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 190 countries with biblical truth. For over 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.

Watching the events of the Middle East unfold over the last several years has intensified our desire to bring the hope of the gospel to Muslims affected by devastating war, lives lost, homes destroyed, and mass migration to other countries. TWR’s programs for the Middle East are part of our global focus on reaching our Muslim neighbors for Christ. With a small radio or a cellphone, those in despair are being encouraged through the life-giving Arabic programs of TWR.
Radical extremism is on the rise throughout the continent of Africa. And the 10 countries in the world with the youngest populations are all in Africa, where the median ages are between 14 and 22. For youth living with poverty, misery, and injustice, radicalization is a temptation. But TWR’s powerful broadcasts are ideal for reaching deep into the heartlands of Africa.
TWR is upgrading our broadcast signal in the Caribbean and Latin America from 100,000 to 450,000 watts, and this will mean a significant increase in the cost of electricity. This stronger signal from the island of Bonaire will double our potential listening audience from 50 million to 100 million people. Your gifts to Shine 800 AM Bonaire will support the new transmitter operations and take the gospel farther and stronger throughout Latin America.
TWR’s SON-Lift project for China is an integrated media strategy to sow seeds of the gospel among 105 of the world’s remaining unreached people groups (UPGs) of China.
TWR Women of Hope is a ministry offering compassion, encouragement, and hope to suffering women worldwide by organizing prayer groups in more than 120 countries, promoting awareness of women’s issues, and producing radio programming. Your gift to TWR Women of Hope will make a spiritual difference in a woman’s life.
As more and more people worldwide get internet access, they’re looking for answers and information online. It’s absolutely vital to “meet them where they are” by making clear, biblical teaching readily available – in a way that’s high quality, appealing and simple to use.
