PTL (an acronym for Praise The Lord) News is a complete 100% Christian Newspaper published in Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria.
The idea came through a spiritual inspiration in 1993 and became a reality in 1994.
It hit the news stands in September 1994 for the purpose of gathering and covering news, programmes and events by Churches, Christian Ministries and Ministers of God across denominations for proclaiming the works of God in the hands of His chosen and anointed ministers, male and female, young and old from all parts of the world with Nigeria as a base.
Since 1994, PTL News has been able to cover major Christian events in Nigeria, for big and small Churches, known and relatively unknown ministers of God, high God exalting events among which are conventions and historic landmarks in the Church in Nigeria.
These included the Conventions of Churches like The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Shiloh Convention of The Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel, Crusades of Global Impact organised by Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke (now late), Dr. K. A. Paul, Evangelist Benny Hinn and a horde of international preachers.
We have also covered programmes involving Orthodox and Protestant Churches like the Catholic, Methodist, Anglican and African Churches in Nigeria.
PTL News has also covered various land mark events by local Churches in Nigeria such as the Centenary celebrations of the Christ Apostolic Church, The Apostolic Church in Nigeria and various programmes by indigenous Churches like the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, the Celestial Church of Christ and others.
PTL News has also played its media roles in other interdenominational programmes organised by various Nigerian Christian organisations and associations like the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Organisation of African Instituted Churches, United Gospel Christian Association of Nigeria, Chaplains Fellowship of Nigeria, Centre For Righteous Living (CRIL), Virgin Prayer Fellowship, Gospel Musicians Association of Nigeria (GOMAN), and several others.
Over the years, we have carried out coverage of stories and do special reports on Churches as well as conduct interviews with prominent men and women of God in Nigeria across various Church denominations with the likes of Archbishop Benson Idahosa, Apostle Timothy Obadare, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, Pastor Elijah Abina, and various past and present leaders of the Christ Apostolic Church.
We want to state that we are always on the ground to work to improve in quality as well as coverage of more Christian events and personalities in Nigeria and overseas.
PTL News has also participated in several programmes organised by Christian media organisations like Media Associates International, World Association of Christian Communication (WACC), Journalists For Christ, Network of African Journalist (NACJOURN), Christian Press Association of Nigeria etc within and outside Nigeria.
