French Polynesia opens media centre


Papeete, Tahiti 

The French Polynesia Mission has established a media centre to help fulfil its mission. 

Called the Centre Média Adventiste, it brings together The Voice of Hope (LDVL) Adventist radio outreach and HOPE Polynésie film ministry. 

According to a survey conducted in May, more than 2500 people in Papeete township are listening to Adventist radio every day. One of the programs is the Sabbath School lesson study and there are plans to schedule more live broadcasts on the subject of discipleship. 

The local ABC will become a Centre of Influence.

HOPE Polynésie has produced a 10-video series about discipleship titled “Activate your faith”, which will be posted on the Mission website. A plan is in place to broadcast the program on public television channel TNTV once a month. 

HOPE Polynésie has produced other video clips and programs (see YouTube: Centre Média Adventiste).

The Mission has also transformed a third of the Adventist Book Centre into a Centre of Influence (COI) where people can enjoy vegetarian food. The Mission hopes to use the centre to establish good relationships in the community and help share the gospel of Jesus.
