"A Resurrection Life" (26:00)-an Easter Special with Pastor Carter Conlon

In this Easter message, Carter Conlon, Pastor of Times Square Church, reminds every believer in Christ, that a Resurrection life is promised by Christ Himself.  Jesus said:  “I am the Resurrection and the life”. . .a life in which all things become new.

And in what may seem an unusual context, Carter Conlon uses as his text, the 23rd Psalm.  And in that synopsis of David’s life, we can see our life under n


ew leadership and new ownership.

Carter’s own testimony of accepting Christ just further amplifies this compelling message of a Resurrected life!



For National Day of Prayer:

"Prayer That Can Move Mountains" (25:00) with Pastor Carter Conlon

Helping to mark this year's National Day of Prayer event, Carter reminds us that an effective prayer life isn't simply the "lay-me-down-to-sleep" kind-- we need to practice the power of prayer that literally transforms lives.

Pastor Conlon speaks from experience. At age 24, suffering panic attacks that left him cowering in his room, he accepted Christ. And he believed God's Word. Taking his Bible and opening it to the only verses he knew, he prayed and trusted God to take away his fear. God not only did that but He instilled a lifelong passion for prayer that is the hallmark of Times Square Church and Pastor Conlon's ministry.



For Mother's Day:

"Prayer That Moves Heaven" (26:00) with Anne Graham Lotz

What if, this Mother's Day, every mother in America made a commitment to pray daily for her children?  And what if every woman in America prayed in such a way that Heaven is moved and our nation is changed?

In this 2016 Mother's Day special, Anne Graham Lotz is joined by her youngest daughter, Rachel-Ruth Wright as they together share the impact of God's Word and prayer in the recent loss of Anne's husband, Danny Lotz.

Both mom and daughter reflect on the enormous influence in prayer on their lives by Anne's mother, Ruth Bell Graham, as well.  Anne concludes by encouraging women to pray in such a way--as Daniel did--that Heaven is moved and our nation is changed!

For the 2016 Olympic Games (August 5-21):

olym"The Bible: Impacting the 2016 Olympic Games" (25:00)

Every weekday "The Book" (from Museum of the Bible) focuses on the Bible's influence and impact over the centuries. And now anticipating the Summer Olympic Games again capturing national attention, we've created a powerful half-hour special underscoring the influence of the Bible on the traditions of the Olympic Games as well as on the lives of its athletes. This creative special will remind and inspire listeners of the Bible's impact in every sphere -- including sports!


For Patriot's Day (9/11):

Carter-Conlon"Beyond 9/11: The Impact of Prayer"
(28:00) with Carter Conlon

From the heart of Manhattan, hear the deeply moving story of the work of Times Square Church at a moment that remains one of the most significant in U.S. history.  And be encouraged to hear how God uniquely prepared this body of believers to minister in a time of crisis. 

Scriptural truths from Pastor Carter Conlon are woven throughout the special as a reminder that prayer is the key to being ready to respond—whether that’s at a time of national disaster, or whether that’s in giving an answer for faith in the workplace. 

It’s a powerful and deeply moving remembrance of 9/11 … with the strongest of biblical foundations as the platform for impacting our culture then … and now. 



For Christmas:

One Perfect Life"One Perfect Life: Christmas Edition"
(2 specials/25:00 each or combined for one 50:00 special)

One Perfect Life by John MacArthur is the setting for the story of Jesus Christ in the very words of Scripture, blending all four Gospels in a harmonized life of Christ in two Christmas specials. Both fully dramatized narratives depict the persons characterized in the Gospel account.  Each special is unique to itself and proclaims the Gospel message clearly through the birth and life of Christ.

Narrated and dramatized from the very words of Scripture and with descriptive commentary by John MacArthur we present:

"A Son is Given " (25:00). . heralding the birth of John the Baptist and the astounding announcement from the angel Gabriel to Mary of the coming birth of Christ.  It presents a picture of the precious time between Mary and Elizabeth, Mary's Magnificat and Zacharias' benediction, the worship and praise of the shepherds who journey to Bethlehem to proclaim the given Son. It is Christ coming to earth!

"Immanuel, God With Us" (25:00). . .transports us to Bethlehem just after the birth of Christ to those days of Herod's decree that all children two years of age are to be killed, of Jesus as a young boy teaching in the temple, of His baptism by John the Baptist signaling the beginning of His earthly ministryculminating in His last hours on the Cross, His death, burial and resurrection as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

"From the Manger to the Cross" (50:00). . .combines the two Christmas specials into one seamless dramatization of Christ's coming to earth to His resurrection.


xmas special"No Room in the Inn"
(26:00) with Carter Conlon

The special opens in ancient Bethlehem in a dramatic reading of the Scripture in Luke 2:1-14—proclaiming the challenge of the Bethlehem story—when an innkeeper decided there was “no room in the inn.”

There was a knock at the door, a plea for a place to birth a child.  But someone would have to give up a bed, a place at the table, the cries of a newborn might disturb the sleep and suddenly it just became easier to say, “We’re sorry, there’s no room.”

You’ll hear a stirring testimony of a young woman who knocked on a door and there was room in the inn!  And her life was forever changed.

Carter’s message is to alert the people of God of that knock on the door—that phone call, someone who needs food, a lonely person with no family.  This  Christmas there will be a knock at our door!  The question is:  Do we open the door?  Do we make room in the inn?


Christmas Carol"A Christmas Carol"
(3-part special for 2-hour block/1 hr. 39 min.)

Charles Dickens was just 12 years old when he saw first-hand the devastating effects of child labor.  He never forgot those images.  In 1843 he wrote a pamphlet titled:  "An Appeal to the People of England, on Behalf of the Poor Man's Child"  It became the story of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."

How appropriate that Focus on the Family would bring to life this most famous story of the mean-spirited, miserly Scrooge who in one momentous night is confronted by his own lack of compassion-and given the opportunity to change not only his life, but the lives of a family!

The world has told the story many timesbut none more to the point than in this Focus on the Family Radio Theater presentation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."  Make this the first year of many to bring to your family, your children and grandchildren a message that defines the spirit of the season of Christ's birth, of His loving compassion.

For New Year's Eve / New Year's Day:


ny special "Waiting for the Ball to Drop"
(26:00) with Carter Conlon

Where will you be this New Year’s Eve?  As the famous New Year’s Eve ball descends from the flagpole at One Times Square, over a million people will be in Times Square, with over a billion watching from around the world, waiting for the ball to drop—to say farewell to 2015 and celebrate hope for the year ahead.

And in the midst of all the revelers is Times Square Church—as Carter Conlon brings a message for the New Year—just a few thousand feet from where everyone will gather to look up at the ball on top of the tower—waiting for it to come down—hoping for a better day.

It’s from this unique vantage point that Carter brings a challenging message—a message to millions whose back is to the very altar of God—millions facing the altar of a secular society—waiting for the ball to drop—waiting and hoping!

Carter’s message is the message of this hour—from the Scripture in 1 Kings when the people of Bael (ironically pronounced Ball) are looking to the top of the mountain worshiping a false God when all they have to do is turn around and see the altar of God.  His message and the testimony of a Broadway actor and a former modern-day Mafia member are words of truth you won’t soon forget!
