For far too long we have allowed secular media outlets like CNN, MSNBC, Fox, and others to dominate our airwaves. The advancement of the internet and technology, means that CrossPolitic and the Fight Laugh Feast Network is not bound to the gatekeepers of mainstream media. But here is the catch, in order to compete with mainstream media, we need to crowdsource our efforts. What do I mean by that, we need you to join our army of club members, so that we will have the resources to not only compete with mainstream media, but to take it over because Jesus is King. So, we are building something that hopefully by the grace of God will become a big voice for Christians all over the world. In three years, with little resources, we have found placement in millions of households on Direct TV and Comcast, and we will reach about 3 million in podcast downloads in this year alone. Thanks for considering supporting our work, and of course above all we appreciate your prayers that we would stay faithful to the gospel, as we proclaim it in the public square. Join the Club, grow the movement, and pray for reformation and revival in our country.
