Ministry Description
Speaking fluently in more than 230 languages and dialects, TWR (also known as Trans World Radio) exists to reach the world for Jesus Christ. Our global media outreach engages millions in more than 160 countries with biblical truth. For nearly 60 years, God has enabled TWR to help lead people from doubt to decision to discipleship. Together with international partners, local churches and other ministries, TWR provides relevant programming, discipleship resources and dedicated workers to spread hope to individuals and communities around the globe. Whether using high-powered AM/MW, shortwave or FM radio, streaming content to Internet users or visiting face-to-face with listeners, TWR leaves a lasting spiritual footprint.

House churches are forming all across Cuba because Cubans are hungry for the Word of God. Years of atheism have challenged both Christians and seekers to earnestly find the truth, and they depend on the Spanish programs of TWR for solid biblical teaching. Our listeners have been calling for a clearer, stronger signal for years, and TWR has launched the Bonaire Transmitter Power Upgrade, a multiyear project, to answer that call.
For years, one of the biggest obstacles to sharing the gospel with more people across Asia hasn’t been politics or distance or lack of opportunity. It’s been the price of electricity. For $190,000, we can bring our existing solar array up to a full 100 kilowatts. That will be enough to power the Guam station’s daytime operations and sell excess electricity back to the power company for credit that will offset the cost of nighttime broadcasting. A savings of $47,000 or more a year!
The country of Nigeria has the largest population of any country in Africa and has become a haven for those who want to persecute Christians in West Africa. TWR is mobilizing to increase the number of transmitter hours available for broadcasting to Nigeria in three key languages of the country: Hausa, Fulani, and Kanuri.
