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.

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.
About half of all Ukrainians live in poverty, and the recent political turmoil has only added to their anxiety. The rampant use of drugs and alcohol takes a tremendous toll on society, and many Ukrainian women deal with the effects of prostitution, trafficking, HIV/AIDS, abortion, and divorce. Learn how TWR is ministering to the people of Ukraine and how you can become involved.
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.
