layton, LifeWay Press, 2008). As they share their experiences, the women form a tight bond, learn about God’s love and forgiveness and find redemption from the bondage of their past decisions. Information and a preview of the show can be found at http://www.KnockTV.com/SurrenderTheSecret.
“Focus on the Family believes in the sanctity and dignity of each human life, including preborn babies and women who may have chosen abortion in the past. We want these women to know there is hope in Jesus Christ,” said Kelly Rosati, vice president of Community Outreach. “By allowing us to walk with women who are coming to terms with their abortions, KnockTV’s SURRENDER THE SECRET is a powerful way to share the good news of redemption and healing.”
Geoffrey Rogers, President & CEO of KnockTV, adds, “Having Focus on the Family join the National Partners Program is such a tremendous benefit to KnockTV. Their reach and influence across the U.S. is significant, and will help reach so many more individuals that are suffering in silence as a result of their past abortions. We cannot thank Jim Daly and Focus on the Family enough for their willingness to stand with us and promote the show.”
