Behind The Scenes

Bible Teachers Broadcasting Network(BTBN) launched on October 16, 2012 as a dream that had finally come to life for Founder and CEO, Apostle Mary Banks. One day, while strolling across her balcony, Apostle Banks heard the Lord Jesus whisper, “truth is sufficient”; then, some time afterwards, He said to her: “I have given you the airways; I am going to exalt truth, and my sheep will hear my voice, and another they will not follow.” Thus, BTBN was founded, with its headquarters in Kingston, Jamaica.

Since then, the network has evolved into the technological hub of Mary Banks Ministries, and as a place for substantial Christian teaching and discipleship.  Thriving on the donations of its partners, BTBN operates by the principle taught by Jesus – “freely you have received, freely give”.
