2 MILLION RESPONSES TO THE GOSPEL
Two Million Responses,
Last Year Alone!
FEBC broadcasts are heard in 105 languages and 49 countries around the world aired from 149 stations and transmitters, totaling 842 hours of programming a day/365 days a year. But numbers only tell part of the story. Far more important are the lives impacted by our global radio network that shares the Good News of Jesus Christ with a potential listening audience of 3 billion people. We know listeners are tuning in, because of the many text messages, emails, phone calls, letters and visits we receive. Last year alone, we heard from over 2 million listeners, many of whom attest to changed lives. The common thread running through these responses is hope found in Christ, a hope that is transforming lives. And these numbers don’t even include the tens of thousands of listeners who respond through our website and Social Media.
Reaching Ethnic People Groups
Committed to reaching the remote, FEBC has been training and using indigenous programmers for many years, for the purpose of reaching people in their native language. More than two thirds of FEBC’s total programming is delivered by nationals in 83 different ethnic languages. Regardless of the language, radio is an excellent way to reach people in almost any location or circumstance. It not only breaks the barrier of illiteracy for those who cannot read, it’s the perfect vehicle for those living in cultures and countries that oppose Christianity. While someone seeking to know more about Christ from a Buddhist or Muslim culture would be reluctant to open their door to a Christian, they would privately listen to a radio or Internet program in their quest for the truth.
President Ed Cannon on 2016:
“Each year I continue to be amazed at the doors God opens for us. This year, you have been an essential part of establishing seven new stations and distributing thousands of radios. But just like every ministry, 2016 was a year with many challenges. In every challenge we’ve seen a door close and God open a brand new one. And at each step of the way we’ve seen God’s accomplishments and His will- and that’s what its all about, being faithful to what He wants us to do.”
