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 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.

After the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Japanese were shaken. Many lost their homes, their agriculture, and their livelihoods. One missionary said he had never seen such soft hearts in the country of Japan. Then God brought together a team of Japanese Christians who have joined TWR with the needed skills to speak the hope of Jesus Christ in a desperate situation.
Since TWR began broadcasting to Pakistan, Afghanistan and North India via the PANI transmitter in 2014, our team has heard from thousands of Afghan listeners. For many, it’s the only source of spiritual light they have. Without the PANI broadcasts, seekers would have no one to answer their questions. Help us help keep the light shining in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and North India.
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. 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.
