• OUR MISSION

    Mission Statement of Public Praise TV

    Public Praise is a lifestyle magazine format show that unapologetically intertwines faith and culture.

    The mission of Public Praise is to showcase individuals with amazing gifts, talents, and stories who are not ashamed to use them for the Kingdom of God. We acknowledge that our God-given ability to create does not start at the pulpit and ends at the church’s door. We are called to be world changers…to be on the top of our rightful mountain of influence and proudly proclaim the greatness of Christ in us! In a world where broadcasting your faith is frowned upon… we broadcast to glorify the One that we are Proud to Proclaim and Never Ashamed.

    During her younger years as growing up as a pastor's daughter Jenn Thompson, began to experience issues with her self esteem, confidence, appearance, identity, friends, and family. As she went through many personal defeats she continued to look inward for answers of who she was. She discovered Jesus in 2000 and how exciting it was to build a personal relationship with Him in her own way.
    After years of watching many awesome and beautiful women on YouTube, in January of 2014, she started a YouTube channel, that would show girls that they can be radiantly beautiful, confident and passionate about Jesus all at the same time. She pursues this vision and strives to impact the lives of as many young girls and women that God allows.
