Historical Information

The Ben Haden Evangelistic Association was founded in 1968 by Dr. Ben Haden. Executive officers were Dr. Ben Haden (Chairman) and Scott Probasco, Jr. (President/CEO). The Ben Haden Evangelistic Association’s headquarters is located in Chattanooga, TN. The "Changed Lives" radio and later TV program was the main emphasis of Ben Haden Evangelistic Association's ministry. The program aired weekly until 2001. Haden's program was based on a question asked at the beginning to which he would respond with "Let's talk about it" which became his signature phrase. In 2004, Haden brought the Changed Lives ministry to the web where listeners could have access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. His messages encouraged Christians to continue in the spiritual walk offering "quiet, intelligent conversation about Jesus." In 2004, the name changed officially to "Changed Lives.org" as Dr. Haden retired from radio in 2001 but chose to continue ministry over the internet. The television and radio spots were taken over by Dr. Michael Youssef's program "Leading the Way."
