Jesus Talk Live began as a radio call-in talk show in March 1999, and Charlotte Bise is the founder, President, and host. After a bout with throat cancer, Charlotte felt led by the Holy Spirit to share her stories of the “Sufficient Grace” of the Lord Jesus Christ she had experienced through out her life and invited others to call and share their stories.
The first program was a 1-hour program aired on the Dollywood Radio Station in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and later advanced to Morristown, Tennessee. During the first year, the program became so popular that it advanced to a two-hour program during prime time.
In 2001 God promoted the program to television. The first television program aired on “Living Faith Television” based in Abington, Virginia with founder Buford Smith. During the first years on television, the cameras were placed in the radio station and Jesus Talk Live was aired both on radio and television simultaneously.
In 2003 God promoted the program again to Nation Wide television, “Gospel Music Television” with studios in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It also became available to Internet worldwide.
Charlotte says of herself, “I am just a Witness.” Compelled by the Scripture in Mark 5:19 “Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.”
The theme song for Jesus Talk Live, written and sang by Charlotte Bise, relates to this same message and sums up the body of the program: “I Like to Talk About Jesus With My Friends.” In Charlotte’s words, “Jesus told me to go and give them HOPE. JESUS is our only hope!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3
