Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

People are seeking a better life--more rest, more joy, more love, more purpose, more comfort, more friendship, more confidence--but nothing seems to satisfy. People are seeking a better life in all the wrong places--self-indulgent and/or temporary stuff--none of which leads them closer to God. The ad-saturated world in which people live promises a better life through everything except God.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Time of Grace aims to help people SEEK God, to SEE God in all of his love, glory, and power, so they can discover a SATISFACTION that nothing in this temporary world can offer. Time of Grace connects people to God’s grace—his love, glory, and power—so they realize the temporary things of life don’t satisfy. What brings satisfaction is knowing that because Jesus lived, died, and rose for all of us, we have access to the eternal God—right now and forever.

Time of Grace has seven strategies for achieving the ministry's mission and vision: 1) Ministry impact—we are expanding the reach and impact of Time of Grace by increasing the number of people engaged with the ministry—connecting them to God's amazing grace; 2) Leadership—our board and leadership team continue to identify, engage, and develop high-caliber board and team members—all dedicated to the mission of spreading the gospel; 3) Marketing and public relations—we are developing and promoting brand identity, awareness, and understanding—in order to become a recognizable and reliable source of biblical content; 4) Engagement—we are engaging individuals, churches, and organizations as partners—to work together in spreading the message of God's grace; 5) Financial management—we are developing and promoting current and long-term fiscal stability through best practices and effective/efficient stewardship of resources—in order to use the gifts God's given us in the most efficient way; 6) Ministry funding—we are generating revenue necessary to support current and future ministry priorities—so we can maintain and expand our gospel outreach; and 7) Organizational culture—we are promoting a values-driven culture manifesting teamwork, accountability, transparency, personal and professional growth, and equity—all so that we can better serve God and others as we share the message of God's love in Christ through Time of Grace.

Time of Grace operates under a board of directors with diverse expertise and experience. A leadership team of a president/CEO, executive vice president of operations, and a chief development officer have the capacity for meeting the ministry's goals. On the Time of Grace team are multiple gifted speakers for television and online video; experts in the areas of video production and editing, both for our "Time of Grace" television program and our "Grace Talks" short-form, weekday video devotions. Time of Grace also has on staff a brand manager, a communication content manager, and a graphic designer to ensure that all content meets the highest standards for quality and timeliness. An operations team manages all of the day-to-day communications and maintains the national office. Time of Grace also utilizes the expertise of outside authors for books, devotions, and blogs. In the areas of communication, fundraising, media buying, media distribution, social media 24/7 monitoring, and a 24/7 call center, Time of Grace utilizes external partners to complement the in-house team.

Time of Grace Ministry measures its accomplishments primarily by tracking the number of engagements with the ministry's content each month ("Time of Grace" television program, "Grace Talks" weekday video devotions, "Grace Moments" daily print devotions, the Time of Grace app, books, blogs, etc.). In 2015 Time of Grace averaged less than 3,000,000 engagements each month. In 2016 the average was 3,300,000. In 2017, it was over 3,600,000 and by the end of 2018 Time of Grace averaged over 3,700,000 engagements each month.

The goal for 2019 is 4,000,000 engagements each month.
