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.

One of the major costs associated with operating TWR's Guam station is the replacement of antennas and screens. Each antenna array is like a spider web of wires that hangs between two towers, and the screen hangs alongside it to reflect the signal in the intended direction. A screen lasts 15 to 20 years, and the screen on antenna array three was found in 2016 to be in poor condition due to wear and corrosion. TWR is seeking God’s provision to replace this antenna screen at a cost of $65,000.
The crisis in the Middle East has been going on for so long, and we have been deluged with so many stories, many of us are feeling worn out by it. But the opportunity to make an eternal difference has never been so great. The people of the Arab world are seeking answers. Will you make a generous gift toward the $120,000 TWR needs to continue broadcasting the gospel and biblical teaching in Arabic across the Middle East?
After two years of prayer, back-breaking work and sacrificial donations, we’ve reached the final phase of the Bonaire transmitter upgrade! We’re upgrading the transmitter from 100,000 watts to 450,000 watts. Once this $3.8 million project is complete, our potential listening audience in Latin America will double, from 50 million to 100 million people. The infrastructure is in place. All that remains is purchasing the new transmitter itself.
