Core Values:

A thoughtful ethos makes SAT-7 a unique television ministry in the region: Over 80% of SAT-7 programs are created and produced by an interdenominational group of Middle Eastern and North African Christians. SAT-7 programs are apolitical, culturally sensitive, and nonviolent. SAT-7 does not attack other religions, so viewers from all religious backgrounds can engage in true and trustworthy presentations of the Gospel. All broadcasts are free to air for viewers. SAT-7 receives its support from friends of the ministry.

SAT-7 is the first, pioneering Christian satellite broadcaster ministering in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). It is the largest, most comprehensive, and most far-reaching. In 2016, SAT-7 celebrates 20 years of high quality, high impact Christian satellite broadcasting throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Recognized as a trusted brand with a consistent track record, SAT-7 is giving voice to the MENA Church and the Gospel message to tens of millions.

Based in Cyprus, SAT-7 is a Middle East based Christian indigenous satellite television ministry broadcasting 24/7 throughout more than seventy countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe. The network supports 5 channels with broadcasts in the major languages of the region: Arabic, Farsi, Dari, Turkish, Azeri, Kabyle and Kurdish. The ministry’s mission is to build the Church through non-political and non-partisan, biblically based programming, more than 80% of which is produced in the Middle East by Middle Easterners.
