Historical Background


Founded in 1968 by Dr. Ben Haden after having started a radio program ministry known as "Changed Lives". The program aired weekly and eventually earned television rights as well. In 2004, the name changed officially to "Changed" as Dr. Haden retired from radio in 2001 but chose to continue ministry over the internet. The television and radio spots were taken over by Dr. Michael Youssef's program "Leading the Way".

Ministry emphasis

The "Changed Lives" radio and TV program was the main emphasis of Ben Haden Evangelistic Association's ministry. The program aired weekly until 2001. Haden's program was based on a question asked at the beginning to which he would respond with "Let's talk about it" which became his signature phrase. In 2004, Haden brought the Changed Lives ministry to the web where listeners could have access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. His messages encouraged Christians to continue in the spiritual walk offering "quiet, intelligent conversation about Jesus".
