My name is Delendra TarsaVena Peterson. I am the CEO of the streaming TV Network, The OnPoint Network. Since my childhood in Selma, Alabama, I have always seen myself doing music, movies, plays, etc. I even started writing songs and plays at the age of 8 years old that were performed in high school. I still have some of my notebooks. I can remember using my dad's double deck tape player to record a song. Then, I would play it back and record the harmony. I would complete this 3 or 4 times to stack the harmony to my song. Lol. I was an engineer then and didn't even know it.
As I grew up, my parents steered me into teaching. Even though I was good at it and loved my students, I wasn't happy because this was not my dream and part of my purpose. After teaching for 14 years, I left on faith. My father was upset; but somehow, he found the love to support me. By the way, I am what most would call "daddy's little girl." His support was and is important to me.
Long story short, after 2 failed marriages, lots of heartache, I stepped into what God had ordained for me to do since I was the little girl riding with my father, Rev. J. J. Peterson, Sr., to church after church. I was ordain to minister. Shortly after, The OnPoint Network was birthed. We house many independent directors, producer, music artists', etc. content. We are available on several platforms, including Roku, Raydiant, Vimeo, YouTube, etc. A little over a year ago, I stepped out on faith into a filming studio in Linden, Alabama.
If you ever been to Linden, Alabama, you already know it is a small town. Not many people see a big vision or have big dreams. Yet, I know God showed me years ago of several complexes in the city of Linden, Alabama that will house several business owners. In this dream, I was pushing people into their purposes and their longings where they prospered, provided for their families and encouraged others.
I am not going to say this is easy for a single women. Yet, I have two amazing children who are super supportive. My son and I even started a carryout kitchen called Mmm, The Kitchen, which is inside of the now, OP Studios. My dreams and goals are to continue to develop the studio into a equipped vocal and visual recording studio and to building a large event center. We currently have one original 2-time award winning documentary, Blowin' Up: The Chasity D. Barnes Story,
one original movie, Just Love Me,
and several original TV shows and reality shows. We wish to work on more original content. Is this a task? Yes!!! In the mist of doing all of this, we will be providing jobs and giving life to what most people think is a retirement area. I believe there is life in the BLACKBELT area of Alabama. I believe their is history to be heard and made.
After watching Transformation Church, I knew I started with crazy faith and now I must continue with my crazier faith as I manifest this crazy faith into the lives of others in my area. I see this happening as people are writing plays and movies, people are seeing ideas that can form into reality, etc. Therefore, I am asking you to join me by helping my company raise the funds we need to grow, hire and expand. We need a team of people with amazing faith, but we want to be able to pay our team, actors, directors, producers, etc. This would not just mean the world to me, a woman who has used all her own funds to birth this dream, but this would also mean the world to people who see that I stepped out on faith so they can too.
