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 areas like Thailand, where there are over 50 million people on Facebook, only 1% of the people believe in Jesus. People are online, plugged in, connected and watching videos. And we want to meet them where they are with the good news of Jesus! That’s why TWR MOTION exists! It’s the visual media ministry of TWR and an effective companion to our broadcast efforts. Right now, church planters, missionaries and ministries serving in predominantly Buddhist areas are reaching out and asking for.
Women in some cultures are not taught that they are precious to God or viewed as equal to men. We want to teach women that, according to Scripture, they are loved by God, have value as God’s creation, can be free from shame and guilt, can live a life of purpose, and can be healthy spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. In this new ministry from TWR Women of Hope, the magazine-style program called Precious and Beloved will be produced in 52 English episodes.
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.
TWR360 is an online platform and digital app that people can use to discover and grow in their understanding of the Bible. No matter where they are. Any time of day. On any connected device. In more than 100 heart languages. And absolutely free. With over 123,400 programs available online – including worship music and gospel-centric videos – TWR360 is a deep well of truth, answers and eternal hope.
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.
