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.
Interest in the gospel is growing among some Jews in Israel, and the number of Messianic Jews has risen over the years. To encourage these seekers and believers, TWR’s Hebrew programs are aired from a 1-million-watt AM transmitter that puts a powerful signal into the country. Called Voice of Salvation, this ministry partnership with Netivyah Bible Instruction in Jerusalem and includes seven distinct programs.
While Women of Hope is on the air in more than 65 languages, it is only recently that God has opened the door for the program to be produced in the Arabic language. Arab women live across the 22 countries of the Arabic world, spanning Africa and the Middle East. Project Hannah's Women of Hope seeks to meet Arab women’s spiritual needs with encouragement, practical advice, and counseling to mend their breaking hearts.
House churches are forming all over China, and since 1994, TWR has distributed more than 117,350 Radio Church Kits to help them get started. Each kit includes a Bible, study materials, and a radio with instructions on how to listen to TWR’s programs. The Radio Church Kits in combination with TWR programs teach the basics of salvation, examine the problems of daily life, and direct each individual to the Bible as the source of victory in every circumstance and relationship
