100 HUNTLEY STREET MARKS 40 YEARS OF DAILY CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING ON JUNE 15 WITH CELEBRATORY SHOW

Burlington, Ont. — (CANADIAN CHRISTIAN NEWS SERVICE) — Crossroads celebrates God’s faithfulness and blessing over Canada’s longest running daily talk show 100 Huntley Street, now entering its 40th year of television ministry on June 15th, 2017.

“Jesus is the reason we’re doing what we were doing. It’s not a denomination or a doctrine, it’s a person – it’s Jesus.” – David Mainse, Founder of Crossroads/100 Huntley Street

“100 Huntley Street premiered on Global TV all those years ago and over time it has remained true to its roots, bringing audiences inspirational and life changing stories from people all around the world. We couldn’t imagine Global’s lineup without what is Canada’s longest running day-time talk show.” – Barbara Williams, Global TV/Corus Entertainment EVP & COO

Seldom does a television program span four decades of production, let alone provide world-class production value through the generosity of its supporters. Crossroads marks this milestone with deep gratitude for its partners in ministry, who continually offer their support enabling 100 Huntley Street to tell the amazing stories of people – whether they be world leaders, celebrities, sports figures or everyday people – who have had life-changing encounter with God.

“For 40 years, 100 Huntley Street has been weaved into the fabric of faith in Canada. We are privileged to share God’s hope, through life-changing stories and Bible teaching, with millions of people who are on their spiritual journey,” said Crossroads CEO Lorna Dueck.

As part of the 40th Anniversary show, Lorna Dueck will speak with past and present on-air hosts and contributors, including Crossroads’ Founders David and Norma-Jean Mainse. Joining them are hosts Cheryl Weber, Greg Musselman, Maggie John and guest appearances from Ron and Ann Mainse, Moira Brown, Jim Cantelon, Norm MacLaren, and Cal Bombay.
