JCTV is a Christian youth network designed for the 13-30 age group. What makes JCTV different is that while most television networks are profit driven, meaning that they need to get something out of their viewers regardless of the social or emotional impact on their lives, JCTV wants to put back into the lives of our viewers by giving them programming that is not only entertaining but also builds up the viewer both individually and together as a community.
JCTV does this through multiple types of programming; Christ centered music videos with positive messages, relevant issue driven talk shows that equip viewers with solutions to everyday challenges. Action sports programming that highlight athletes making a difference in their communities, plus live events, concerts and much, much more.
JCTV's hope is to be a "light" by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ all over the world through programming on our Network which is more than just entertainment. The good news of Jesus, is that God loves you and that He has a plan for your life: plans for good not bad, to give you a hope and a future! This is something that we at JCTV are grateful to have experienced first hand through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and through the encouragement of the community of Christians who mercifully, although not always perfectly, follow God’s plan for their lives.
Much of JCTV’s programming is music driven with solid blocks of straight music videos, top 10 music video count down shows, music video shows that feature interviews with many of today’s top artists - and special concert performances from some of today’s top concerts and festivals. However, we have a lot more than just music programming like:
Live events, festivals, specials, and award shows
Sketch and stand up comedy shows
Issue driven talk shows…and more!

JCTV Needs New Programming!!
1.) All programming must reflect the values of JCTV meaning it must be faith-based and must not promote anything that conflicts with Christian Values.
2.) All programming must relate to the age group (13-30) that we're trying to minister to. It must be the type of program that teens and young adults would watch on their own without being forced.
3.) The production quality must be professional.
4.) The overall quality of the program must be good or better than what we have airing on our network already. No public access or home movie-like quality programs please. We will not pull a good program to replace it with bad one.
Note: We DO NOT accept script or show ideas. We typically do not pay for programming but offer free air time to ministries who have the means to produce quality youth programming.
