(MinistryWatch) Below is a list of the largest media ministries in the country.
These days, almost all ministries have some media component, Pastors write books. Journalists have podcasts. However, the list below is a list of those ministries whose work is primarily media driven. They include media organizations — such as television and radio networks — as well as “teaching and preaching ministries” whose presence is primarily on radio and television.
For those of you who are fluent in the MinistryWatch 1000 database, this list includes the “Educational Media” and the “Radio/TV Stations” categories.
It is important to note that this list does NOT include a number of for-profit organizations, including the Salem Radio Network and the Bott Radio Network. If Salem was on this list, it would be the number two ministry on the list, just behind the Christian Broadcasting Network. Bott Radio Network is a privately held, for-profit corporation and does not disclose revenue, but it likely has revenue in excess of $100 million, which would put it in the top five on this list.
