Our office in Kazakhstan was officially incorporated in June 2005 with the hope of establishing local FM stations in 2 major cities: Almaty and Astana. While we have made progress in securing required licenses for the FM stations, we are still waiting for the government to issue us specific FM frequencies. Until then, we are reaching listeners by shortwave and Internet broadcasts. The majority of people living in Kazakhstan are culturally Muslim.

Kazakhstan Ministry Highlights
Director of FEBC Germany and Central Asia, Rudi Wiens
At the main studio in Almaty, we produce a local program in the Kazakh language, which is intended mainly for our Internet broadcast. The goal remains to establish 2 major FM stations in Almaty and Astana.
Until the Kazakh government issues us FM frequencies, we are only able to share our broadcasts online. The goal is to establish 2 major FM stations as soon as the frequencies are issued.
Types of Programs
FEBC Kazakhstan produces programs that are 100% Gospel oriented—60% evangelistic and 40% for nurturing and developing the community through a biblical perspective
FEBC Kazakhstan partners with local government leaders to bring awareness and provide solutions to social issues. These partnerships allow local ministries, such as orphanages, foster homes, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers to voice their concerns, share their knowledge, and suggest ways the community can improve and support those in need. FEBC staff and programmers also collaborate with local officials to care for the neediest in the community. They reach out to families in need of assistance with back-to-school and holiday preparations every summer and winter.
In 2015, approximately 1,572 listeners called, emailed, or texted FEBC Kazakhstan and 11,552 visited the web.
