New talk show comes to Abbotsford

Joy for the Journey will be aired on Joy TV this fall

Abbotsford residents Bob and Alice Maryniuk will be hosting a new television program called Joy for the Journey this fall on Joy TV.

Above and Beyond Ministries is launching a television program to encourage people to share their stories and encourage one another to succeed.

Joy for the Journey will be aired weekly on Joy TV beginning this fall. Hosts Bob and Alice Maryniuk are Abbotsford residents who are committed to providing biblically-based training and prayer to empower others to develop healthy relationships. They have been in Christian ministries in Abbotsford for more than 30 years.

“All too often people are isolated in their problems,” said Alice. “At times, I thought I was the only one with problems until I began to discover that others had similar difficulties, and if they can overcome them, then I can too. That is why we want to provide people an opportunity to share their stories.”

About $7,000 a month is needed to film the episodes. A television celebration launch and gala is being held on Saturday, May 30 to raise the finances needed for the venture.

Come meet the team, learn more about the program, and speak with guests for the show. The gala will be held at HillCity Church, 3970 Gladwin Rd. (corner of Downes) at 7 p.m. Visit or email to register for the event.
