In 1979, Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas launched its first weekly broadcast of edited worship services on local television. The vision for this broadcast was to attract local residents to the church, minister to existing members, and spread the Gospel beyond the walls of the church.
Little did those early visionaries realize the seeds they were planting, and the worldwide outreach that would grow from that simple vision. In 1982, a local radio program emerged, as well as television broadcasting on a national network, which provided nationwide exposure.
Thanks to the gifts and prayers of thousands of supporters, The Winning Walk has grown into an international television, radio, and internet outreach. The broadcast ministry takes its name from one of Dr. Young’s first books, The Winning Walk: Outfitting for the Christian Adventure (currently out of print).
As Dr. Young points out, walking involves practically every muscle in the body. And no one is born with the ability to walk. It requires training, strength, balance, coordination, determination, and time. Walking with God is no different. Nobody instantly becomes an overcoming Christian. We must take those first timid steps clinging to the Father’s hand before we can walk worthy of our calling as a child of the King. And like all journeys, walking the winning walk requires the proper equipment and preparation.
Dr. Young’s passion is to outfit your life with the proven truth of God’s Word so you will be able to follow wherever the Master leads and experience the abundant life He intends you to have.
