The vision of
"Voice of Faith Network" was launched by James "Jim"
Layton in April 1981 with a televison program "Adventure in Faith".
In April 1984 VOFN
opened a television production studio in Apex, NC. This studio served
the Apex, Cary area until 2002 as Victory Televison Network (VTN).
Originally VTN produced
a few hours of television programs for the local cable company in
the evenings hosted by local pastors and ministries. November 1984
VTN was asked to begin broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,
which it did until 2002. VTN produced and broadcast as many as 50
programs per week during this time. VTN developed affiliate relationships
with 8 of the national Christian television networks broadcasting
over 18 hours per day of key programs from these networks as part
of our ministry.
In 1989 VTN built and
operated WACN-TV (low-power tv station) serving Apex, Cary, Fuquay-Varina,
Holly Springs and Morrisville. Later VTN would build and operated
3 additional low-power televison stations in Durham, Raleigh and Wilson.

and was classified by the Internal Revenue Service a 501(c)(3) public

assets of Victory Television Network in 1997.
LC sold the last of
the television stations in June of 2002 and opened Lighthouse Convention
Center. The name of the non-profit corporation was changed to Lighthouse
Christian Foundation (LCF) in 2003. LCF operated affiliate services
under Lighthouse Communications, Lighthouse Convention Center and
Lighthouse Gospel Music Association.

reflect the diverse ministry of the foundation. LCF operated as Lighthouse
Convention Center, Lighthouse Communications (LC), Voice of Faith
Network & Lighthouse Gospel Music Association (LGMA). LGMA was
formed in 2003 to promote local gospel singers.
VOFN incorporated the
name "Voice of Faith Network" as a religious non-profit
organization on August 22, 2012.
