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.

TWR has a major hub of Spanish program production in Venezuela, but the economic collapse in recent years has made ministry very difficult for our staff. An additional studio in Colombia will provide support for program production in Latin America.
TWR’s "PANI" broadcasts generate thousands of responses each year from those who want to know more about Jesus. The programs in a variety of languages teach Scripture, encourage healthy family relationships, share testimonies of new believers, and explain how to start a home church.
The Sindh province in Pakistan has a population of 50 million and is the second most populated province in the country. It has been the hardest hit by the catastrophic flooding of 2022 in Pakistan, with 464 percent more rain than the 30-year average. Numerous homes have been damaged, and many people currently do not have a place to stay. Those displaced number in the millions.
TWR’s Africa Broadcast Center in Johannesburg, South Africa, is a hub of Christian radio program production and ministry activity for the Africa region. The office complex, however, experiences rolling power outages that require a generator, driving up costs for fuel and maintenance. The power cuts damage the computer equipment, keep the staff from working, and cause wear on the aging generator. TWR has successfully installed solar systems at our West Africa and Guam stations.
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.
