Indonesia is made up of 13,000 islands, and is home to the largest Muslim population in the world. Our current stations reach millions of people in metro areas . . . but many more people live in isolated rural areas. These souls remain unreached.

FEBC was recently given the opportunity to immediately add 85 existing radio stations to our Indonesian outreach network. These stations are positioned to reach the villages of people who live on distant islands and deep in rainforests.

The stations—owned by small churches or Christian businessmen—already exist but have very little Gospel content! Each one of them is eager to bring FEBC’s Gospel broadcasts to their listeners . . . an estimated 500,000 unreached people. And most of them are Muslims!

There are significant expenses, however, including the creation of new biblical programming specific to their language and culture. On top of that, we must install new equipment and fund the operating expenses for the year ahead.

We are asking for your gift today to help raise the $382,000 needed for these 85 stations to transmit the Gospel.

Through your help, God has opened a door that will allow us to expand our outreach in ways we never imagined possible. We will be able to reach the hearts of more Muslims, planting the seeds of faith in families and entire villages!

But we must move quickly to equip these stations with biblical content and the updated equipment. There are more than 500,000 Muslim listeners who may otherwise never learn that salvation can be theirs through faith in Jesus.

Please share a generous gift today to raise the urgently needed $382,000 so these 85 stations can share God’s Word.

We sincerely thank you for your support and your prayers as we step out in faith to seize this incredible opportunity God has given us to advance the Kingdom in Indonesia.

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.
