FEBC’s Impact

Radio is critical to our ability to share the Gospel with the people of Indonesia. Yet, right now, our station in the city of Makassar is in danger of going off the air due to lack of funding.

This nation of stark contrasts—and widespread spiritual need—is made up of more than 13,000 islands, where millions of men, women, and children live in huge, teeming cities or on distant islands and deep in rain forests. Radio remains vital in penetrating the lonely cities and remote regions where isolated people live without hearing the Good News.
