The P.T.L. Club

Show Summary

Remember when Jim and Tammy used to come on our television everyday? The PTL Club, also called the Jim Bakker Show or the Jim and Tammy TV Ministry Hour was a program produced daily back in the 70's and 80's on the PTL Network (also called the Inspirational Network). The program, originally two hours then scaled back to an hour, would feature a variety of guests testifying. The show would also feature singing from Tammy. Here's a description of the program from the book Jim and Tammy Present the Ministries of the Heritage Village Church, "Reaching beyond the border of the Heritage Village Church, the Jim and Tammy TV Ministry Hour telecast penetrates into the homes and hearts of America with a heart-warming message of hope and unconditional love. The program...broadcasts the encouraging word to millions that, no matter what the circumstances might be in their lives, they can "make it" with God's help. Broadcast before a live congregation, the telecast features Christian music, dynamic testimonies, worship and faith-building messages. Guests include athletes, actors, authors, government leaders, evangelists, entertainers, businessmen and housewives...all testifying to the transforming power of God in their lives...This experienced and highly skilled group of producers, technicians, designers and writers prayerfully coordinate the elements of production in a format that is flexible yet always sensitive to the leading of God's Spirit. Essential to the program are the featured renditions of the PTL Orchestra and Singers, blended with the voices of the PTL Musical Family. The Jim Bakker program was nationally syndicated in 1975 and is now (remember this is a dated source which is being quoted) telecast with its new title, the Jim and Tammy TV Ministry Hour."
