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.

In the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan, expressing interest in Christianity can mean persecution in the form of tapped phone conversations, violent church raids, and exorbitant fines. The hostility can be felt from dictatorial authorities as well as intimate family and friends. Three of TWR's programs for Central Asia are designed to disciple first-generation Christians in God’s Word.
How can believers and seekers in the Middle East find a church when they are often isolated? Countless young believers, house church pastors, and lay leaders find spiritual nourishment through TWR programs like Talmatha, Healing Touches, Youth in Mind, and Women of Hope, each program especially designed for a specific audience to give new believers a strong biblical foundation.
With TWR's newly upgraded 450,000-watt station called Shine 800 AM Bonaire, we can reach all of Cuba, some of the unreached people groups of the Amazon, and many areas in between.
TWR Women of Hope brings hope in Jesus to women around the world and across generations. We seek to educate, encourage, and equip women to pray, listen, learn, grow, and give through media, small-group interaction, and leadership development. is our online source of Christian content in multiple languages, and people go to it more than 1 million times each month for inspiring messages, music and radio streaming, HD videos, sermon podcasts, audio Bibles, the JESUS film, and more from TWR and over 200 of our like-minded ministry partners.
TWR has an opportunity to take the Good News further into Nigeria and strengthen the Church there. We're launching a powerful new 200,000-watt transmitter broadcasting hope into all of Nigeria, as well as parts of the neighboring countries of Cameroon, Benin and Niger.
