Tim Bisagno is the founder of MXTV.
He grew up in Houston TX, the son of a prominent pastor.
Tim took the traditional path of acquiring a classic ministry-education by graduating from Baylor University, and attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, but his heart was not in it.
Calling and mission.
Still feeling a call to ministry, he used drugs and alcohol to unsuccessfully quieten his calling. Humbled, Tim discovered his desperate need for God. As a result, Tim not only grew in knowing Jesus, but also grew a deep desire to make Him known.
Then, Tim studied sanctification at the L’Abri Fellowship in Switzerland for one year. Returning to Texas, he completed a Discipleship Training School and a School of Evangelism through Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Following his call, he then served with YWAM in Amsterdam, Holland for three years.
“Speaking their language”
Tim longed to see a ministry that would reach young people and could effectively speak their “cultural language.” So in 1992 while in Amsterdam, he founded his evangelistic rock band “The Friendlys” – which later evolved into a TV show.
Tim was ordained into ministry in 1994. Continuing to reach the global youth culture, he founded “Mission X Mission Inc” – a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry. Within a few years M X T V (Mission X Television) was born.
M X T V is a weekly 30 minutes evangelistic TV program offering an eclectic menu of music videos, short films and relevant teaching.
In January of 2020, Tim founded “A Safe Place Online.” Through a 24/7 live chat and text service, aSafePlaceOnline is a nonjudgmental place for hurting young people to come, share, and hear about the saving grace of Jesus. aSafePlaceOnline.com
“Be The Man You Are Created To Be.”
Today’s young man knows in his gut something is wrong. Instinctually, his soul does not align with the emasculating lie spewed by the liberal media. StandUpDude utilizes social media to inform and equip young men with the truth. StandUpDude is a movement with two important objectives: for today’s young man to know his Creator, and be the man he is created to be. standupdude.com
“As creator of MXTV and aSafePlaceOnline and StandUpDude – It’s my desire to see these ministries be the best evangelistic communication tools on TV and Internet reaching unchurched young adults between the ages of 15-30.
With God’s help, M X T V and aSafePlaceOnline will make an unprecedented Kingdom-impact upon this Media Generation by effectively presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ in today’s language, resulting in their salvation.” – Tim
