Hope Channel, Inc.’s Board of Directors this week appointed producer Gabriel Begle as its new Vice President for Programming, Production and Broadcast.
Begle will provide leadership in the development, production, acquisition, and broadcast of Hope Channel’s television programs, a release stated.
Hope Channel is the official television network of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Begle will become one of four vice presidents.
In delivering the announcement, board chair Pardon Mwansa expressed his confidence that “Gabriel will continue Hope Channel’s tradition of developing quality television programs that appeal to viewers, even a secular audience as they take their first steps toward God.”
Begle, 36, is originally from Argentina, and his educational pursuits include ministry, healthcare, and broadcast media. For the past three years Begle has produced one of Hope Channel’s flagship programs “Go Healthy for Good,” as well as the upcoming “Compassion” series, which highlights stories of how Adventists are changing their communities. He has worked most of his career as a director of television production for ministries in North and South America and has pastored several churches.
“We welcome Gabriel to his new responsibilities,” said Brad Thorp, Hope Channel president. “With this level of skill and experience and having worked with media ministries around the world, Gabriel is just the right person to continue leading Hope Channel in its quest to become the premiere Christian television network.”
Begle described his vision for Hope Channel’s future as one of telling stories to help people find a connection with God. “Modern TV is all about stories, and we’ll work diligently to make Hope Channel the best storyteller in Christian media,” he said. “It’s about making a connection with a world of people who are looking to God for a better life.”
