St. Louis, MO - The food delighted the patrons and the atmosphere lit up Nathaniel’s Restaurant for the broadcast premiere launch of the gospel/Christian themed, Access Granted Network (AGN) featuring the flagship program, Kingdom Conversations.

AGN airs EVERY SUNDAY, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., on Charter Cable Channel CCIN 198 in the St. Louis market AND is available online at

A packed house enjoyed the soulful cuisine as they watched a big screen TV showing the video-taped talk-interview program, the same show that was debuting that evening on cable TV.
“I think this is something that we need,” said Theresa Williams, as she paused eating at Nathaniel’s, 3182 Morganford Avenue, just off Arsenal Street in south St. Louis city. “We don’t have enough black stations giving their opinions and sharing information. And the station is about the Lord, too! I’m always ready for that.”
Added Denesia Williams: “AGN is a wonderful network and it is a blessing that they’re able to spread the Word of God through this television services. I hope it expands.”

The St. Louis- and Atlanta-based broadcast media group, Access Granted Network, is about inspirational gospel/urban music and programming. The vision is to develop and grow the entertainment media corporation, whose sole purpose is to focus on skillfully assisting the best in music and engaging people in social conversation through original programming, new music, videos, interviews, exclusive performances and more.
In addition to Charter, AGN programming is available across all digital platforms, social media and online at
Kingdom Conversations, for example, an original program that started as a radio show and is one of 18 programs coming to AGN, is a “positive platform to expose a new generation” of pastors, musicians, artists, producers, entrepreneurs, writers and others, said Bishop Robby Owens, co-host and one of the show’s executive producers.

“This show is a platform for some of the most influential people in the region,” he said.
Owens described Kingdom Conversations as a “clean and funny Christian program offering the best in Christian entertainment and a nationwide gospel centric lifestyle.” The launch program featured lively interviews and creatively produced, pre-recorded segments involving St. Louis area pastors, business owners, social activists, dancers and artists.
Show co-host, Pastor Renita Lamkin of St. John AME in St. Charles, who is civic minded, said Kingdom Conversations is entertaining because it allows the program’s four co-hosts of offer “different perspectives on the same issue."
“The personalities collide which makes the show a lot of fun,” Lamkin said. Comedian co-host Michelle Aaye, said AGN and Kingdom Conversations “is the start of something big.”
AGN is offering church preaching time slots, corporate and small business commercials, on-demand content downloads, business consulting and other marketing/media services, according to Eretha Johnson, director of business development for churches and spot commercials.
AGN video tapped “The Ferguson Report Card: Facing the Future” – a community forum on August 15 that assessed progress in Ferguson one year after violent protest ripped through the north St. Louis county municipality following fatal shooting death of Michael Brown Jr. by a Ferguson police officer.
