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.

Your gifts to TWR’s Global Media Outreach Fund are used to support many of our media projects around the world with strategic technology, staffing, and management that continue to increase our efficiency. Because of TWR’s vast coverage area, made possible through high-power radio broadcasts, internet streaming, and other digital platforms, we are able to make the gospel available to approximately 4 billion of the world’s population in their own languages for just a penny per person.
How can believers and seekers in the Middle East find a church when they are often isolated? Countless young believers, house church pastors, and lay leaders find spiritual nourishment through TWR programs like Talmatha, Healing Touches, Youth in Mind, and Women of Hope, each program especially designed for a specific audience to give new believers a strong biblical foundation.
From TWR’s broadcasts into Pakistan, Afghanistan, and North India (PANI), we receive about 400 responses each month from those who want to know more about Jesus. As they hear about him in their heart languages, they are asking good questions and considering his teachings. A gift toward our goal of $180,000 for the coming year will help TWR to continue introducing people to the Savior in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and North India.
Having a stable electricity supply is vital to our broadcast operations, but typhoons that are common to the Pacific can knock out power lines or the island power plants. Having a backup generator keeps us on the air, but our current generator is 24 years old and runs the transmitters at only 50 percent power. Plus, replacement parts are hard to find. We plan to increase our broadcast hours at KTWR, and a new generator is critical to powering all three transmitters.
