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.

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. You can help keep the light shining in Afghanistan, Pakistan and North India. The goal is $210,000 to keep current programs strong and expand our broadcasts to provide even more opportunities for people to know Christ.
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.
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.
