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.

While much of the media world goes digital, including some of TWR’s ministries, there are still very strategic places for shortwave radio, and one of those is our ministry to China. TWR is still sharing the gospel by shortwave radio, and we are refreshing our ministry to China with new content that is solidly biblical.
Gifts to Hope for the Middle East keep a wide variety of Arabic programs on the air by radio, Arabic Internet Radio, and in some cases handheld devices distributed by TWR. Programs for young people, along with Women of Hope in Arabic and the discipleship program Talmatha, are providing spiritual food and guidance to those at risk of persecution.
The Way of Righteousness is a radio program that is expanding rapidly around the TWR world because of its proven ability to explain the Scriptures to Muslims. With about 50 languages now available or in production, it generates great feedback from listeners, it generates great feedback from listeners, including a remarkable number deciding to follow Jesus.
As Ukraine, Russia and Belarus go to war, and we watch the crisis unfold in near real time, TWR will continue speaking hope to this region of Eastern Europe. Long before the Iron Curtain fell, we were reaching out to the Soviet Union with gospel programming, and we’re not about to turn our backs on our brothers and sisters in these lands now.
