Breath of Life Ministries seeks to help individuals discover the truth of God’s life-enabling concern for their well-being. The mission of Breath of Life Ministries is to present the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ to all people groups from a contemporary, urban perspective. Breath of Life Ministries is dedicated to sharing the healing Gospel of Jesus Christ in the context of the Three Angels’ Messages of Revelation 14. This is done through the production and distribution of Christ centered quality television and media programs, along with support materials that are intellectually stimulating, Bible-based, and designed to help people choose a quality of life found only in following Christ.

Pastor Snell is happily married to the former Gianna Norman of Nashville, TN, and together they are the grateful parents of three children. His favorite Bible text states “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

Breath of Life began broadcasting in 1974. It was the dream of pastor and recording artist Walter Arties to create a program that would appeal to African-Americans looking for hope and guidance. For 23 years, Pastor C. D. Brooks was the featured speaker. Since that time, others have served in the role of speaker/director with Debleaire Snell currently in that position. In 2024 Breath of Life celebrates 50 years of media ministry. For more information on Breath of Life Ministries, click here.
