Ben Haden Evangelical Association, Inc was formed in 1967 not long after Ben Haden arrived at First Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga, TN. Mr. Haden launched his own radio ministry, "Changed Lives," on radio station WFLI in Chattanooga. Mr. Haden, a former Kingsport, Tenn. newspaperman who had made a midlife acceptance of Christ as his personal savior, had been serving as pastor as Key Biscayne Presbyterian Church near Miami, Fla. He was already familiar to many First Presbyterian Church members for his Philadelphia-based radio program, "Bible Study Hour." Mr. Haden had grown physically weary of flying to Philadelphia twice a month for the "Bible Study Hour" programs and felt his radio ministry could best be served in Chattanooga.

The ministry -- which Mr. Haden has operated independently of the church -- eventually, grew to include a television ministry as well.

Today, Ben is now using the INTERNET for his messages after having named Dr. Michael Youssef his permanent successor for Changed Lives' TV and radio contracts.

Program accomplishments

2003 is Ben Haden's 35th year as a national broadcaster.
